A Chat with Old Skool Yoga
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Ashtanga yoga emphasizes the Vinyasa or breathing and movement system. The purpose of Vinyasa is internal cleansing. The combination of the asanas with movement and breath make the blood hot and thin, circulating freely around all the joints, taking away body pains, and cleansing the nervous system.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
Each student is considered as an individual and taught at a pace that is suitable for them. Postures purify the body, breathing purifies the nervous system, and gazing points purify the mind. Sweat is an important byproduct of the Ashtanga-Vinyasa method. Only through sweat purification happens.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The practice of Ashtanga yoga has given me peace of mind, a healthy body, and hope. I believe that if more people practiced yoga, the world would be a different, better place. Ashtanga’s lineage of teachers goes back to the early 1900s. My hope is to continue the lineage.
What do you love most about your job?
I love being a part of an ever-growing circle of friends who practice Ashtanga yoga. I also enjoy helping others achieve their full potential through the practice of Ashtanga yoga.
