Being Yoga…

“You cannot do yoga. Yoga is your natural state. What you can do are yoga exercises, which may reveal to you where you are resisting your natural state”.
– Some yoga wisdom from Sharon Gannon

Oh Sharon – your yoga centres occasionally push hard, but your philosophy is fundamentally cool.

I have found Sharon Gannon’s yoga courses to be quite demanding at times, but that’s probably because I am not terribly serious about my practice.  I mean I LOVE my practice and will probably always do yoga, and study the occasional yoga course, but I am hardly on any stellar yoga teacher trajectory.  I do love the idea of yoga being your natural state… and think of this on the out-breath.  Thanks Shaz.

Yours,

Restaurant reviewers find it easier to travel incognito, and so do I. I travel a lot for work and use this as an excuse check out yoga classes, yoga courses and yoga colleges around my home country, Australia. In this yoga blog, I refer to yoga centres in Sydney. I am not actually a yoga teacher, just a passionate yoga student.

I have practised yoga in the US and have done yoga courses in India but have no bias towards any yoga style. Actually, maybe I am biased to a yoga style, or at least certain methods of education applied in yoga courses, but I’ll leave it to you to find out what that is. My mission? I just want people to think a little deeper about yoga.
