Spiritual or Physical Yoga

“Any spirituality can be enhanced with the practice or study of yoga”.

– Some yoga wisdom from Christy Turlington

Here’s where it starts… yoga compliments your other spiritual practice – sure, but lets not deny the roots of yoga.

Many yoga centres manage to steer around the spiritual core of the practice, but when people want that next step and get in to a yoga course or yoga teacher training they get the goods.  I have always wondered why so many yoga teachers emphatically present yoga as a de-spiritualised practise in the first place… one of my enduring passions about yoga is the fact that it is a truly ancient and highly-spiritualised practice based centuries of human experience.

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.
