The enormous respect and love I have for yoga’s healing power – is the catalyst for all the work I do, and is the same reason I am sharing this sequence with you. I first shared this yoga sequence with all my friends on Facebook just a little while ago – however, the incredible, positive effect it had on all those viewed it, ranging from physical and emotional to spiritual, took me by surprise. It reminded me that for all the lectures and writing I do about the power of yoga – this little short series might just pack a more powerful punch.
I could speak until I’m blue in the face (and sometimes I do), extolling the merits of yoga – but I think you may glean way more benefit by just watching the series.
I am sure that the yoga and medical community alike would have something to say if it was performed by say, a “speedo-clad yoga guru” or medical celebrity expert of the traditional type. However, it’s not. It’s not even completed by someone with teacher training or even a serious yoga practice.
And that is exactly the point of sharing this sequence:
Since I am a member of both the yoga and medical community, I feel I can say this without offense to either:
The yoga world should consider taking themselves and their dogma about lineages less seriously, because this series shows just how accessible yoga is to anyone – regardless of who their teacher or guru was/is and what lineage/type they studied. The medical community can glean a bit of wisdom from this series too. They might consider acknowledging that yoga can help you grow, glow, heal, recover, and more – through the simplicity of just 2 tools: 1) having a willingness to try something different, and 2) having a yoga mat (and many times you don’t even need that).
Finally, you can realize, like a lot of my friends did, that yoga is possible for anyone and can even feel instinctive and natural. Yes truly, even for this unlikely (and unknowing) yoga teacher here.
So here is a fresh, new, exclusive yoga sequence from one of my three greatest yoga teachers. I hope that you find this series of photographs does speak volumes, and indeed says more, than a thousand words.
