“In Western science, we observe the world outside to try to change it. In yoga, we observe the world inside and try to change it.”Swami Vivekananda
This is the core of our trainings, classes and teachings: by working on ourselves, by overcoming patterns of thinking, feeling and acting that do not serve us or others, we can truly make the world a little bit better.
All the Functional Yoga teaching programs have two departing points:
- All bodies are unique, which is the basis of our anatomy studies
- We are more than our bodies, which is the basis of our philosophical explorations.
By getting to know ourselves physically we will understand the poses and what they are supposed to give us and our students; by getting to know what hinders and what inspires us we will understand the practices that bring us insight, contentment and joy.
