How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body

I was so relieved to read the article “How Yoga Can Wreck Your Body” in this Sunday’s New York Times Magazine.

I started studying yoga with Swami Boa in the early 1980s and soon jumped wholeheartedly into Iyengar study and teaching. Very quickly, by 1986 or so, I was noticing my yoga teachers had injuries that seemed to be caused by yoga. I checked out Kripalu, Bikram, Satchidnanda, and Ashtanga styles and found teachers with injuries seemingly caused by yoga in those traditions too. This led me into the approach to yoga I have developed since then. I ask a few simple questions and then gently guide as I teach yoga and movement repatterning. My work is centered on encouraging your own body’s wisdom to guide the movements that are best for you. This leads to a gentle support that is strong, balanced, and flexible.
