i’ve practiced Sivananda yoga for more than 2 years. it is a “classical” yoga system (as opposed to much modern yoga which seems to see yoga as a form of gymnastics) incorporating breathing, mantras and vedic philosophy and more.
Personally, I would be very confused if I went to India. in the map showing their center, there are 20 or 30 other yoga centers, all very near Anand prakash Yoga ashram.
Then Something unusual happened…
i was reviewing some of the videos of Anada Prakash Yoga on youtube, when a “Vamadheva Yoga” video caught my eye… after watching the impressive yogasanas of the founder, N.S.M. Raajan, I had dropped Sivananda Yoga and started practicing this, mainly because I was able to detect that this yoga placed a premium on opening the hips so that you can get into full lotus.
Thank you Amber!
I was in Macon for 4 whole weeks after reading her ad, but I never took the time to take her instruction, which as you can see is quite extensive.
Life is strange that way…
And my Sivananda hoodie disappeared as soon as I made the decision and I could not find the damned thing anywhere after being with that jersey through thick and thin!
