The "style" of Yoga Brad teaches draws from the original texts of yoga* and uses sound, systematic, time tested principles of movement, natural health and energy of the human body.

 

 

In this culture, we have turned yoga into an exercise class. This is not yoga but one aspect of it called asana that is being based off of western exercise theory, not yoga. This is what the general public thinks yoga is but it is so much more.

In Brad's class the instruction considers the individual needs of every student, and is based on the unique issues of each student's posture, injuries or limitations, mind set, and energy level. In practice, the client is guided to use the soundest principles of natural movement. The focus is on stability from the inner body (core) so that the outer body can move freely and lengthen.

As a result, the body becomes firmer and stronger in the core, bringing ease of movement to the outer body. Blended into the practice is a focus on energy and the movement of energy that helps expand and ground rather than contract the body. Consequently, the mind and spirit expand and the body becomes grounded. Yoga becomes a practice of ease rather than one of stress and effort.
