Dhyana Yoga - Tried a new teacher!

Yesterday morning I dragged myself out of bed and down the street to Dhyana Yoga (1737 Chestnut) to go to Jonathan's class.

It was worth the extra effort! His style was very familiar - being a combination of Iyengar and Anusara, his assists were phenomenal, and his transitions were fluid - almost lyrical!

He stopped by an event we had last night and I asked him about his music selection. He told me that he likes to push the envelope in his music selection, because he feels like western music can be just as inspiring during yoga as eastern music.

Rock on Jonathan!

So there was much music that I recognized. And I was psyched after the millionth time we did a vinyasa and ended up in Warrior II to hear Tribe Called Quest! That youthful energy of his combined with an ancient practice was a refreshing change of pace.

Tomorrow I'm going again, as Tuesday he has surgery and will be out for a couple weeks. Saturday I'm going to try his other studio (not his class) called "Practice Yoga" on 4th and Catherine... then I can stop by Fabric Row too.

Namaste and type to you then.
