As a yoga teacher I feel obliged to remind you that yoga is not the journey of the body, it's the journey within. Yoga is simply not just about the asana, the exercise, the body. But in order to soften and drop in, the body needs to be strong and agile.
And if you're anything like me, you enjoy challenging things. You want to be able to do arm balances, handstands and maybe even dip your toes into other cool practices - like "animal style" type of movement or light acrobatics.
You simply want to feel STRONG and CAPABLE!
