Thoughts on Yoga
My name is Joel Markus and I have been a student of Yoga for three years. I started yoga when I turned 60 and now hopefully a student for the rest of my life. It has made a significant difference in my well being both mentally and physically. The style of Yoga resembles Kripalu style of Yoga. It primarily focuses on breathing, balance, strength, flexibility, and a mental awareness of what’s going on around and within you.
Currently I’ve been going through some personal life crises and changes, I found that Yoga has helped me cope with these very emotional situations as a significant method for relieving stress. I have also noticed that my physical core is much stronger then it has ever been in many years. I have lost weight and my muscles have become much more toned.
Yoga Instructors can tremendously impact your adaptability and appreciation of this art form. I have worked with several instructors but Monica Ingham’s personal style is a perfect fit for me. Her awareness of all her student’s physical or mental current situations plays a significant role on how she decides to conducts the class. Her teaching style is not a routine process in the least bit, but more of a personal method, directed towards what is currently going on in our lives. Monica is an amazing teacher and for me it has been a pleasure and gift in numerous ways from watching her constantly trying to improve her instructing style to satisfying my own physical and mental well being.
