hi. i'm Dhugal.
i'm a (fairly) well-known yoga teacher trainer, acupuncturist and functional movement specialist.
- we are too often stressed out about how our yoga should look. postural yoga should not only be accepting of difference, it should celebrate it.
- big poses are not necessarily advanced. if you can't do them (but you tried), it's not necessarily because you are not bendy enough. this is good anatomy (jaw drop).
- we are often not sure how yogic philosophy applies to modern lives. this is a shame. modern people are often confused, stressed. yoga philosophy is not a 'counterbalance' to a stressful life, it is a fresh, exciting new perspective on how to live life... now.
- I'll show you a 'functional' approach: each posture, each meditation has a function (which rarely involves looking cool), and is a deep opportunity to engage in the magic of the human experience.
each pose - unique to you, each meditation - a chance to realise you are part of it all.
maybe you'll even find a passion to teach others. like i do.
