With Yoga being offered everywhere and the ease of getting Yoga training, it has left the novice practitioner wondering where to go and who to learn with! With everything that is wonderful about the accessibility of Yoga, it can be challenging to pick out the “good Yoga”
Personally, I think what makes “good Yoga” is the class and the instructor that meets your needs. And of course, when you are a beginner, you are not quite sure what your needs are, but may have some vague expectations. If you walk away from a class feeling discouraged, frustrated, confused and injured (God forbid), which can and does happen, it is not necessarily due to poor teaching or ” bad Yoga” This can happen in any field and Yoga is no exception. With so much available comes the responsibility on the part of the student to educate oneself, ask questions, take a sample class, read testimonials, talk to other students, talk with the teacher, owner to get a comfort level with the studio/teacher. Regardless, I am big on having a safe Yoga practice, so read my blog here. How to practice Yoga Safely
Ultimate point of Yoga is development of consciousness and spirituality and using body as a tool to move beyond the body. “Yoga” means to unite with what we have become separated from. Separated from ourselves, looking everywhere but “inside”, is exhausting and does not last. Yoga is an inward journey leading to physical agility, peace of mind and an open heart, most importantly an experience of yourself as you are. Yoga is as deep as you would like to go, but it will take you as you are.

Regardless of how much now is available in the realm of exercise, fitness and yoga, there still is a large number of people who are not able to go the gym, do outdoor activities or attend a group exercise or yoga class due to pain, physical limitations, arthritis, recovering form a long term illness or surgery and other chronic conditions. If you fit in that category, then The Yoga School of Milford is for you. Contact us so we may guide you to an appropriate class.
Depending on the severity of the limitations, you may be advised to schedule private sessions until you are ready to attend group classes.
