Hi all. After reading this article
, it reminded me how distracing I find the spiritual/mind aspect of yoga, which has caused me to not participate in a class for at least the last seven years. Now that I live in a different place, I'd like to try again.
Can anyone recommend a specific class
, as in a specific person at a specific studio who teaches a beginners
' class (I forgot everything) that is more straightforward and body-focused ["Let's get strong!--now put your butt in this pose"] and less spiritual ["Let's align our chakras and breathe the universe in and out of our spirit" or whatever].
Requirements: Must be pay-by-the-class (I'm not ready to commit to a package or membership) and must be close to the L train (I live in Bushwick and I can't commute an hour for an hour class). Do any of the Yoga to the People studios have a class like this?
