True yoga is a formal method based on universal ideals that have been established over millenia. Unfortunately, these ideals are not honored by all western studios.
Though our methods may at times seem progressive or even experimental, all of our sequences and techniques are meticulously developed to support the complex, interconnected systems within the original Core 26+2 sequence.
In Yoga, balance is one of the core principles that guides us. More than just a quality related to remaining upright and not falling, balance is an ideal relationship between two or more things.
This principle can be applied to many aspects of our practice. For example: developing a balance of strength & flexibility is required to progress in any of the Core 26+2 postures. This is why we say, “pulling is the object of stretching.”
At Yoga Key, we work with an emerging paradigm of balance to help our students experience breakthroughs in their practice: Essentially, we’ve crafted our Warm Yin class to be directly complementary to Core 26+2, with each serving the other to expand your practice to new levels.
Experimenting with the ratio of Warm Yin to Core 26+2 classes you are taking over time can help you find an optimal balance between strength, flexibility and other factors while working through challenging obstacles in your practice.
The development of this program is informed and refined by our personal practice, interactions with students and ongoing study of the field. Join us in our exploration of this simple, yet revolutionary approach to Yoga.
