The Yoga Yoga Story
The story of Yoga Yoga begins with a woman and a man. In 1994, after twenty years of an off-again and on-again yoga practice, my wife and I were facing a crisis in our lives and our marriage. In one direction was pain and self-destruction, and in the other direction was the one thing we knew would work — yoga.
The blessing was that the choice was so obvious. Do yoga or lose everything. We turned all our energy into our yoga practice. We turned the extra bedroom into a yoga room and plunged into teacher training courses, weeklong yoga retreats, workshops and classes. We rekindled a life-long love for Kundalini Yoga, practiced Ashtanga Yoga with a new passion, and discovered the power of Hatha Yoga to heal our bodies and open our hearts.
