My practice has evolved greatly over the last 30 years. As a young yogi, I loved intensity and spent hours in Bikram studios in New York City. The pursuit of intense sensation above all else leads to injury, and I've had mild injuries (not all caused by yoga) that have loosened my definition of what constitutes a personal practice. Academically, I've studied Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Restorative, Iyengar, as well as Transcendental Meditation and Zen Meditation.
