My name is Allen Barkus and I am one of the more experienced teachers in Philadelphia, teaching traditional yoga since 2004. In yoga direct lineage is considered very important. My teacher brought Ashtanga/Vinyasa yoga to America in 1975. One thing I have observed, especially since I teach teachers, is how limited most teachers are with their knowledge of the practice. Things that are generally not taught well include breathing techniques (core of yoga), proper assists, altering the practice to the physical needs of students, how asanas/poses affect internal organs, energy flow and chanting (non-religious and only taught if student is interested).
My experience includes training yoga teachers, people recovering from surgeries and cancer, corporate classes/clinics, an athletic team at the University of Pennsylvania, people seeking to lose weight and with children. Your practice will be uniquely yours.
