Ashtanga Yoga Teacher

Category: Therapy
Maybe you just want to lose some weight to look great in your clothing, are thinking about training for a long distance run, or possibly you have physical issues like back and joint problems you'd like to heal . Yoga is a great way to get started looking and feeling great!

Ashtanga yoga is the best full-body physical workout you and your loved ones will ever experience along with wonderful meditative benefits. I teach in the traditional Mysore style with hands-on assists, great for both beginners and for those who already have an established practice since you only progress into the practice as you are able. We will also largely focus on proper breathing and correct alignment, both not always taught properly in classes. I also teach hands-on assists to other teachers, something some are not experienced in or comfortable doing.

In 8 months one of my students, whom had no prior yoga experience, lost 70 pounds. Of course he worked hard to achieve that result along with full-body strengthening, toning and increased physical endurance. Another student was thrilled that she dropped a full dress size practicing with me 2 times a week over 2 months. Other students tell me how their back problems, breathing and posture have improved. Of course you will also gain balance in your life and a quiet mind from the meditative part of the practice.

My name is Allen Barkus and I am one of the few teachers in Philadelphia teaching traditional Ashtanga yoga healing therapy exclusively to private students.
