The hows and whys of yoga punkiness

OK, so if you've ever taken a yoga class with me, or if you've even had a conversation about yoga with me, you might have figured out that I have an unconventional approach to the practice.

Here's the thing: I am 100% sold on the transformational power of yoga.  Spiritual, mental, physical transformation, it is all available to you on the mat.  I'm so confident about it, that I feel freed to do whatever it takes to get that experience, even if it deviates from tradition.  Sometimes getting into a pose from a different angle can create a new and fresh perspective, and I want my students to share in that, too.

That philosophy prompted me to submit an article to Teachasana about Creative Modifications so that other teachers can be inspired to look at new ways to move through the practice, and so my students can have a behind-the-scenes look at why I do what I do.
