There are several schools of yoga, including, Raja yoga (meditation), Jnaya yoga (self study) Tantra (divine energy) and the form of yoga that I am qualified to teach, which is Hatha Yoga.
Hatha yoga utilises physical postures to create areas of high and low internal pressure which increases the circulation of energy and information throughout the body.
My yoga practice is physiological.
It's not about looking good in a pose.
I tend to de-emphasise advanced asana practice in favour of simple postures done correctly for best physiological effect. This is how I practice and this is how I teach in order to minimise the risk of injury and to ensure that my practice is going to have the best outcomes physically and physiologically in the short term, medium term and long term.
Even though Hatha yoga is associated primarily with asana and vinyasa, the ultimate goal of these physical postures is to be physically able to sit in meditation for extremely long periods of time and to live long enough to realise the truth - That individual consciousness is one with universal consciousness.
