A few years ago I tried yoga at a local gym but didn’t enjoy it as much as my other fitness classes I was taking. At the time, I found it to be slow and boring but I realized I needed to find the right fit of both the particular yoga class and teacher. This brings me to my interview with Michael Perkola. He finds a way to take the stuffiness and seriousness of yoga by making it fun and playful. Every time he teaches I leave feeling more confident as well a little more comfortable with my practice. I have to be careful not to compare myself to others as I have my own physical restraints from my scoliosis surgery. Instead I focus on how I feel at the end of each class which is stronger mentally and physically.
