goal of yoga

You can do yoga, and enjoy it!

And, now, the study of yoga begins together.                                           —Yoga Sutra 1.1

*Editor’s note:  AHA Yoga does NOT teach headstand (Salamba Sirasana/Sirasana), and only incorporates half shoulder stand (Ardha Sarvangasana) for intermediate students, due to increased risks of pain, discomfort, and injury.  Benefits of yoga asana practice can be gained through safer, easier alternatives. For more on advances in yoga literature and science and current debates see: the article and compiled research by Matthew Remski.
