Pattabhi Jois is famous for saying Practice is 99% of yoga, theory only 1%. If you have not begun a yoga practice or are in need of perfecting your alignment and understanding of the poses, I encourage you to try the JWM individual video yoga pose modules, which teach each posture in detail from the most modified variation to the intermediate and advanced variations. All modules are accessible online, on any computer or mobile device as well as your Apple TV so that you can learn in your very own home from the absolute basics. Classes can be great but also intimidating especially if you have yet to establish a foundation. I hope the comfort of being able to practice at home and at your own pace and at your level, will get you started on an amazing journey. Once you master the basic postures, you can begin the JWM online educational 30-Minute classes in which I methodically bring the poses together in sequences to provide you with an extremely safe and well-rounded practice.
