Why I would never recommend this posture to a beginner (or anyone really)
Born of a background in functional anatomy and blessed by the good fortune of maturing in an ashram of traditional Hatha Yoga, international yoga teacher, Daniel Rama, is known for bringing a powerful balance of both new and old.
His journey towards yoga began with an at first unfortunate accident, and a grim diagnosis. Being told by doctors that he would never be able to run again, was one of the most traumatic experiences for the young man studying to become a personal trainer. Through increasingly unappealing circumstances, yoga eventually lead Rama beyond his darkness, and back into the Light.
After having tasted the healing powers of yoga and meditation, young Rama made it his life purpose to share these gifts with the world. Present day, together with his partner Shakti, Rama’s main focus is on teaching students how to fine tune the foundations of their asana practice, and safely advance into the realms of physicality and beyond.
