I always thought yoga was stupid or silly or a complete waste of time. I thought it was for people who didn't want a "real" work out. Then I decided to try it once at Edge Yoga and I was amazed. After my first few sessions I couldn't believe how sore I was even though I workout almost every day. I thought I had good body awareness until coming here and trying to follow along. The instructors are very hands on and helpful with correcting poses in a way I haven't seen in many other yoga classes. There always seems to be something you can do to improve your pose and they help you with it.
The also do a good job working with multiple levels in a single class. Start with something easy (well...ish anyway) and if you feel up to it they show you the more advanced techniques as well.
Now, I go to yoga as an active rest from my more demanding physical activities and if it weren't for this class, I would need more massage and chiropractic adjustments.
I love that Mark's style isn't too eastern and philosophical. He's also a strength and conditioning coach so instead of telling you to "reach for the sun" or some other yoga-ey phrase, he tells you things like "relax your glutes", "activate your hamstrings", etc. Much more direct and easy to follow instructions. You'll quickly find yourself doing balances you never dreamed you could under his careful instruction.
