Groupon Asks Mark Westmoquette, teacher at Your Universe Yoga, to tell us a little more about his brand of the exercise technique.
G: What's your chosen form of yoga, and why?
"I teach a style called zen yoga. This style is influenced by the philosophy of Zen Buddhism, and there is therefore a strong emphasis on mindfulness and the need for our practice to be of use to us in our daily lives. I have spend many years training with yoga master Jonathan Monks, and his style has strongly influenced my teaching. I often teach flowing vinyasas (postures linked together in a sequence) with an emphasis on the spine and our relationship to the ground."
G: What types of people join your classes?
"My classes are suitable for everyone, from complete beginners to people who have been doing yoga for a while. They may not always be that fast paced, but they are always challenging."
G: What is the toughest part about yoga?
"For me, the toughest part of yoga practice is developing connection and sensitivity to my body and mind. There's no use being able to float up to a handstand with one leg behind your head if you can't feel what this movement is doing on physical, mental, emotional, and energetic levels! Staying 100% present without letting your mind wander for an hour-long class is incredibly difficult!"
G: What do you enjoy most about teaching yoga?
"I love teaching people how to find more connection between their mind, body and the space around them, how to become stronger, fitter and more flexible in both their minds and bodies, and how to take responsibility for their health. But above all, I enjoy building relationships with my students, and watching their progression as yoga students, with the benefits that that entails."
