His class begins with  a pose of centering.
Align the core chakras.

Be led through gentle back stretches:
Marjaryasana (cat pose)
Bitilasana (cow pose).
Move  to standing into tadasana (mountain).

 

Offered at  slower pace than at an Ashtanga studio,
the  pace is still quick.
Get assistance in pose
during class time. Be helped to find the gentle edge of
relaxation and balance with strength.

Drop your ideas that  Ashtanga  is torture on
the body! You’ll feel challenged by the benefits of Tom’s  class.
You will however be comfortable in your first class. Leave
judgement behind. Use his modifications for beginners.
The effects become visible over several weeks.
Physical health is derived from a quiet mind
and the connection of body, mind and soul,
