Ashtanga Yoga has been labelled the "yoga for Type A personalities ". And one of the most valuable lessons to be learned from an experienced teacher is surrendering one's type A personality & trusting in their wisdom & experience. In this vdo , Ryan Spielman demonstrates that the art of adjusting is a unique skill. If done well, an adjustment can transform a yoga practitioner , offering immediate insight into the higher potentials of the body while triggering the inspiration to realize those potentials.
