"If Clubbell Yoga was easy, then everyone would do it. "
The truth is that it is hard. It takes concentration, presence, commitment, openness and willingness to grow.
One thing that I learned while conducting this first UK seminar is that there is a war going on right now. There are countless theories, brands, styles, teachers out there putting their "stamp of approval" on their method. Once there is a stamp, there is no room for innovation. Clubbell Yoga is not meant to replace other methods of training, or other yoga practices. It is meant to supplement your current training.
I recently learned that one of my international Clubbell Yoga instructors has absolutely no support from her nation's Yoga Association. In fact, they call it "made in China" or "imposter yoga". Though they have no understanding of the system, CST or who this training is meant for.
When I started this work, my goal was to bridge the gap between strength training and yoga. However, the more I realize how stubborn both industries are to change, the more I realize I would rather build my own island (instead of a bridge) where the focus is on quality movement- free of labels.
The confusion arises when people ask: "is it yoga? With weights?" Or "is it fitness? With Yoga?" There is no definitive answer, because it is something new. It is mind body exercise, it is quality movement, it is grounded in alignment and CST principles.
And if it were easy, then everyone would be doing it. We are not a certification mill. We are a tribe, a legion, forging a new path.
