Well, the Sonic style seems about 75% this:

Of course, all that trick cinematography gave me a bad 1st impression of Shiva Rea ...

Certainly, by far though, my most go-to style (far different) is my own ... not taught anywhere (yet! I believe it's my legacy to my heirs. Not very cardio, even now ... that's a reason I switch off with actual cardio, which I like better anyhow. But my most favorite exercise - other than walking, is actually a belly dance class ...which figures emoticon )

The yoga sequence I practice 6 days a week, 5 in a guided self practice at a studio and one at home, leave me feeling energized and drained. I'm not sure how much cardio I get, but I know during the sequence of standing poses, keeping my breath working evenly is a challenge. You seem to have such great body awareness that I know whatever eclectic combination you find will work for you. I just don't think there is one yoga for everyone and I feel so fortunate to have found the one that works for me.

Lost 65 lbs and maintained since 2006.

As a woman who is on there in years, who medically can't do inversions anymore, and who needs cardio a LOT more than she needs yoga because of Diabetes Type 2 ... it strikes me about the differing orientations between old-school (or any school) aerobic dance and yoga.
Can you imagine if power yoga classes took from the "Jackie Sorensen lineage" ... and became all mild, Shiva Rea-inspired, (perhaps to YOU PURISTS) slightly insipid aerobics-infused - without CLEAR progression - classes. And yet was taught in an actual studio and not some crowded (even if upscale) gym?

Then there would be no backlash ...

And the yoga studio managers would not try to get to you take (3 classes a day if you want)

As my days of taking (dance-classes-only) come to an end at the more-yoga-centric The Nameless Studio, where all this controversy started - by the way - it strikes me as to WOW - okay the yoga classes I now take at Spencer -two blocks away, are similar carriage-trade prices ... but the forgiving expiration date on the class pack, the at-home cross-conditioning ability, and how forgiving the practice generally is; and even with the drawbacks (I'd gotten similar bursitis injury early on at my OTHER elbow, but it was much milder and went away in weeks not years) ... and yeah, I do keep running into him and his wife in the neighborhood ... and they want me the hell in class ...

works for ME!!
