Al Bingham has been teaching yoga since 1995 and leading Encourage, a studio focused on the needs of practitioners transitioning through midlife, since 2013. Al has co-authored two books on yoga published by Random House and develops programs for yoga studios, clinical settings and corporate environments. Al’s PostureTweak orientation to asana is a joint-friendly, holistic approach for people in their 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and beyond, which perfectly blends with the breath-aligned and pranic-aware principles of Vishoka Meditation.
Al is grateful for how his study with meditation-oriented teachers throughout his learning journey prepared him to recognize and embrace the depth and breadth of the Vishoka Meditation teachings offered by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait and the Himalayan Institute. His gratitude for this wisdom tradition is reflected in the care with which he stewards these teachings as a Certified Vishoka Meditation Teacher.
