Todd Norian Interview | Yoga NOW Show
There are tens of millions of yoga students in the US and a great many more around the world. Spending any amount of time in a yoga class, it’s easy to observe there are many different ability levels, needs, and goals of the practitioners. So, it’s no wonder there are a variety of yoga styles or systems available from which a student may choose. Recently, Yoga NOW had the pleasure of talking with Todd Norian, the founder of Ashaya Yoga. During the discussion, Todd agreed to give us a demonstration of one of the techniques to improve lower back health.
Todd’s entry into yoga was born out of coincidence. He was on his way to a career as a jazz musician when he stepped into a yoga class and never looked back. But that’s not the end of it! Enjoy the preview of the Yoga NOW show with our host Jane Lanza and the amazing Todd Norian.

Here’s a question for you. What do you get when you combine yoga, science, art, and bio-mechanics? The answer; you get one great yoga system with amazing health benefits. You guessed it; Todd Norian’s special brand of yoga, called Ashaya Yoga, uses the science of body mechanics artfully applied to the specific needs of the individual. Watch as Todd demonstrates a technique for lower back improvement on our model, Jackie.
