why acting & yoga?
When an actor prepares they must tap into their innermost truth. To do this you must be centered in your body, mind and spirit. Yoga taps you into all three of those things. Yoga relaxes you and facilitates the process of tuning into your authenticity both as an individual and as the character you are playing. Every “character” is YOU at the center. Yoga and acting are also similar in the way that they are not to be intellectualized but rather experienced. This revolutionary work sharpens your instincts, centers you and provides you with the ability to read human behavior, giving you a powerful tool for life. Up until now actors would take classes at two different places to study acting and yoga. Actasana is taking the leading-edge by marrying the two art forms. We are paving the way for the modern day actor because we believe that your art can change the world!
