What to expect in Cobey’s Classes: Cobey’s playful and approachable style allows him to take his students further than they imagined they could go. He believes that when the mind is rigid, so is the body. But when the body is supple, the mind can be free. His mentor used to tell him that, “You must know the rules in order to break the rules.” Therefore he takes great care in alignment, but is also able to throw away preconceived notions if it isn’t serving a student’s body. Afterall, one size does not fit all. Cobey also pays tremendous attention to breath, and how it can, and should, shape our minds as well as our poses and our movements. Expect a strong, challenging, and liberating class. And one that is a lot less serious than this bio sounds.
