Unfortunately this is true to most fitness "classes". Teacher focused form of entertainment or doing what one is "expected" to, rather than student focused learning process... I'll stop here before it will turn to a full rant.To elaborate on yoga, a drawback of the way it is often taught is the frequent change of sequencing. Each teacher has a style, and they tend not to do the same thing all the time. This keeps the student’s focus on the teacher, wondering what’s next, instead of focusing inward on what’s happening in their body and mind. It’s almost like a form of entertainment.
And to the OP. I do OS for over two years with great results. I also do some club swings. My body and mind are strong and loose. I think you got some great advice in this thread, and as @vegpedlr suggested, pick a system, learn it and follow it as it is designed. Don't mix and match even if the only reason is giving your mind a break.
