Let’s Twist Again…

It’s all the minute, subtle activations and bandha that make the difference in most yoga poses. This is what turns a posture that may look “easy” or feel relatively simple into something reasonably dynamic and deliciously intense.

What Do You Prefer In a Group Class?

Over the past 20 or so years of actually teaching and continuing to learn, what I teach now, has been pared back considerably, but, yet, I know it’s actually way more useful for the most amount of people.

Trikonasana – “Triangle” pose. It’s so easy to miss instructions, we can tend to switch off and do what we’ve always done, the way that we’ve always done it. But, although most people who begin Yoga, hope to feel better in their physical body, many end up feeling worse. It’s simple techniques and tweaks that […]
