The Bone of Contention - with Richard Rosen and Mary Paffard

For those of you who know Richard and Mary, you will know that they tease each other endlessly about this particular bone, the tailbone or the cocyx. And yet even though their teaching styles are complementary, their approach to posture differs in some interesting ways and many times this is reflected through their instructions to this dear little bone - called the “little bone of happiness/ el huesito de alegria” in Cuba.

Starfish Yoga - Moving from Core to Extremity

Starfish Yoga - Moving from Core to Extremity

For most of us, the core is a place of confusion, an area of our body which we either neglect or overly control and this practice will bring awareness and vitality to an under-respected and highly intelligent matrix from which all movement can arise.  By exploring popular standing poses like tricky trikonasana! from the starfish perspective, we can support our hips and sacral area and find freedom and ease in the upper body.  This will in turn help support the shoulder area in backbends, inversions and twists.    Join us for a full day of practice and investigation!
