2021 Teaching Schedule

Abbreviated HALF PRIMARY SERIES with Joanna & Sarah

Utilizing Props and mindful Modification 
Friday, July 23, 6am PST (7am MST, 9am EST)

Modifications are the magical secret of every serious asana lover. They know it is imperative that we open our minds to ways of studying our bodies in asana that allow all body types, abilities, and circumstances the chance to dive deeply into a study of movement. The mindful exploration of foundation and alignment through mindful modifications or prop use, gives an average asana shape the opportunity to blossom into its fullest potential and opens the door to those who might otherwise have been unable. This type of study and practice can help us create a carefully crafted arsenal of practice tools to be used as life’s unpredictable ebbs and flows hit us.

Friday, July 23, I will be in Reno, NV with the amazing Sarah Durney Hatcher for a special online class: Abbreviated Half Primary: How to Utilize Props and Mindfully Modify. This class is open to everyone and is meant to illustrate ways in which to approach your practice for any number of changing circumstances.

If we were to say that the subject of modification and or prop use in the practice of Ashtanga yoga has been frowned upon for decades, it would be a severe understatement!  

In the end, your practice belongs to you, it is meant to nourish your body, your mind, and your inner world. We are not all built the same, we do not all function the same, and we don’t want to because we are all unique! Your individual self may need a little something extra (ie. a prop or a modification) to help you tap into the actual essence of an asana. This does not mean you’re no longer practicing Ashtanga or you are in some way deficient, it means you sincerely care about your body.

YOU are the practitioner who studies your body; mining for skeletal alignment, lightness, and taking active and bold steps toward unlocking your own unique self.
