Technique Pointers for Marichyasana D

06 Febuary 2015: Interviewee: Peg Mulqueen From what I have seen Peg Mulqueen spends much of her time studying with great teachers and that is good news for us because she has a wonderful talent for assimilating what she has learnt and passing that on to the rest of us in her own easy to understand style. She seems to...

Kapotasana in 3 (not-so) easy steps

Asana Quick Fix: 30 January 2015: Kapotasana in 3 (not-so) easy steps Step One from David Garrigues: It’s something I’ve written here before about – the lift UP. It was David G. who first taught me to raise my arms to lift me UP and out of my pelvis while rooting down through my legs. Many of us dump into...

A Team Body Approach

Asana Quick Fix: 13 December 2014: A Team Body Approach If you’ve never experienced low back pain, consider yourself lucky. (And then, knock on wood.) You see, around 75% of the adult population HAS – and I’m not talking about those who practice yoga. It’s a “thing” and not a yoga “thing.” It comes up in yoga a lot, though....

A Pointer for Better Posture(s)

Asana Quick Fix: 16 November 2014: A Pointer for Better Posture(s) I spend anywhere between 4 to 5 hours sitting in front of a computer … an hour or two, behind the wheel of a car .. and admittedly, an hour or so watching a movie or TV. That adds up to about 8 hours of a seated posture, head...

Chaturanga

Asana Quick Fix: 23 July 2014: Chaturanga About six months ago, the studio where I teach put out an all-call for teachers to submit their own chaturanga “selfies.” Yeah, not one of us responded. Seriously, who wants that posture picked apart on Facebook by a bunch of arm chair anatomy experts in a slew of unending cues as comments …...

Growing Up In Backbends

Asana Quick Fix: 16 September 2014:Growing Up In Backbends I remember as a kid, helping my slightly OCD mom ready our bedsheets to be folded.

Head Up!

Asana Quick Fix: 10 July 2014: Head Up! The arm balances of third series really take all I have in terms of upper body strength – and all I have is often, still not enough. Jen René asked her teacher, Tim Miller, for advice last week. “Use your head,” he told her. When she relayed his message, I giggled at...

The Hips A-line-ment

By Peg Mulqueen If there’s a holy grail in the Ashtanga yoga practice, it must a long central axis (or spine, for reference) and rooted pelvis, for within the two lie the keys to heaven – or as we say, bandhas. And so it seems logical we do all we can to protect and keep these lines sacred. The primary...

Resisting the Bend: Kapotasana

By Peg Mulqueen This was my deal breaker. Everyone has one, and this was mine. I knew this one posture would demand from me more commitment, patience, tenacity and loving kindness than any other I’d ever encountered. It requires me to be fully present, super aware – and willing. So lets just say, we’ve spent some time together and had...
