Themed Interview with Mark Darby: Forwardfolding

So this season I decided to do some interviews themed around different aspects of the practice. The format is a chat about the subject and then a demo /workshop. In this interview I get to talk to Darby and I chose forwardfolding not only because a good few students struggle at least initially with these types of postures but also because he has an approach that is not necessarily the most common. Have a watch, have a go, and make your own decision.

  • Themed Interview with David Robson: Floating and Jumping (0) July 25, 2016 Whenever I think of spicing up the floating and jumping in my Ashtanga practice I think of David Robson.
