Fancy a challenge? How about Koundinyasana A!

Mark Robberds Koundinyasana A

Although this posture is in the Ashtanga Advanced A series I think it is reasonably doable if you have the hamstring length, strength, balance, focus, determination, and natural ability that is required 🙂 Joking apart I think it’s worth having a shot at as the flexibility constraints are really limited to hamstrings and thoracic rotation.

The Wonderful World of Fascia

Fascia Yoga anatomy book

This was so much fun to do and of course very topical at the moment coming shortly after the Fascial Research Congress. Joanne Avison is a yoga teacher and author of the book entitled Yoga Fascia Anatomy and Movement and I was lucky enough to be able to interview her when I was back in the UK. The interview runs at two and a half hours and we only realized it was time to stop because it was getting dark.

It was a great pleasure to do this interview with Maty. She is so full of enthusiasm and compassion it shines through everything she says. I remember the group at Purple Valley being so excited to be practicing with her and I think you will get a feel of why when you listen to this.

Interview with Yin Yoga Teacher Magdalena Mecweld

Serenity Yin Yoga book cover

I met this lovely lady recently at Purple Valley where she had come to practice Ashtanga. I am all for mixing styles and finding what suits your body so when I found out that Magdalena was a famous Yin teacher and bestselling author I was very keen to interview her. She is so relaxed and full of enthusiasm, that whatever she is doing definitely works for her and maybe will for you too 🙂

How the hell do you pull off that crazy posture Pungu Mayurasana?

Pungu Mayurasana

I remember seeing this image and thinking it looked like Mark was floating. And then I thought about how hard it is to do Mayurasana let alone to balance on one arm like that. So of course when I caught up with Mark in Goa recently I just had to find out how to do it. Knowing is one thing and doing is quite another. Good luck with this one 🙂

Kino MacGregor & Tim Feldmann Interview

Tim a Kino

Kino MacGregor and Tim Feldmann are both world renowned Ashtanga teachers in their own right but they also manage to find time to teach together as well. I focused this joint interview around them as a couple; how they approach teaching together, how their practices differ, do the like to practice together or seperately, who goes to who when they have a asana conundrum, that sort of thing.

Ok so it’s going to be a bit geeky but David always explains things in such an accessible way, and the more you know about the way your body works the better!
