Richard Freeman: Asana-Poet and Embodied Philosopher

It is my position that the great, traditional asana sequences are like the epic poems of Homer, Hesiod, Virgil and Ovid. Richard Freeman is a voice uniquely situated to interpret the various Ashtanga Vinyasa series, often by breaking them into sonnets and haikus in order to reveal hidden structure and meaning. Richard’s 60- or 90-minute classes might focus on, say, the first third of second series “Nadi Shodhana” or the last third of primary series “Yoga Chikitsa”. As students, we are blessed by the opportunity to read these gigantic works of physical poetry through the lenses of a master teacher. Read More…

Ask More of Yourself: Practice with Kino MacGregor

Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 2.23.58 PMI was super excited about the weekend workshop with Kino MacGregor. As a true yoga nerd, I had been following her since well before Instagram was even a thing. Based on the bright colors and huge smiles on her social media, you might expect a yummy yoga workshop -- unicorns and candy canes and rainbows. Kino is not here to take us on an amusement park ride. She is very serious about yoga.

Kino’s personality was certainly bubbly, with a wide smile that so often shines out from her frequent Instagram posts, and a friendly and funny demeanor. However, she has received a lot of unfortunate negative attention for her appearance and clothing style, so based on media criticisms, it might be easy to dismiss her as a frivolous person. Yet, Kino quickly put to rest any question of authenticity by demonstrating a deep and profound knowledge of and commitment to the practice of Ashtanga yoga. She was a devoted student of Guruji, dedicated to his memory; following his guidelines for Ashtanga yoga is her path. Her clear-eyed focus on this path drives her disciplined nature and progress through the series of Ashtanga. Read More…

Real Yoga

Yoga Class-3247by Michele Vinbury

Morning Practice.  I step onto the smooth, familiar coolness of my mat.  The pre-dawn yellow of a street light spills across the floor.  I yawn and spread toes, feeling my feet ground into the well-worn grooves scuffed through the mat’s surface.  My body, at first stiff, begins to sense and then move with the fluid streams of breath that glide in and pour out.

Inhale.  Honey sweet, the breath enters, expands and unfurls.

Exhale.  All effort undone as the breath slowly recedes and then fades away.

Inhale.  Opening. Receiving.

Exhale.  Surrendering.  Releasing. Read More…

Yoga Teacher Training, a Vehicle for Change

teacherbiopicresized-5When I entered yoga teacher training in Atlanta, Georgia, in 2005, I wasn’t ready. My practice was okay, but not especially great. I leapt without looking, as was (and still sometimes is) my inclination. Before teacher training, I enrolled in an advertising portfolio school full-time while working at the District Attorney’s office. Busyness kept me from really taking a look at myself. I left the DA’s office to work in advertising, and despised my job from day one. Hives broke out all over my neck, and my appetite went away, both firsts for me. Lasting just a month before quitting and going back to my old job, I was humbled, disappointed, and confused. When a teacher I greatly respected encouraged me towards teacher training, I was blown away. Well, my ego really liked it, that I know. So, I went for it, not really thinking about why I wanted it.
