Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor: Square One, Touching Earth

We will play with the subtlety of uddiyana-mulabandha, so that the legs and the feet connect to the earth, and the coccyx and kidneys become the sofa of patanjali.
Ashtanga Vinyasa is then a continuous alignment, manifesting in a natural movement into and out of the central axis. Co-taught with Mary Taylor.

3:30pm - 5:30pm

Inversions, Pranayama, and Letting Go

The Shoulder Stand and Headstand families of postures are keys to a balanced and grounded asana practice and they are precursors to other forms of contemplative practice as well.
In this class we will experience how these poses can evolve organically and how the palate plays the vital role as it opens the central axis of the body.

About Richard Freeman

Richard Freeman has been a student of yoga since 1968. He has spent nearly nine years in Asia studying various traditions which he incorporates into the Ashtanga yoga practice as taught by his principal teacher, K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India. Richard’s background includes studying Sufism in Iran, Zen and Vipassana Buddhist practice, Bhakti and traditional Hatha yoga in India. Starting in 1974 he also began an in-depth study of Iyengar yoga, which eventually led him to Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. Richard is an avid student of both Western and Eastern philosophy, as well as Sanskrit. His ability to juxtapose various viewpoints, without losing the depth and integrity of each, has helped him develop a unique, metaphorical teaching style.
