Roots: Core, Hips, Legs, and Feet
The core has become a buzzword in yoga classes
and for good reason. The abdominal core is made of muscles
that attach to and stabilize the spine, so it’s
important that these muscles be toned. Sometimes though,
the core is misunderstood. Muscles are engaged harshly
or peripheral muscles are overused causing the true
core to be inhibited. Barbara will help you identify
the core and strategize how to use yoga to establish
a strong and fluid core and a sense of having your feet
firmly on the ground.

Barbara welcomes back the venerable Richard Freeman
to the Boston area. Richard is one of the world’s
leading teachers of yoga. He began the practice of yoga
asana and meditation in 1968 and subsequently found
an integrative vision in the teachings of the late Sri
K. Pattabhi Jois. A master of Astanga Yoga, Richard’s
teaching style is unique in that it continuously restructures
and reframes the biomechanical and perceptual forms
of the asana and movement in the context of a profound
understanding of yoga philosophy, all laden with humor
and compassion. Richard spent nearly nine years in Asia
studying various traditions that he incorporates into
the Astanga yoga practice.

gracefully and effortlessly in and out of poses, it is essential to stay vibrant
and grounded in the breathing. This class will be based on a study
of the essential and elusive activity of Mulabandha
and the strong grounding effect of correct ujjayi pranayama. The
actual Mulabandha is a conjunction of complimentary
movement patterns which open the central axis of the
body right up through the root of the palate. We
will flow seamlessly through these movement patterns,
following the thread of the central axis.
