The Anatomy of Growth

Before I left the U.S. over four years ago, I picked up Leslie Kaminoff’s best-selling book The Anatomy of Yoga.  I was preparing to make two major transitions.  The first was moving to Melbourne, Australia.  The second was to leave behind a decade of work as a documentary filmmaker to become a full-time yoga instructor.   I invested in a pile of books intended to really focus me on teaching yoga, some of which remain unread!  But The Anatomy of Yoga is compact, well-illustrated, and practical and I enjoy the way Leslie writes. I was particularly captivated by his description of the […]

First Level Two Yin TT

I am lucky that it’s my job to hang out with such amazing women!  This is the crew from my first Yin Level Two Teacher Training, hosted by Grass Roots Yoga in St Kilda.   We spent a weekend learning sequencing techniques based on Tom Myer’s myofascial meridians and the meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine.  With all that creative energy in one room, inspiration abounds. Level One and Level Two graduate Amy Joy Barber shared, “I always come away with lots of notes and deep insights.” If you missed out this time, join me later in the year for Level […]

Tom Myers is coming to Melbourne…

The bad news is that I only learned that Tom Myers is coming to Melbourne a week ago.  And he’s coming in March, which I’ve already  WAY over-scheduled.  But, because you cannot let amazing opportunities pass you by, I am attending his 3-day Anatomy Trains workshop in Melbourne March 26-28.  It will be especially fascinating because this training is oriented towards body workers rather than yoga teachers.  So, I get to play in a different sandbox!  I’ll learn body reading using the Anatomy Trains myofascial meridians and get some experience with hands-on body work.  I am still kind of in […]

I’m kind of obsessed with Tom Myers

Since reading Tom Myers revolutionary “Anatomy Trains”, I’m admittedly a little obsessed with the guy.  Together with Paul Grilley, he completely changed the way I think about the body and increasingly influences how I sequence my yoga classes.  But I know that reading big books on anatomy is not everyone’s thing.  Or even reading big books period.  So, if you are even a little bit curious about Myers (or sick of being in my classes and wondering, “Why is she always going on about train tracks in my body?”) now you can find him on YogaU in bite size, digestible […]
