Another Successful Yin TT…and More to Come!

Thank you so much to all the yin yogis who came to the Level One Yin TT with open hearts and inquisitive minds.  Our time together always seems too short but I look forward to seeing some of you in the Level Two TT.  I have just ordered a Tensegrity teaching model, all-new myofascial meridian posters from Anatomy Trains Edition 3, and footage of fascia from the man himself, Tom Myers.  It’s been great to learn from Tom online via his many webinars and through his book Anatomy Trains.  But, in just a few short weeks, I’ll be sitting in […]

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 […]

When we release the fascia, can we free the mind?

I’m finishing 2013 with a Tom Myers Webinar entitled Issues in the Tissues – Releasing Emotional Holdings through Movement and Body Repatterning.  During 5 years of consistent Yin Yoga practice, I have gained some perspective on beliefs I have long held about myself – often expressed in the stories I tell myself and others.  And I love stories!   So, it’s easy for me to get really caught up in them.  This was starkly illustrated for me in my first Yin Yoga teacher training with Paul Grilley.  Although I am a competitive athlete, I have a fairly profound scoliotic curve […]

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 […]
