Owning Space in Our Practices

Owning Space in Our Practices

February 5, 2015

  In the past week or so, I’ve been thinking a lot about space and how we occupy space. For example, to me, what it means to “advance” in someone’s practice is that she is gaining a greater sense of the way her body moves and the space she takes up. I think that generally, […]

YogaDork posted a great piece about a meditation study, which shows that practicing meditation for only a few months produces noticeable changes in the gray (grey?) matter of the brain.

Abby’s yoga class is the perfect way to wind down after a long week through a series of challenging but doable poses. It’s a chance to relax into poses and let gravity do the work for you while you gently stretch both body and mind. Abby is dedicated to her practice and to her students. She offers clear step-by-step instruction and offers enough modifications and options to satisfy all levels in every class. Best of all, she is approachable and doesn’t take herself too seriously. I would take yoga classes with her again in a heartbeat if only she weren’t 1,900 miles away.

She is one of those rare teachers who can help both the beginner and the advanced. Her teaching and spirit have touched my life and influenced my practice.

I was fortunate enough to have several private yoga sessions with Abby. Abby’s ability to explain poses and body alignment so clearly that even a physical klutz can understand makes her gentle yoga a pleasure.
