    Actually enjoyed the frog thanks to your incredible cues! Your comment to Huda right at the bottom of this thread also extremely useful - somehow that had passed me by until now...
  • Jaz P     May 8th, 2013
    My pelvis and I are very grateful! Bless you for you wonderful ways Tara. Namaste xo
  • JUN LEE     Jan 22nd, 2013
    Deepest gratitude Tara~~
  • Felicia Holtz     Jan 13th, 2013
    I revisited this class because I had an achy low back- pure heaven!I loved this series first time around, but I think I will revisit all of it. Deepest gratitude Tara!
  • Missy Petty     Nov 24th, 2012
    Thank you for this enlightenment of the mobility of the pelvis and how the femurs and pelvis work together! Completely new experience for me in pigeon pose, and my hips are grateful.
    • Tara Judelle     Jan 6th, 2013
      Missy, Great to hear. Once you see the architecture of your pelvis in such specifics- it forever changes the relationship!
  • Aparajita Ghose     Oct 3rd, 2012
    Thank You! Wonderful class. For years the action of moving my thighbones back have been a challenge. Your masterful guiding into the inner sanctum of the thighbones opened up a juicy feeling of flow and movement, free from the restriction. Even dreamt that night of practicing of one of my kidney, it was transparent gel-like but very vivid visual:)...
    thank you for the magic of the journey into our inner spaces, much gratitude
    • Tara Judelle     Oct 3rd, 2012
      Aparajita,
      Thank you for that amazing reflection and insight. I love the softness of the organ body and the way that once awakened- it will keep giving back to you, like being blind and then seeing- the organ consciousness suddenly alerts you to a whole new world inside!

    Thank you so much, Tara! All weekend I took care of a middle aged patient who's struggled with rheumatoid arthritis since childhood. She has contractures from that and possibly a connective tissue disorder and wants so badly to have her mobility back. This practice today was so inspiring for me; my intention is for healing for her and blessings for you. We're so lucky to have the body structure and ability that we do and it's wonderful that you help so many people get in touch with that and appreciate it.
    • Tara Judelle     Aug 27th, 2012
      Denise, clearly you are helping people! Yes- I cannot take this structure for granted, no more than I can the integrity of the house that holds me as I live inside it. To have freedom in this body is such a gift, and one that is often realized too late, when we have lost the freedom. What great work you are doing. So much love to you on your journey, and to your patient! T

    I have participated in the all three classes and look forward to completing the remainder of the series. I feel I have learned much about the practice and my body...and yet, I am going to retake the same classes over again because I know there is much more to take from the class...wonderful...lots of my questions have been answered. Thank you.
    • Tara Judelle     Jun 21st, 2012
      Susana, you just made my day!!!!! These classes are meant to be dense, add water and they will grow. Please let me know how you experience things differently. All in in process.
  • Veronika Karac     Jun 8th, 2012
    Really inspiring class! thank you.
  • mara melloni     May 27th, 2012
    Amazing! Thanks Tara
  • Taryn Hughes     May 13th, 2012
    If my left hip could write you a love letter, it would. So many physical "ah ha" moments, particularly in regards to the trochantor. Thank you.
    • Tara Judelle     May 20th, 2012
      Taryn, I can't tell you how much it makes me smile to invent a love letter from your left hip. I LIVE for the "ah ha" moments. Thank you for sharing.
  • yogagal      Apr 5th, 2012
    doing this class again. Beginning in sukasana/seated, "feel your sitting bones 2 corners of pubis". In order for me to have pubis connect to floor, pelvis goes into great anterior tilt, more than 30I think? When I allow my seated foundation to sink more, I get closer to pubic bone contact. insight if/when you can. Loved
    • Tara Judelle     May 20th, 2012
      I agree. It's taken me a while to reply. I believe what I meant was to become aware of the four corners of your pelvis, and connect your sit bones to the floor.
      Yogagal, thank you always for your intense studentship and clarifications!
  • Tara Judelle     Apr 1st, 2012
    Laura Flora- you are so awesome! Was just taking Nia classes at the Bali Spirit festival and playing a lot with inner spirals of the body (not the inner spiral of Anusara) but the idea of energy spiraling internally, and realized there are infinity loops in all directions, in the heart, lateral, vertical...torus and infinity symbols. Yes- Amazing body. Your request is my command. Organ body redux. Soon.
  • Laura Jarrait     Apr 1st, 2012
    Loved this, Tara, so grounded and light afterwards, plus lots of creative ideas got flowing. At one point you made comment of in opening the hips people were locking the jaw. In BodyTalk (and other systems no doubt) head and pelvis are considered mirrors of each other with mouth and genitals related, so makes perfect sense. Also, you mentioned infinity sign a few times...I ended up playing with that in the knee class - up the calf, patella, quads, down the hamstring across back of knee, front of shin. I called it the "loop of infinite care" based on a poem by Bhogar - "Time was I despised the body, but then I saw the God within. The body, I realized, is the Lord's temple, and I began preserving it with care infinite." Love what you're doing here, keep it up!! Will you reprise the organ body next? Cheers, Laura Flora
  • Lucinda Pimlott     Mar 28th, 2012
    Thanks, am loving this exploration of the body.
  • Tara Judelle     Mar 10th, 2012
    Sharon, Excellent- you are as big an anatomy geek as me, and I mean that as the highest of compliments!
  • Sharon Frost     Mar 10th, 2012
    I'm really enjoying the anatomy classes. It's fun to have Biel's Trail Guide open beside my mat, so I can trace the pathways and landmarks. I'll bring out Netter next time through. I'm sure I'll be repeating these classes a number of times.
  • Ann Constantino     Mar 6th, 2012
    Wonderful class. Felt new things in the hip sockets. Love the series. Thank you!
  • maggie kaplan     Mar 4th, 2012
    Great class! Thx!
  • yogagal      Mar 3rd, 2012
    fyi I got a dvd from esther myers studio in toronto of vanda and 1 from diane long long time student who comes to texas about once a year for weekend workshop, personally never met her, but what her body could do in her 80's is what inspired me.
  • yogagal      Mar 2nd, 2012
    I love Tony, is he available?
  • yogagal      Mar 2nd, 2012
    I'm 29 too, I've been around the yoga world when there was only 1 no 2 studios in L.A. now, wow. Thanks finishing up on this, love it, keep going in this direction, love mixing fluidity w/refinement of actions.
  • Tara Judelle     Mar 2nd, 2012
    Thank you yogagal- love Vanda Scaravelli- though I never had a chance to study with her. XOXO
  • yogagal      Mar 2nd, 2012
    Had to pause, as I'm here shaking my head YES when you said Vira II is the biggest hip opener, it is when it's done with intention, don't need any of the more "advanced" hip opening poses, just do Vira II, this way. Also this class is reminding me a little of Vanda Scaravelli, she did this fluid type movement, with following the wave of the breath. "Movement is the song of the body" v.s (1908 - 1991) one of my biggest inspirations
  • Tara Judelle     Mar 2nd, 2012
    Laurie, Thank you for your continued interest in the exploration of the body. It will so so so pay off in the long run.
    Huda- try more muscle engagement as you perform the actions, so that you can retain the bone placement.
  • YogaGlo     Mar 1st, 2012
    Diana - we just emailed you some tips to help with the streaming on your end.
  • diana komejan     Mar 1st, 2012
    oh no it froze at1:14
  • laurie greenberg     Mar 1st, 2012
    Thank you Tara,

    I am enjoying the series and moving beyond my edge with a softness thanks to your explicit instruction. To focus strictly on the moving deeper while pulsing in a pose is a practice in itself...meditation in motion.
  • Holly Rogers     Mar 1st, 2012
    I enjoyed this class, thank you.

    Holly
  • Nancy Dales     Mar 1st, 2012
    I'm enjoying your series very much, Tara. You make practice so fun how you keep us engaged with our anatomy in movement as we transition form one pose to another, as well as in each pose. Thank you!
  • Huda Mussa     Mar 1st, 2012
    Thanks for the good class. Lots of joint popping. The problem I have is how to keep my thighbones back when scooping the tailbone. I have the tendency to exaggerate my movements.
