Ashtanga

Mary Taylor began studying yoga in 1971 while earning a degree in psychology at University, but it was not until 1988 when she traveled to Mysore, India for the first time to study Ashtanga yoga with K. Pattabhi Jois, and began a daily asana practice that yoga became a central thread informing all aspects of her life.

Mary is the co-founder, with her husband, Richard Freeman, and the director of the Yoga Workshop, in Boulder, Colorado. When not traveling and teaching elsewhere Mary teaches regularly at the Yoga Workshop. She is also on the faculty of the Upaya Zen Centers Being With Dying Program and has taught as part of the core teaching staff for the Urban Zen Integrative Therapy training program.

She brings to her teaching a deep respect for the healing and calming effects of yoga. Her classes are engaging and fun, focusing the flow of the breath, steady movement and the feeling of completeness and insight that can be cultivated through a consistent practice. Mary has authored three cookbooks and is the co-author of What Are You Hungry For? Women, Food and Spirituality (St. Martins).

Keeping your digestion healthy helps make any yoga practice stronger and more fun. In this class, work with a few poses and gentle breathing that can support good digestion. Begin with windshield wiping your legs for a sweet internal twist before engaging through your core with an emphasis on your exhales. Then, use all your props to relax into a supportive and stimulating opening for your belly and entire body. Props Needed: Two blocks, two blankets and a bolster.
Practice Focus: Digestion

Address tight shoulders and shoulder sensitivity within your practice (in particular during transitions between postures). Work to open your shoulder joint and tap into stable alignment that keeps the practice safe and strong. Demystify ways to make shoulder actions more comfortable through poses like chaturanga and puppy pose, keeping you out of the tendons of your joints and encouraging integrated actions of all rotator cuff muscles. Props Needed: A block and a strap.
Practice Focus: Shoulders

As your hips open, which is and should be a gradual process, all sorts of other poses become easily accessible. In particular, poses that include half and full lotus (like marichyasana B and D) are made safer and approachable. Emphasis is on breath techniques and sequences of movement that wake up your core to more easily open your hips.
Practice Focus: Hip Opener & Hips
