Mary Taylor


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).

Explore movements that reveal an expansive, even liberating feeling as you practice backbends from simple upward dog to more advanced poses such as eka pada rajakapotasana (one-legged king pigeon). Working intelligently on the wave of your breath, find the edge of sensation that keeps you safe and strong. Simplify backbends by exploring them as movements that incorporate your shoulders, spine, pelvic floor, quads and hamstrings. Work these muscle groups in a flowing form for deeply satisfying backbends. Props Needed: A block and a strap.
Practice Focus: Backbends

Explore relaxing, yet precise postures and movements that encourage relaxation in the midst of your busy life. Work methodically on different areas of your body to find the edge of awareness and dissolve into any sensations that arise. Each pose can be practiced separately to reduce stress if a free moment arises. Or better yet, if you practice all of them together, you can fully relax and feel renewed, head to toe.
