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).

It is far too common to carry around stress in your shoulders, neck and jaw in the face of everyday life. Tension in these areas of the body can result not only in stiffness, but also contribute to perceiving the world through stressful eyes. By loosening, lengthening and releasing your upper body, you can relieve the fatigue and difficulties you may be carrying around with you. Remember to have fun with your practice in the mean time! Props Needed: A block. Props Suggested: A blanket.
Practice Focus: Neck
