LEARNING & TEACHING
Translations and Transformations form the TWO main modes of learning and teaching. Translations encourage and maintain the transformational difficulties you will need to encounter in learning Yoga and therefore yourself. From coaching to asanas classes, these are Yoga’s main areas of focus:
- The Relationship to Silence
- The Relationship to Compassion
- The Relationship to Action
- The Relationship to Mind

CHECK OUR ASANAS SECTION for in-depth descriptions of how to do individual poses.
Place bottom leg under top leg, not under sitbones. Place top leg's foot to one side of leg or another (shown is easier) The closer the top foot is to the hips, the more difficult this pose will be.
Place back hand behind the body, on the ground, or behind back (shown). Please front hand around top leg's knee, or (easier) simply place the elbow against the knee as shown.
Twist the body, just above the hips. It is possible to teach around the front knee and pull it in toward you also with the from hand, to get a better stretch on the piriformis muscles of the buttocks.
