Start with the feet to learn yoga. Use certain areas of the feet to access other points in the body. That study, called marma therapy, is one I relish.
I’m teaching a class called Yoga for the Joints. Its held Wednesday mornings at West End Yoga Studio (221 West Walnut Street, Lancaster). For now, it will happen at 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. every other week:
We began these sequences by finding points of energy flow via the hands and feet. The heels govern stability and the mounds of the toes encourage flexibility. Following these principles we apply them to poses. Each time, we review.
October 12. Soon we move on to those all – important, delicate, troublesome, but amazing joints: Your Knees. There’s a lot to cover, including a trip past the shins, the calfs, on our way to the next class:
Hips on October 26.
Soon thereafter: Connections to the torso….
And on we go to shoulders, the cervical spine, the skull, the third eye, and the sky is the limit.
