A Yoga First

On Saturday,  I attended a workshop in Austin, Texas with  Christina Sell and Amy Ippoliti, two outstanding certified Anusara Yoga teachers.  Amy is featured on this month's cover of Yoga Journal.

The theme of the workshop was "Radical Self Esteem".  The theme was based on the ancient teachings of the malas (cloaks/coverings that prevent us from seeing and experiencing our Best Self).  Christina and Amy brought this ancient teaching to life as they weaved it into class as we were skillfully guided through a flow of backbends.

During the workshop, I reached both hands to my foot in Eka Pada Raja Kapotasana (one legged King Pigeon)  for the first time - check it out!

Enjoy.
