Full Expression: What is it Really, in the Context of Yoga?

posted by Charlotte Bell on March 17, 2014 |

Full Expression in Supta Padanghustasana?What is Full Expression in the Context of Yoga? Have you ever heard a yoga teacher invite you to take a pose to full expression? What comes to mind when you hear this? I’d wager that for most of us, we picture the most extreme expression of flexibility—one that we might see on Instagram or on the covers of yoga magazines.

What Your Savasana Can Tell You

posted by Charlotte Bell on February 18, 2014 |

savasanaWhat Your Savasana Can Tell You I’ve heard it many times, and said it many times: “Savasana is the most important pose. All the other poses we do in our asana practice prepare us for Savasana.” For most students of yoga, this is good news. For most, Savasana is a welcome respite, a chance to unwind the body and simply be. Savasana provides a window into formlessness, into universal vastness
