And while it started...

Mid-December Teacher Feature: Jill Rodgers

Teaching at O2 Since: 2016 Jill’s Thoughts on Parivrtta Galavasana: “Boeuf. This posture eludes me, personally, so it there is an added challenge in teaching it. I can’t rely on my own experience on how to land the full expression of the posture. But I do like all the elements required: opening of the outer hip, deep twisting, balance, strong and even breath, and the trust in yourself required for all arm balances.”   Jill’s Current Teaching Schedule: Somerville 6pm Thursdays – Intermediate Cambridge...

Mid-November Teacher Feature: Jemila Kester

Teaching at O2 Since: 2015 Jemila’s Thoughts on Eka Pada Raja Kapotasana: “One time at my old studio in NYC I tried to keep up with the lady next to me, and we got pretty deep in the weeds on this pose, and I felt a snap-pop-pinch in my low back (which is bad) and realized I was letting my ego guide me, so I backed out. From child’s pose, I peeked over to see what other amazing feats this woman could perform. And that’s when I saw the lady was Trinity from The Matrix. Yes, that Trinity, from that Matrix. The one with...

For months now, I have been staying open to the possibility of finding a way to integrate many of...
