Mid-August Teacher/Staff Feature: Cemile Marsan

Doing Workstudy at O2 Since: 2012 Cemile’s Thoughts on Koundinyasana: “It looks so fancy! I admit it was a ‘dream pose’ for me for a long time. I actually remember the first time I managed to this pose (in the Somerville studio) — I guess my surprise and suspicion of whether I had actually successfully managed it was obvious because the instructor commented on the confused yet enthusiastic face I had. Last year (I believe it was also when Koundinyasana was pose of the month), I had the exact experience but in the...

August Teacher Feature: Devon Wilson-Hill

Teaching at O2 Since: 2008 Devon’s Thoughts on Koundinyasana Month: “I remember watching a student do this pose when I was just beginning my practice. It looked so fun! At this point, I couldn’t do Half Moon. But in a year, I could do Koundinyasana.  Revolved Triangle is another of my favorite poses. So is Fallen Warrior or ‘Hippie Warrior’ as Mimi calls it. You could say I’m all about IT band hip stretches. And Koundinyasana is all of that in the air! Taking off! Totally awe inspiring.” Devon’s...

Mid-July Teacher Feature: Eliza Wilson

Teaching at O2 Since: 2015 Eliza’s Thoughts on Props Month: “This month is one of my favorites. O2 does a great job of regularly incorporating props even when they’re not the focus of the month. But this month gives ‘permission’ to experiment with props where normally you might not take advantage of them. As a teacher, it reminds me to be specific and clear about the purpose and positioning of any prop we’re using – what is it accomplishing? How does a student know if they might want to incorporate a prop?”...

July Teacher Feature: Carol Ciaravino

Teaching at O2 Since: 2007 Carol’s Thoughts on Props Month: “I find props to be very useful in several ways. The props we generally use are blocks, a strap, the wall, and occasionally a partner. They can facilitate proper alignment. For example, block under your hand in ardha chandrasana. They also can provide support or a reference point that allow you to enter a deeper version of a pose and build strength for the full pose. For example, half-handstand on the wall. I sometimes observe that more experienced students will avoid...

Mid-June Teacher Feature: Paulina Haduong

Teaching at O2 Since: January 2016 Paulina’s Thoughts on Half Moon: “I love half moon!  I love how open it is, and I love how the pose can be modified or varied in so many different ways.  Half moon feels different in every class, depending on my strength, focus, or balance that day — it’s a great way to check in with my body.” Paulina’s Current Teaching Schedule: SOMERVILLE 8:30am Mondays – Basics CAMBRIDGE 11am Sundays – Intermediate Paulina started doing yoga back when she was in high school...

June 2017 Teacher Feature: Ann Panopoulos

Teaching at O2 Since: 2007 Ann’s Thoughts on Half Moon: “I love half moon! It’s the mother of all poses for me, strengthening thighs, ankles, core, and glutes while opening chest, shoulders, hamstrings, and the muscles around the pelvis.  Not to mention there are many fun variations to play with…” Ann’s Current Teaching Schedule: SOMERVILLE 7pm Mondays – Power CAMBRIDGE 7pm Tuesdays – Intermediate 6:30pm Fridays – Rajas Hour   Of the lot of us, Ann is the hippie spirit in our midst....
