Mr Wizard and The Fancy Leg, by Theresa Elliott

Post #7 in The Elliott Lexicon of Satisfactory Yoga Terminology Totoor Turtle was a character in an old cartoon from the 60’s. He was ambitious and often got into trouble. When in need of help he cried “Help, Mr Wizard!” and a ponce-nez be-speckled anthropomorphized lizard would appear.  Funny a turtle would ask a lizard […]

Death by Yoga Not Okay and the Sensation Continuum, by Theresa Elliott

Post #6 in The Elliott Lexicon of Satisfactory Yoga Terminology Sadly, when the phrase “Death by Yoga Not Okay” occurred to me some 25 years ago, I didn’t rush right out and buy the URL. In my defense I didn’t know there were URL’s to buy, but about five years ago it crossed my mind […]

Wide Brain and Poodles, by Theresa Elliott

Post #3 in The Elliott Lexicon of Satisfactory Yoga Terminology A few years back, while teaching my ongoing master class at the Taj, I was talking about Wide Brain, a reference to a state of mind. I mentioned it’s fairly easy to tell if someone is in Wide Brain as they look like they just […]

The Unicorn, by Theresa Elliott

Post #2 in The Elliott Lexicon of Satisfactory Yoga Terminology This is quite contradictory to how I operate, but I found the Unicorn while teaching with a hangover.

The Elephant Grave Yard, by Theresa Elliott

Post #1 in The Elliott Lexicon of Satisfactory Yoga Terminology Words have always been difficult for me. When I was a kid, my parents thought something was wrong because I played alone in my room. Never mind having four siblings I could interact with.  I liked being alone and spoke little. I have joked for years […]

TAJ YOGA CLASSES

Taj Yoga is part of a thriving movement community located within the old Crown Hill Elementary School building. In a joyous "crossover," the yoga teacher is taking class down the hall with the Wassa Dance teacher, the ballet kids want to take yoga, and the custodian is studying Flamenco!.

GREG B.- "You are perhaps my favorite teacher of anything that I have learned. It's been an experience of and for a lifetime. Thank you."
