Tone in the Tush, by Theresa Elliott

Post #4 in The Elliott Lexicon of Satisfactory Yoga Terminology Back in the day, bloomers were all the rage in yoga class.  It was an East Indian aesthetic that had a certain old-world charm. You often saw bloomers in Iyengar classes on both men and women. They were very modest, made of cotton with elastic […]

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. I don’t think of awareness as a byproduct of alcohol, and for years would not practice, much less teach, if I had had anything to drink the […]

Choosing a Yoga Teacher, by Theresa Elliott

Originally published July 2008 Yoga has exploded in Seattle as in much of the country.  For every coffee stand, there is at least one yoga studio lurking nearby.  With so many places offering yoga, how do you decide who would be the best teacher for you? I have encountered many individuals whose primary consideration is […]

Avoiding Repetitive Stress Injuries in Yoga, by Theresa Elliott

Originally published, February 2008 In 1999 I seriously injured my sacroiliac.  I had been practicing yoga for 13 years and given my strength, flexibility and ability to do “big poses,”  I wondered how I could have hurt myself doing something so mundane as picking up my 3 year old daughter.  Granted, I did the thing […]

Taking the “Buzz” Out of Words, by Theresa Elliott

Originally published November, ’04 “Ohmygod, is that what I’m supposed to do? Is this what people expect me to teach?” “I am SO mundane!” This is a reaction I had just last week after reading a workshop description that went something like this: “Learn to raise the prana of the hara to awaken and open […]

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."
