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 […]

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.

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."
