The Edges of the Feet
with Vicki Robinson, GCFP® Guild Certified Feldenkrais Practitioner, SEP® -Somatic Experiencing Practitioner
Saturday, May 13th, 12:00 – 3:00pm
This experiential Feldenkrais workshop is oriented to give you a renewed sense of how you contact the ground. With 28 bones in each foot as well as 3 arches, we are continuously renegotiating these structures to adapt to different surfaces, as well as adjusting the bones that stack on top. No wonder we have issues with balance, as well as feet and ankle issues!
Workshop will include 3 movement lessons to help clarify how you move through the feet. Great information if you’ve experienced any issues with plantar fasciitis, pronation or supination problems or balance issues, as well as for those who simply want to improve the quality of their movement.
Guest instructor Vicki Robinson is a Guild Certified Feldenkrais practitioner® in Seattle, Washington. She’s been teaching group classes, workshops and individual lessons since 2000. Her clients have a wide range of interests but share a common wish to improve balance, coordination and joy in all physical activities.

Summer 2017 Yogadance Intensive with Theresa Elliott
July 10th – 14th
9:30 – 4:00pm (includes lunch break)
This 5-day intensive will delve into the rich relationship between music, body and mind through the study of Yogadance. Posture, stylized yoga sequences, and a broad range of music will be explored and combined to create a set work of yoga choreography.
Theresa Elliott has developed and refined a unique methodology of instruction for her original content and choreography over the last 28 years. Through deconstruction, intellectual engagement and physical repetition, she teaches the relationship between the stillness of stationary posture, the transitions of vinyasa, and the expression of Yogadance.
The intensive culminates in an informal performance at the annual Taj Yoga Summer Works in Progress show, Friday evening, July 14. Performing is an exciting way to share and inspire others, and strengthens the group bond forged through the week. Participation in the performance is optional and highly recommended.
A solid understanding of standing poses, healthy backs and knees. How to prepare and what to bring will be included in the con rmation email.
Early Bird Registration: $695 by June 15. $750 after
Bring a new student or family member and pay $995!

Originally The Yoga Tree Teacher Training (1996 - 2003) was created and taught by Kathryn Payne and Theresa Elliott. The program was renamed Pacific Yoga Teacher Training and Advanced Studies in 2003 and moved to Taj Yoga in 2004, the studio founded by Theresa. Pacific Yoga offered both 200- and 500- hour programs until 2014, when the partners retired the training.
The program was unique in it’s approach. Both Kathryn and Theresa’s extensive knowledge of the practice allowed them to create original content and teaching methodologies, and with the exception of anatomy, the entire program was taught by just the two partners.
Often called “The Harvard of Teacher Trainings,” Pacific Yoga included the full spiritual practice of yoga, trained hundreds of teachers, and had a deep impact on yoga in the Seattle area.
Both Kathryn and Theresa continue to teach.
