I had the opportunity to take a two day workshop with my teachers’ teacher, Mary Paffard, this weekend. We worked on the 5th and the 3rd chakras. It was delicious.

My Best Of…

“If there is one thing I pride myself on is my common sense, my complete imperviousness to all things zany and new age.” – from Listen to the Quiet Within by Tim Parks. Ed. note: Did I write that?

Mary Paffard has been teaching for over 25 years and she still gets the wobblies at times. This article is her attempt to share ways of working with the wobbles and to see how one can explore this “asana’ just like every other yoga challenge to enhance ones practice and self-reflection. — Heebie Jeebies of Teaching – brilliant.

Other articles from Mary include: Breathing into the Feet, Bobbling the Head: Balancing the Head on the Spine, and Befriending the Belly. – Get some, friends.

Want to take a class with Mary, but you aren’t in California? You can! Here’s the link for her DVD and a review.

“Paffard, a long time yoga teacher in Northern California, expands on the familiar with her meditative approach to yoga practice….Her instructions are clear, detailed and thoughtful, informed by her many years of Buddhist Vipassana meditation…” – Richard Rosen – Yoga Journal, June 07

  2. Extra fabulous links this week, Tami! I really enjoyed “Listen to the Quiet Within.” I loved where he said he went on retreat “a year later, because that’s how long it takes me to accept I have been wrong about something.” I couldn’t relate to that at all (I wish!). :)

    I also loved the article from Mary; I thought her point about there being a third component in the room–teacher, student and yoga–was really helpful.

    Thanks for sharing these–and the CY updates! xo

    • @anna: thank you for all the support and comment love!

      i really liked the quiet within as well. i’m so not a woo-woo yoga person, so it spoke to that part of me that is so skeptical of everything and just assured her it’s ok to be quiet.

      i hope you get to meet mary some day. she’s quite a quiet force of nature. so in awe of her and how she really walks the walk. she’s delightful.
