& Better You Yoga:)
Change comes from within – Subtle Adjustment from WITHIN from the first photo.
First Trikonasana with a block – see the curve on upper rib, the neck curve – Teacher Judith observes…after placing the sand bag
Following careful verbal cures – THEN to the next photo taken within few minutes – note the subtle difference – see the cervical spine, the line with a little pelvic awareness, a sand bag for awareness … now block removed for a better alignment. Feeling the shift from within. Making space from within to find more freedom. This master teacher does not force with her hand adjustments – but observes and directs – then steps back to see the whole pose, i.e., assesses the energetics of the lines with mindful regard for human anatomy and kinesiology. Reminiscing the Invitational from last year – thank you Teacher Judith:) Same pose, totally different energy.


Here’s Teacher Judith photo found on the … where else but the internet … from awhile ago:) So so cool that she’s still teaching decades later !
