3
00:01:12,859 –> 00:01:18,210
my name is Carol Marcy and I’ve been

4
00:01:18,210 –> 00:01:21,630
practicing yoga formally since the age

5
00:01:21,630 –> 00:01:27,990
of 19 I’m 47 now for 28 years and I have

6
00:01:27,990 –> 00:01:30,479
a degree in philosophy and actually a

7
00:01:30,479 –> 00:01:33,209
master’s as well my main influences with

8
00:01:33,209 –> 00:01:36,810
yoga are I a garnish Sangha so this

9
00:01:36,810 –> 00:01:38,640
would be the Krishnamacharya lineage so

10
00:01:38,640 –> 00:01:42,599
that’s what is known as and they studied

11
00:01:42,599 –> 00:01:45,869
a anger for 12 years and Sangha for

12
00:01:45,869 –> 00:01:48,989
eight years I gave up a Sangha after

13
00:01:48,989 –> 00:01:52,259
Pattabhi Jois died shortly after things

14
00:01:52,259 –> 00:01:55,020
were just coming to a place where I

15
00:01:55,020 –> 00:01:58,649
wanted to integrate more of Ayurvedic

16
00:01:58,649 –> 00:02:01,049
and chakra work and tend to work and

17
00:02:01,049 –> 00:02:04,560
just different parts of the work that I

18
00:02:04,560 –> 00:02:08,369
have studied into my teaching I think

19
00:02:08,369 –> 00:02:10,169
I’ve been teaching about 10 years before

20
00:02:10,169 –> 00:02:13,440
it started teacher training yeah and

21
00:02:13,440 –> 00:02:15,660
then I’ve been training for the last ten

22
00:02:15,660 –> 00:02:16,049
years

23
00:02:16,049 –> 00:02:18,000
yes I’m teaching 20 years an old

24
00:02:18,000 –> 00:02:19,650
training for 10 and teachings return

25
00:02:19,650 –> 00:02:20,340
before that

26
00:02:20,340 –> 00:02:47,800
[Music]

27
00:02:55,550 –> 00:02:58,350
the style of yoga that I teach it’s

28
00:02:58,350 –> 00:03:01,260
actually very important to know how the

29
00:03:01,260 –> 00:03:05,310
body works and because I’m a trained

30
00:03:05,310 –> 00:03:07,020
you’re a muscular therapist as well I

31
00:03:07,020 –> 00:03:10,230
would have a deep insight into the body

32
00:03:10,230 –> 00:03:12,390
trained typically as well as from a yoga

33
00:03:12,390 –> 00:03:16,230
perspective and even unflushed early

34
00:03:16,230 –> 00:03:18,150
looking at how everything is connected

35
00:03:18,150 –> 00:03:22,110
in the body so I explained the

36
00:03:22,110 –> 00:03:24,270
biomechanics of the pose and how they

37
00:03:24,270 –> 00:03:26,160
tie in with the distance of why we do

38
00:03:26,160 –> 00:03:28,260
this and why we do that so that people

39
00:03:28,260 –> 00:03:31,440
can through the adjustments learn and

40
00:03:31,440 –> 00:03:34,950
how both works and I think it’s really

41
00:03:34,950 –> 00:03:37,980
important to provide a level of safety

42
00:03:37,980 –> 00:03:40,590
in the teaching of yoga that people you

43
00:03:40,590 –> 00:03:42,180
know should know the functions of

44
00:03:42,180 –> 00:03:44,400
muscles and what they do and you know

45
00:03:44,400 –> 00:03:46,410
the common mistakes in the comment or a

46
00:03:46,410 –> 00:03:49,500
muscular mistakes and relation to poses

47
00:03:49,500 –> 00:03:55,200
etc so my teachers get all of that okay

48
00:03:55,200 –> 00:03:57,120
so you’re basically going to shit lift

49
00:03:57,120 –> 00:03:58,560
the hips come forward onto the hand

50
00:03:58,560 –> 00:04:01,680
stand up a little bit good take

51
00:04:01,680 –> 00:04:03,030
chaturanga in the arms and narrow the

52
00:04:03,030 –> 00:04:07,180
elbows you have that excellent good

53
00:04:07,180 –> 00:04:10,120
don’t go to load yes with yes and then

54
00:04:10,120 –> 00:04:11,110
you’re trying to straighten that back

55
00:04:11,110 –> 00:04:12,120
bottom leg

56
00:04:12,120 –> 00:04:15,970
you can see here but I’m just standing

57
00:04:15,970 –> 00:04:16,839
there yeah

58
00:04:16,839 –> 00:04:21,160
and then this straightened out so you

59
00:04:21,160 –> 00:04:24,780
get this switching that arm a little bit

60
00:04:24,780 –> 00:04:28,960
okay so what I want to do is sit in for

61
00:04:28,960 –> 00:04:32,949
customer across to easy cross legs and

62
00:04:32,949 –> 00:04:34,990
you’re going to do some lateral flexion

63
00:04:34,990 –> 00:04:38,169
and the idea here is that to wave in the

64
00:04:38,169 –> 00:04:40,660
arm over so you can choose one side

65
00:04:40,660 –> 00:04:46,600
first good it’s comfortable for you to

66
00:04:46,600 –> 00:04:49,330
contract this side here and open this

67
00:04:49,330 –> 00:04:52,600
side and then there’s not much opening

68
00:04:52,600 –> 00:04:53,169
here

69
00:04:53,169 –> 00:04:56,889
yeah because again the cutbush on the

70
00:04:56,889 –> 00:04:58,210
other side you should get more open in

71
00:04:58,210 –> 00:05:01,289
here and then decide

72
00:05:05,400 –> 00:05:22,630
[Music]

73
00:05:26,300 –> 00:05:29,580
up to the ground shoulder-width apart

74
00:05:29,580 –> 00:05:33,509
but straighten your elbows good and then

75
00:05:33,509 –> 00:05:36,719
you can walk in again and then

76
00:05:36,719 –> 00:05:39,209
straighten up again try and straighten

77
00:05:39,209 –> 00:05:41,009
lift into your chest and forward and

78
00:05:41,009 –> 00:05:44,999
then walk in again and convey can bend

79
00:05:44,999 –> 00:05:55,319
as you’re walking ya know people tell me

80
00:05:55,319 –> 00:05:57,809
all the time that one of the reasons

81
00:05:57,809 –> 00:05:59,429
they one of the big reasons they choose

82
00:05:59,429 –> 00:06:01,709
my training is because of the anatomy

83
00:06:01,709 –> 00:06:05,219
and the alignment even though it’s

84
00:06:05,219 –> 00:06:07,379
vinyasa you know as vinyasa flow the

85
00:06:07,379 –> 00:06:11,329
flow form but for teaching even though

86
00:06:11,329 –> 00:06:15,329
you I like to do flowing practices and

87
00:06:15,329 –> 00:06:17,610
people are sweating and just you know

88
00:06:17,610 –> 00:06:19,949
melting away the tensions and the strong

89
00:06:19,949 –> 00:06:23,129
asana we also do work where we slow

90
00:06:23,129 –> 00:06:24,779
things down and everything is broken

91
00:06:24,779 –> 00:06:27,419
down and explained and how the body

92
00:06:27,419 –> 00:06:31,439
works not just in relation to the poses

93
00:06:31,439 –> 00:06:34,259
but also the body itself and how the

94
00:06:34,259 –> 00:06:36,089
central nervous system works in relation

95
00:06:36,089 –> 00:06:37,769
to stretching and different things like

96
00:06:37,769 –> 00:06:39,539
that and the mind-body connection so

97
00:06:39,539 –> 00:06:43,469
there’s a lot more depth relating to the

98
00:06:43,469 –> 00:06:48,899
anatomy that I believe when we teach

99
00:06:48,899 –> 00:06:52,550
this type of yoga is very important

100
00:06:52,550 –> 00:07:09,209
[Music]

101
00:07:09,209 –> 00:07:12,580
the subjective Ayurveda is so huge but I

102
00:07:12,580 –> 00:07:14,499
do include and on the course and I do

103
00:07:14,499 –> 00:07:16,989
that for a couple of reasons one is that

104
00:07:16,989 –> 00:07:20,080
it it’s a form of self-development for

105
00:07:20,080 –> 00:07:21,999
people so when people get to know their

106
00:07:21,999 –> 00:07:24,189
dosha are there

107
00:07:24,189 –> 00:07:26,529
yeah the frequency which is the

108
00:07:26,529 –> 00:07:29,080
Constitution they were born into people

109
00:07:29,080 –> 00:07:30,729
love that you know and when they fusing

110
00:07:30,729 –> 00:07:33,059
other people as well and it starts to

111
00:07:33,059 –> 00:07:35,889
explain the last advice why they may act

112
00:07:35,889 –> 00:07:39,580
a certain way or yeah so they see

113
00:07:39,580 –> 00:07:41,860
themselves in relation to nature which

114
00:07:41,860 –> 00:07:43,839
is really really interesting and the

115
00:07:43,839 –> 00:07:45,939
meditation the breath work we ask

116
00:07:45,939 –> 00:07:48,219
another fluffy they all come together

117
00:07:48,219 –> 00:07:50,949
it’s like your old one subject and they

118
00:07:50,949 –> 00:07:52,689
support each other even the Yoga Sutras

119
00:07:52,689 –> 00:07:55,240
which I really love teaching with the

120
00:07:55,240 –> 00:07:57,429
group this year more than other years I

121
00:07:57,429 –> 00:07:59,800
have to say because I’m really slowing

122
00:07:59,800 –> 00:08:02,860
it down in teasing them out and you know

123
00:08:02,860 –> 00:08:06,069
inviting the groups to contribute and

124
00:08:06,069 –> 00:08:08,589
doing circle work and using crayons and

125
00:08:08,589 –> 00:08:11,169
art therapy and empathic listening and

126
00:08:11,169 –> 00:08:13,179
so we’re we’re not just not just me

127
00:08:13,179 –> 00:08:14,709
standing there talking on my students

128
00:08:14,709 –> 00:08:16,869
but there’s a real contribution and

129
00:08:16,869 –> 00:08:20,969
co-creation from the group and a sharing

130
00:08:26,709 –> 00:08:29,719
we’re in the very idyllic holiday

131
00:08:29,719 –> 00:08:32,299
environment and I think it’s great to be

132
00:08:32,299 –> 00:08:33,740
in a beautiful environment for the

133
00:08:33,740 –> 00:08:36,259
training and you know it’s it’s a real

134
00:08:36,259 –> 00:08:41,079
blessing but it is not a holiday

135
00:08:44,910 –> 00:08:48,020
[Music]

136
00:08:49,050 –> 00:08:56,490
I love cycling outdoors ultimately the

137
00:08:56,490 –> 00:08:58,560
connection with nature is beautiful I

138
00:08:58,560 –> 00:09:00,240
mean when I practice at home I practice

139
00:09:00,240 –> 00:09:02,430
indoors but I’m looking out over water

140
00:09:02,430 –> 00:09:06,600
and a lot of trees teacher training in

141
00:09:06,600 –> 00:09:09,390
India it’s just such a blessing you know

142
00:09:09,390 –> 00:09:12,600
to teach in the birthplace of yoga it

143
00:09:12,600 –> 00:09:14,850
was just an energy here that you know

144
00:09:14,850 –> 00:09:17,970
isn’t anywhere else and I have to say I

145
00:09:17,970 –> 00:09:21,010
feel very very grateful for that

146
00:09:21,010 –> 00:09:24,590
[Music]

147
00:09:24,590 –> 00:09:26,650
you

148
00:09:27,120 –> 00:00:00,000
[Music]
