About the Tutor

Marye trained for five years at the Dharma Yoga Centre under the tutelage of Julie Friedeberger and Swami Dharmananda, and later spent four years at Mandala Yoga Ashram in Wales.

       To demonstrate the two main options for the response of the spine to pressure

       To explore safe posture for sustaining the dynamic movements that can build bone

       To explore strategies for promoting uprightness and the body-language of gentle assertion

       To look at evolutionary patterns of self-mobilisation

Objectives of the Day

       learn practices which foster proportional articulation in all major joints

       learn to reorganise the most vulnerable areas of the spine, i.e. cervical and lumbar, in a passive and organically acceptable way

       enrich their movement vocabulary through learning a variety of ways to promote uprightness

       experience how utilising evolutionary patterns of movement can enhance the efficiency and economy of our own movement


This course is aimed primarily at teachers who wish to integrate exercises designed to combat osteoporosis into their weekly classes.
