I’m very excited to have written the featured article, “Upwardly Mobile” for the current (Oct. 2012) issue of Yoga Journal. My deepest thanks go out to my fantastic editor Charity Ferreira, my creative partner Lydia Mann, model Kate Holcombe, and yoga spotter extraordinaire, Jennifer Rodrigue.
In June I flew out to San Francisco for a day to help with the photo shoot, and I had a blast. It was a long day, and we shot a record number of poses for a YJ practice article (23), but since we were so efficient, we had time to shoot a video of the sequence, which is available at Yoga Journal’s livemag.
The sequence itself is one I’ve been teaching for about 20 years, and is the central piece of the DVD I released thru Human Kinetics in 2010. I’m really pleased to be sharing it with a wider audience. Below, I’m attaching the original drawing of the sequence from 1993, and some images of the photo shoot at Michael Winokur’s studio.
Give the practice a try and let me know what you think!
