Practice From Pune

with Elizabeth Reiback

The Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Instititite (RIMYI), located in Pune, India, is the heart and soul of Iyengar yoga. This is where the late B.K.S. Iyengar developed his method and where students from all over the world still come to study. Iyengar’s son, Prashant,  grandaughter, Abhijata, and senior teachers continue to conduct beginner, general, and advanced classes, as well as women’s classes, special medical classes, and classes for children.

Yogasana teacher, Elizabeth Reiback was recently there for two months of study, and will be sharing with us a class given there.

This is for intermediate-advanced students with a solid practice of headstand and shoulderstand.

Overachieving,Overworking, Overcompensating and Misunderstood
Yamuna Bodyrolling: Shoulders

taught by Eli McAfee

Saturday, April 15



Shoulder pain: It comes, it goes.  It flares up, you rest it.  You find someone-anyone-to rub that super small knot on the edge of your shoulder blade that you can’t get to and swear you’ll stop spending so much time slouching in front of a screen.  Sound familiar?  

Why are the shoulders  always so tight and cranky?  Because your shoulder is much larger and more complex that just the top tip of your arm.  Come to this workshop and start to re-define the sheer size of your shoulder.  Releasing the front edge on the sternum and spreading the back along the spine, you will feel the mobility once the front and back of the joint are working together.  Add some quality time on the side of the ribcage and some powerful work on the upper arm and your shoulders will be freer and more relaxed than you’ve ever felt them.

Mary Lou Weprin has been teaching ongoing classes at all levels at The Yoga Room in Berkeley, CA for over 30 years.

Together with Donald Moyer (founder of The Yoga Room, and author of “Awakening the Inner Body”) she has helped train many of the Bay Area teachers and teachers from all over the U.S. and Canada in the Yoga Room’s Advanced Studies Program, now in its 26th year.  As Associate Director of that program, she teaches the second year courses in asana movement theory and teaching technique.  She also leads week-long intensives at The Yoga Room, and teaches workshops in the U.S. and Canada. 

Mary Lou’s background training has been primarily with B.K.S. Iyengar and Gita Iyengar in India; Donald Moyer, Ramanand Patel and Judith Lasater, and the late Mary Dunn.  She also studied with Dona Holleman in the US and Italy.  She graduated from the Iyengar Yoga Institute in the late seventies, and later was on that faculty in San Francisco.  

She is interested in aligning the body and sequencing the practice in such a way as to energize and nurture the inner body.  She is also interested in making challenging poses more accessible using preparations, special sequencing, and lots of humor.  Her classes are educational, challenging and fun.
