The Iyengar yoga teacher I have mentioned several times, Elise Browning Miller, is coming back to Michigan. I cannot wait!
Her classes will be hosted by the Michigan Yoga Association in Kalamazoo. The workshop details are in a PDF on their website. I thought I’d republish them here in HTML to make them easier to share.

Elise will lead students through standing poses to prepare for an uplifting backbend practice. Elise will pace the class so that students will feel secure enough to work with a variety of backbend poses. Students should be familiar with standing poses and beginning backbends.
