Great class! Thank you! I liked the block modifications for prepping for lizard! Also, I'm currently studying linguistics (2nd masters) and Anja was wondering about the word crook as in crook of the elbow. Here's a word history from Etymonline:  crook (n.)

c. 1200, hook-shaped instrument or weapon; tool or utensil consisting of or having as an essential component a hook or curved piece of metal, from Old Norse krokr hook, corner, cognate with Old High German kracho hooked tool, of obscure origin but perhaps related to the widespread group of Germanic kr- words meaning bent, hooked. If there was an Old English *croc it has not been found.
From late 14c. as a bend or curved part; late 15c. as any bend, turn, or curve. From mid-15c. as a shepherd's staff with a curved top. Meaning swindler is American English, 1879, from crooked in figurative sense of dishonest, crooked in conduct (1708). Crook dishonest trick was in Middle English, especially in reference to the wiles of the Devil.

One summer in grad school, I decided to try a hot power vinyasa class in the style of Baron Baptiste. From there, I was hooked. My passion for yoga was sparked by the ability to lose myself in the practice and to fall into the present. The intense yoga practice with which I had fallen in love gave me a reason to start taking care of myself by getting more sleep, drinking more water, and eating healthier. As yoga started changing my life, I started noticing the words my teachers were telling me on my mat were starting to creep into other aspects of my life. In 2014, I finished my 200-hour teacher training at Tribal Yoga, an affiliate of Rolf Gates Vinyasa Teacher Training. The philosophy and power of yoga have helped to pull me through periods of stress and anxiety and I successfully finished my PhD shortly after my teacher training.

An eternal student, I am constantly studying different aspects and types of yoga to deepen my understanding of the practice. It is my hope to apply what I learn to help my students as best as I possibly can. I have taken mentorships with Meaghan de Roos at Breathe Yoga Center and in Yoga Anatomy with Dr. Ariele Foster, DPT. My interests have led me to weekend workshops with Jason Crandell, Rolf Gates, Carson Calhoun, and Jonathan Miles (Maha Vira Yoga). I try to incorporate all facets of wellness ranging from myofascial release to essential oils to just paying attention to your own body! My classes are meant to be instructive but are always open to a little lighthearted fun.
