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.

RYT 200

I began practicing yoga more than 10 years ago in Russia and fell in love with it! I tried different styles back then, and my favorite was Vinyasa yoga style. It appealed to me because it’s sequences and meditative rhythm let me feel so strong and flexible and yet present in the moment at the same time. I believe that practicing yoga helps to improve well-being and enable one to become more content and happy. 

When I moved to the USA, I started looking for a community where I could practice my favorite style of yoga. I’m so happy and grateful that I found Tribal Yoga studio where I decided to get my teacher’s training. I came to the training because of my desire to help people. My background includes working as a psychologist and a teacher. This was always my passion - to help people grow and develop. The same in yoga: I see the role of a teacher as a helper and supporter in a person’s path to a better Self, where the first step is deeper knowledge of who you really are. I have found that yoga provides the opportunity to meet your true-self through the physical and spiritual practice. 

What inspires me in my everyday life: spending time with my family, my friends and my pets, seeing the beauty of the nature, meditating in the sunset, having conversations with my loved ones, and teaching.
