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.

Yoga has been a catalyst in helping me heal myself and find peace in each moment. In 2003 while suffering from PTSD, I had my first introduction to yoga, not through the hatha (physical) yoga we all know so well, but through pranayama (breath work) and meditation. These things came together full circle when I began the physical practice a few years later. As a dancer I have always found healing energy in movement but finally making the true mind-body connection has offered me the opportunity to truly experience healing. Although I originally began the 200 hour registered yoga teacher training in an effort to deepen my own practice and understanding of yoga, I find great joy in sharing what I’ve learned in order to help others heal. I enjoyed it so much that I went on to study more by doing a 500 hour training with renowned author Rolf Gates. Now I teach Rolf's curriculum as an affiliate of his teacher training school. My approach to teacher training is really to teach my students how to move through life skillfully no matter what happens.
 
It is my intention to offer intelligently sequenced classes that will leave my students feeling successful and challenged while strengthening their own mind-body connection.
