Releasing strain in the ribs is difficult, for there are so many ribs and they are an integral part of all of our movements—walking, turning, carrying etc. It is common for there to be gluing and sticking between the ribs and its adjoining musculature (intercostals). Typically the rib basket is shifted to one side, rotated or pulled downward. This class frees up restrictions throughout the ribs which in turn helps release tightness around the organs and compression around the diaphragm. Our aim will be to open the ribs as a preparation for deep breathing (pranayama).

Prajna Yoga: Tias & Surya Little

Prajna Yoga makes its home in the foothills of Santa Fe, New Mexico – the home of Tias and Surya Little. We believe that yoga is a pathway that begins in the outer layers of body and mind and navigates inward to the mystical, subtle and rarely seen interior. We combine meditative practice with the power and grace of asana training. In a process that requires sensitivity and inner listening, we explore the sheaths of connective tissue, muscle and bone in order to bring about greater wakefulness, luminosity and space within.
