The wall has been with you since you first stepped onto your mat. Now discover how it will help you dive more deeply into your asana practice. In this master class we will use the wall as an aid for proper alignment, as a vehicle for deepening postures, as a tool for exploring fun sequences, as an assistant for inversions, and as a support for restorative postures.
Erica Taxin Bleznak, MSW, CYT began practicing yoga in 1986 in the Asthanga Yoga tradition until she met her Primary Teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll in 1992 and completed her yoga teacher training in the Pranakryia Yoga teaching tradition. Erica co-owned Jai Yoga Studio of the Main Line for 7 years until its closing, and opened Main Line Yoga Shala in Narberth in 2016. Six years ago she created a teaching curriculum for a Wall Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training program that allows students to utilize the wall as a prop for alignment and refinement, as well as a way to strengthen and deepen in the vinyasa practice. Erica travels frequently presenting at festivals and studios across the country, as well as hosts retreats internationally. Erica believes that if we can meet the practice with patience, curiosity and breath that will deliver us beyond the ways the mind has held us captive and reveal our inherent freedom.
