THE WEIRD AND THE WONDERFUL

BOOK NOW

 
This passage quotes a ‘certain Chinese encyclopaedia’ in which it is written that ‘animals are divided into: (a) belonging to the Emperor, (b) embalmed, (c) tame, (d) sucking pigs, (e) sirens, (f) fabulous, (g) stray dogs, (h) included in the present classification, (i) frenzied, (j) innumerable, (k) drawn with a very fine camelhair brush, (l) etcetera , (m) having just broken the water pitcher, (n) that from a long way off look like flies’. In the wonderment of this taxonomy, the thing we apprehend in one great leap, the thing that, by means of the fable, is demonstrated as the exotic charm of another system of thought, is the limitation of our own, the stark impossibility of thinking “that”.
— Michel Foucault, The Order of Things

Marysia Do is quickly establishing her global reputation as a meticulous, encyclopaedic teacher of teachers. Her superb practice is the embodiment of her knowledge. She is known as the queen of handstand by her students and followers. 

Marysia loves handstands and every variation thereof. Who doesn't like having their world turned upside down from time to time? At seventeen she took her first little flip around when she moved from New York to California to attend USC. There, in Santa Monica, she spent the past ten years refining her yoga practice with her fabulously fun, yet intensely strict teachers Brock and Krista Cahill, follow on with Dharma Mittra, Briohny and Dice. After graduating from USC, she spent the next four years in graduate school studying Chinese Medicine. Marysia is a licensed Acupuncturist and Herbalist. Her daily handstanding-flow-yoga practice helped prepare her for the next big flip which took her across the globe to Singapore in September 2013.

Though quite advanced in some ways Marysia found the Singapore yoga culture rather inhibited. She wanted to show them how powerful they really were! Marysia was on a mission.  But as she applied the techniques she had learned over her 10 years of practice she found the students progress limited.  So she set her textbook learning aside and began to innovate. 

She studied her student’s movement and thinking patterns, which shifted her teaching style.  In a short amount of time Marysia became famous all over South East Asia, Australia and in the Middle East for her ability to expedite the journey into advanced asana using both innovative and traditional techniques.  Marysia uses motivational speaking, meditation and music in addition to pragmatic sequencing and alignment cues to empower her students.  She is also capable of teaching to the individual even within the flow of large group classes. 

With a very heavy heart, in July 2017, Marysia and her husband move back to the US.   She now lives in Denver, Colorado and looks forward to sharing her acquired knowledge with the western yoga world. Marysia’s fear, that making yoga her profession would poison her passion, could not have proven more false.  Although Marysia is still super A type, in the yoga room she takes such joy in forgetting herself in service to her students.  Marysia is her best version of self when she is teaching yoga.

During this two-day course you will learn how to better connect with your body and trust your goals. Expansion is very much related to knowing when to take a rest and when to push. Expansion also about knowing how to effectively analyze and reflect on the work you’ve done so that you remain enthusiastic as you aspire to more. This kind of effective thinking is extremely helpful both on and off the yoga mat.

In class you can expect to work on arm balances, inversion, backbends, hip openers and some wild transitions. Surya Namaskar Handstand will also be practiced to reemphasize handstand techniques. Handstand takes a long time to learn and flow with; Marysia will help you get there faster. Marysia is adamant in her practice of inclusiveness so if you are intimidated, don’t be. She will provide variations that make class accessible and challenging for both intermediate and advanced practitioners. Sign up and join the highflying crew!

As beautiful as tradition is, in order to be truly present, we must learn to let go.  Both familiar and new postures will be explored as we open up and stabilize the spine, allowing you to venture deeper into the practice of back bends. In this class Marysia will show you how gain mobility — without exploiting shoulder or lumber spine sensitivity. Back bends are super exciting postures! But without open shoulders, relaxed hip flexors, and core stability, the depth of our practice can be limited. Don’t be put off by tightness, together we will learn how to navigate our bodies and you will leave the room taller than when you came.

Although inversions can seem intimidating, the alignment cues for practicing them are actually quite accessible.  The work is stabilizing the mind and connecting the mind to the body while being in a bit of a precarious position.  To make inversions more accessible Marysia will have you practice the alignment in standing poses and other postures that are more familiar.  Once your body becomes well acquainted with the appropriate muscular contractions we then take it upside down into a flying flow.  During the flow analysis is set aside and we practice trusting ourselves.  Work hard, play hard, rest.
