Practicing Malasana—the Garland Pose—is a squat position that requires elasticity in the feet, ankles, knees and hips. This extremely valuable pose serves to unlock the joints of the legs and pelvis in order to free the spine. We begin opening the hip joints in a supine sequence prior to doing seated poses. Malasana as a gateway to practicing Bakasana, Bhujapidasana and Pasasana.

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.

Inner Transformation

Underlying our teaching is that we do not do poses for the sake of the pose, but for the quality of attention within the pose. Through yoga postures, dharma study, guided meditation, the yoga of sound, somatic awareness and dream work this is a practice that allows for unique, personal transformation.
