 The year was 1969.
As a teenager living in New York, I discovered yoga.
My mother originally went to a yoga class to observe.
Upon her return she said, "It wasn't for me, but you might like it."
The following week she took me to that same class.
The room was dark and lit by candles.
The male instructor wore a white hindu-style robe,
as did his two female assistants.
I learned the headstand that first class.
In savasana, I fell deep asleep.
Years later, I reflected on that initial experience of yoga.
How unusual it was for a 15 year old to relax that much!
I live, study and teach yoga from those original impressions today. .

Remover of obstacles

ReUnion Reviews

video/audio reviews BY RICHARD ROSEN

Traditionally, yogis take yoga to mean "union," which suggests that the goal of the practice is the joining of two separate entities, the embodied Self (jiva atman) and the great Self (parama atman). But since these two are in reality forever inseparable, their disunion only illusory, you can argue convincingly that the culmination of the practice is more accurately described as ReUnion - the title of this CD.

Whatever philosophical nuances she might intend, Marcia Galleher offers a straightfoward sequence. It begins with 10 minutes of meditation and breathing followed by about 50 minutes of asana: a couple of seated foward bends and twists, a 15-minute modified Sun Salutation, a variation of Bound Angle Pose (Baddha Konasana, here called Diamond Pose), a short reclined releasing pose and Corpse Pose. Sounds familiar, but the session has a good deal to recommend it. Galleher's precise, emphatic, yet down-home delivery almost makes you feel you're right there with her in class. She supports her instructions with engaging imagery, knows a thing or two about alignment, and adjusts her instructions to suit both beginners and intermediate students.

This CD is a flowing session of hatha yoga with accomplished yogini Marcia Galleher. Starting with a prayer and guided meditation, the hour-long session then takes you through some breathing exercises (pranayama) and postures (asanas) with Galleher giving continual guidance about how to adjust into the practices. There's lovely music to go along with many of the tracks and the CD comes with a booklet of pictures so you can make sure you're doing the asanas correctly. The session ends with a meditation in corpse pose (savasana) to allow your body and mind to relax fully and deeply. It's a great way to start the morning!
