Students over the years have expressed appreciation for the way that Willamarie structures her asana classes around an anatomical theme paired with an appropriate philosophical theme. Each class focuses on specific actions; the poses are linked together in a methodical progression during which Willamarie asks students to bring their attention to particular areas of the body and to observe with curiosity and equanimity as they strive to stretch both body and mind. Her sequences are designed to be accessible to all — safe for beginners and an invitation for more experienced students to dive ever deeper in their poses.
