Join Tripsichore Yoga founder Edward Clark for Tripsichore Yoga: Uniquely Advanced Vinyasa. This acclaimed 2-DVD set explores the extraordinary power of the Tripsichore Yoga vinyasa techniques.
Tripsichore (pronounced trip-sic-uh-ree) is a pioneering performance group that has astounded audiences around the world with its unique expression of vinyasa yoga on stage. Vinyasa in the Tripsichore definition is the evenly metered flow of movement, breath and thought resulting in a smooth, uninflected state of being. The group’s founding artist and performer Edward Clark is also equal parts dedicated yogi and inspiring, insightful teacher.
Something for Everyone
The materials in this unique set offer something for every level of student. The breathtaking performances will appeal to all audiences—yogis and non-yogis alike. More dedicated practitioners will gain deeper understanding and awareness of these techniques from the theory and workshop section. And finally, the three vinyasa practices at the heart of this DVD set are appropriate for strong intermediate to highly advanced students, and not recommended for beginners.
Exploring Unique Vinyasa
On the first DVD, Edward and fellow Tripsichorean Eileen Gauthier present six of their favorite yogic performance art pieces utilizing the Tripsichore methods. These breathtaking on-stage performances, set to original music by Lagoon West, have never before been recorded on video, and will awe and inspire all who see them. They represent the fullest expression and beauty of Tripsichore Yoga technique.
This DVD also features a special theory and practice workshop in which Edward presents both the philosophy and the specific techniques that form the foundation of Tripsichore Yoga. Ninety minutes of detailed material include discussions on topics such as The Bandhas, Handstands, The Breath, Techniques for Pratyahara, Dharana and Dhyana, and more. These insights, delivered with Edward’s clear, intelligent delivery and engaging humor, will expand the depth of your current practice, and open doors to new areas of movement, energy and awareness.
On the second DVD, Edward and Eileen present three full Tripsichore Yoga sequences for home practice. Each sequence explores the progression of these unusual vinyasas, building from intermediate to advanced movements. Though not suitable for beginners, the three vinyasa sequences are meant to encourage growth and transformation, inspiring you to move beyond your beliefs about physical, mental, and energetic limitations.
The first two practices, entitled ‘Simple’ and ‘Regular’, include versions that are either headstand or handstand-oriented, allowing you to chose an option that is appropriate for your experience. You may also loop many of the individual vinyasas for a more focused, specific practice of a particular movement. For the truly motivated and accomplished yogi, the DVD also includes an expert-level ‘Plus’ vinyasa sequence, incorporating many of the most difficult and beautiful Tripsichore movements.
