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.

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.

About Edward Clark
Pranamaya Yoga Media is pleased to boast about its unique, talented instructors. One teacher on our master list that truly stands out is Edward Clark. He elegantly brought yoga to the stage by founding the Tripsichore Yoga Theatre, a London-based group that performs yoga as performance art.
Yoga As Performance Art
Tripsichore Yoga Theatre is clear that what they do is not dance. Their team consists of some dancers as well as some with pure yoga backgrounds. Though the movements are grounded in yoga, this is yoga as art.
Our Edward Clark yoga DVD provides a sampling of this visionary teacher’s insights. Supporting such an inventive interpretation of yoga through Edward’s teachings is a great example of Pranamaya’s commitment to making yoga accessible to a variety of individuals, and not remaining stuck in a stringent idea of what constitutes “yoga.”
Edward comes from a robust yoga training background, having studied the practice since 1978. He is highly influenced by traditions such as Ashtanga Vinyasa and Iyengar. He also has a background in dance. This multifaceted wealth of experience makes Edward Clark yoga DVDs very dynamic, and a true counterpart to more mainstream forms of popular yoga, such as yin yoga and yoga therapy. Edward is especially interested in the concept of the vinyasa (a fluid movement of poses) in yoga, which informs the performance aspect of his interpretation of yoga.
Diversify and Deepen Your Yoga Practice
Purchase our Edward Clark yoga DVD, Tripsichore Yoga, to learn even more. For experienced yogis, his guidance may open up your already-existing practice to a new depth of movement or understanding, especially when it comes to bandhas and inversions that require a great deal of core strength and awareness. As yoga evolves into numerous modern day interpretations of the poses and philosophies behind the practice, it is very important for each individual to find the yoga practice that really resonates with them. If you love movement and exploration, this DVD is for you.
