The yogic concept of being a body encompasses three interpenetrating dimensions: the physical, the subtle and the causal. The intention of our asana practice is to use the physical body to access and affect the other two.  

In the yoga model, the causal body stores our habits and patterns; the subtle body bridges the causal and the physical bodies and directs the physical, and the physical body provides a vehicle for our engagement with the world.

Western anatomy recognizes the joints of our physical body as spaces between one or more bones; a yoga lens sees those spaces as pools of prana and therefore, gateways to the subtle body.

So let’s dive into those spaces!

Our PostureTweak approach will progress joint-by-joint, starting with the feet and making our way on up to experience directly the gifts each joint/joint complex offers. Our invitation—in both our joint-by-joint exploration and in our integrated practice—will be to notice and appreciate our current capacities; through that, we will encourage our deeper potential to come forward.

Recommended Props: two yoga blocks, a chair or similar support (if needed), and a meditation cushion.

A recording will be made available to participants for two weeks following the workshop.
