This workshop is taking place in-person at Club Fit
Join our beloved master teacher for a workshop that will provide consciousness and awareness to the parts of the body used in any given asana (As the Anatomy Allows). We'll explore the range of motion with this focus, leading to alignment and integration and communication and collaboration of the Brain, Bones, and Breath.
The practice of yoga during this workshop will remind us to seek balance, not only physically but also to explore the techniques of inner balancing to help us through the challenges of our lives. Tadasana, the Warriors, Vrksasana, and other standing poses help us to ground, restore, and reclaim strength to empower our physical and emotional sense of well-being—to “stand on our own two feet” and to “stand our ground” with self-trust, dignity, and integrity. The seated poses will encourage focus on our upper body and breath as we stretch and expand to reset our body’s connection with the self via the nervous system and the brain.
When practicing, one should experience the “edge” with care, concern, and compassion for self to change damaging fear into the courage of the Warrior with the accompanying strength of competency and capability.
Be a witness to your own transformation on the path to becoming the Wise One!
Bring any props that you like to use for seated and standing postures and any questions you might have.
