Intro to Kauit and Yin Yoga
January 27, 2018
1pm - 5pm
Asana opens up the communication pathways between all aspects and systems of our being, in particular the nervous system (spine) and the tissues (muscle, bone, fascia, etc.). This is significant because in our 20s our bodies begin aging and our muscles get weaker and looser while our fascia shrink-wraps around these tissues. Of course, emotional reactions, such as applying our will, add to these aging effects, which is why it is important to address the fascia in beginner students even before addressing the muscular body. Additionally, when we impose our will on what is emerging in our body, we block our subconscious intelligence from maintaining and nurturing our involuntary systems. The focus of this workshop is to experience longer holds in Kaiut and Yin postures while facilitating the spontaneous healing capacity of our cellular body through the use of a cellular mula bandha breath technique.
5 KOSHAS - A Practice For Each Sheath (2 Day Workshop)
February 17 & 18, 2018
1 pm - 5 pm
For millennia, human beings have sought certainty, wellness and immortality outside themselves in the physical world. In actuality, such forms of permanence abide within one's soul or eternal unchanging self. As yogis, we access our soul by removing the layers of accumulated conditioning and reactive habits currently blocking its true expression. In this workshop, we free our soul by tapping into our koshas-five increasingly deeper layers (sheaths) of being housed within our bodies. You will experience a practice for each sheath-physical, breath and life force, mental, intuition, and soul. A regular, thoughtful eight-limb practice integrates these five koshas providing us with mind-body-spirit wellness.
