The path of yoga is one of knowing oneself. Our Self is made of bundles of cells that create tissues that organize themselves into body structures, all of which have frequencies of feeling and a “mind” of their own. In this workshop we will journey through the layers of the felt sense of being in order to know more of our Self.
The boundary between the inside and the outside. That first point of contact and touch the unifying envelope of your being which allows for a continuity in structure and movement- in this flow we will practice initiating movement from the skin.
As we dive a layer deeper than the skin into the story tellers of our movement, the muscles that are wrapped potentiality – we will practice a dynamic asana with power and punch.
The elegant architecture of our body plan that dives us our body vocabulary, though the exploration of seated forward bends, hip openers and inversions we remember how to move from the felt sense of our bones.
The fluid contents of our body. Since ancient times from Chinese medicine to Greek practitioners our organs were thought to have great influence on our character. In this slow flow practice we will tap into the felt sense and frequency of our different organs to learn how to move from this deepest core of our being.
Each sequential session of this workshop is conceived of as a progressive weekend designed to establish the remembrance of ease in movement by looking into the feeling sense of various support structures in our body. This promises to be a comprehensive introduction to open or offer deeper exploration into the portals to the inner landscape.
