Often we begin the journey of yoga working with muscles and skeletal structure, creating shapes or movements with the body based on generalized rules of alignment. As with most endeavors, through the consistency of practice, awareness of subtler forces grows, and usually paradox is created – what was regarded as correct at one level of practice is not necessarily correct at another. And it is through the discarding of old ways of seeing, those that no longer serve our most creative potential, that evolution occurs and growth results.

During this class, discover your ability to recognize and release habitual patterns of movement and posture, and re”mind” yourself of the infinite grace and creativity we are all capable of. Instruction will include gravity supported movement and meditation, with light-handed guidance from a senior instructor and support from the inherent energy of people practicing together. It will help you fine tune and energize your yoga practice, no matter the style, and cultivate intuition born from your own personal experience.

Instruction during the Workshop will encourage personal responsibility for movement, with suggestions for adjustments with individual conditions and levels of ability.

All levels are welcome!
