Join us for our Winter Practice and Process Intensive January 6th- February 28th!
For practitioners of all levels.?
Practice We will practice together 2-4 sessions per week (see below for schedule). We will cover the foundations of the Ashtanga Vinyasa practice as we explore what it is to construct space and fluidity in body and mind.
Process? is what we call the work of the experiential observation-based process that is fundamental to developing one?s own practice. It is unfortunately most often missing in today?s ?yoga marketplace? where what is marketed as a ?yoga practice? is really a ?yoga product?.?Process?is a part of all our training programs and is the driving force of our Practice and Process Intensives.
In Process, we undertake explorations that lay the groundwork for the practice of svadhyaya (self-reflection or self-study) through which, over time and with the repetitions of practice, we create the space and corresponding awareness that allow us to be fully grounded in the body, in the present moment. Process is experience and observation based. While we explore relevant aspects of theory and philosophy, these explorations are firmly rooted in our observations of our own practice experience.? We learn to articulate questions. We speak and write answers to these questions with and in our bodies as we move and breath and speak to the experiences as such. These answers evolve over time. As such, they become for each of us an element of the singular pathways of movement inward and outward, folding and unfolding, that we call yoga.
Topics we may explore in process include pranayama, the eight limbs of ashtanga yoga, detailed work on constructing the frame, the internal knottings or? bandhas, functional anatomy, adjustments, interpretive work and last but not least, your questions arising from your practice that evening.
