A Body-Mind Centering® Approach toEMBODIED VINYASAThru Cellular Consciousness, Breathing and Movement
This 2 day workshop is an invitation to explore the subtle layers of how our amazing body moves and discover the richness and depth of the practice of embodied vinyasa yoga.
We will tune in our senses and slide below our skin, dive into our inner and outer environment, turn everything INSIDE OUT and then let our bones, tissues, blood and organs inform our vinyasa movement.
Somatic inquiry guided by curiosity and acceptance awakens a greater consciousness and provides a deeper understanding of underlying movement patterns of receptivity, organization, and expression.
By expanding your efficiency and range of qualities this workshop will help you discover increased comfort and ease, and provide you with a greater repertoire of movement possibilities and creative vinyasa sequencing inventions.
* Look closely at inspiring anatomical landscapes in order to motivate kinesthetic somatic explorations of embodied awareness within vinyasa flow.
* Through mutual resonance, discover the primary tissues through which we express our vinyasa practice.
* Consciously inhabit those tissues which are usually in shadow so that the supporting tissues can be given voice bringing our vinyasa practice into wholeness, greater ease and fullness.
Material will be presented through a Body-Mind Centering® approach and will include movement exploration, touch, lecture, demonstration and discussion.
This workshop is for people who have some experience with movement, bodywork, consciousness practice or other psychophysical discipline and wish to explore more deeply the interrelated embodiment of movement with the body and consciousness.
We especially invite movers, dancers, yoga practitioners/teachers and others who want to gain greater embodiment of the relationship of movement and consciousness for their practice and own personal growth.
