The aim of yoga practice is to build a strong yet pliable interior core. The challenge in yoga and other mind-body disciplines is to bring lightness and lift to the core body without tightening or causing unnecessary constriction. One of the primary aims of this class is to build core stability by strengthening the musculature and ligaments along the spine.  We do this through balancing poses for the arms and legs which help build core stability in the marrow of the bones. This immersion helps cultivate the deepest vitality in the body while cultivating feelings of levity and grace.

THE CROWN CHAKRA: THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

Through Yoga practice, the Buddha cultivated a firm spine and open hip joints to embody the highest wisdom called prajna. The word prajna suggests an insight or understanding that is not simply intellectual but involves an embodied, cellular knowing. In this week-end we combine the powerful techniques of asana and pranayama with the clear and poignant teachings of the Buddha dharma. We use asana to strengthen the body and dharma study to gain insight into the mind and emotional body. This process requires sensitivity, listening and a capacity to intimately connect with what is happening. Through dharma study, guided meditation, somatic awareness and yoga postures, this immersion is a profound integration of yoga and mindfulness. Tias guides students to states of inner reflection through poems of awakening from the Taoist and Zen traditions.
