If you are questioning your own yoga postures, and/or would like to learn and practice how to see, approach and “skillfully” enhance a yoga posture, this module is for you.
Each session of this module begins with 2 hours of exploratory hands on yoga asana and finishes with dynamic lectures and dialogues into the famous yoga sutras text.
The yoga sutras is the heart of yoga and it is a timeless message. By exploring this ancient wisdom of yoga philosophy and psychology we will uncover practical answers to fundamental issues that we face in our lives today.
The Yoga Sutra is a text that illuminates the aspirant on the path of meditation. The sage Patanjali compiled the text on Yoga and it is one of the 6 classical schools of Indian philosophy. This text’s main focus is on realizing the Self (or Purusha) through concentration of the mind and meditation.
Most people today see yoga as an exercise system to stay trim, supple and healthy but Patanjali pays little attention to the physical practice or asanas and instead focuses primarily on meditation.
This Module also includes an in-depth look at the art of “Hands-on Enhancements”.
Whether you are a student or a teacher—Practicing “Hands on Enhancements” will elevate your practice. A “hands-on” should enhance the energetics & alignment of a posture— navigating one to a “feel-good” place. It is not about “fixing” rather it is about enhancing one’s experience.
Each session will involve detailed & guided partner work. As we slow down to reflect on the yoga postures, we will learn that postures feel differently to everyone. We will explore anatomy, alignment and the uniqueness of each body within the traditional yogic postures.
Cost: $600 or $480 for bronze members
