FLEXIBILITY, OBSERVATION AND TRANSFORMATION
As yoga practitioners you need no convincing of the benefits of flexibility and stretching. Instead, most of you reading this would rather learn the tools to help you go deeper into asana and gain a greater understanding of the science of stretching. Here is your chance.
We will explore the unique relationship between muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments and how movement occurs within them in response to signals from the brain. As with all animals we are constantly seeking stimulation and responding appropriately. Perception is the space between simple sensation and complex cognitional behaviour. This relationship can be hindered by a variety of conditions or injury states, but also by your state of mind.
Yoga is a discipline that teaches us new ways of experiencing the world. So beyond our physical understanding, once the observation and pranayama are brought into your movement practice, flexibility of both mind and body marry in a more responsive manner.
This workshop in open to yoga explorers of mixed ability. However, those familiar with my regular Vinyasa practice are preferred, so that the basics are already understood.
