Description

How do you approach your yoga practice? Do you harmoniously move with your body and enjoy challenges yet simultaneously find ease and equanimity, or is there tension and intensity, a ferocity to push your body to its limits?

 

The practices of yoga do not have to be an intense struggle. This workshop explores how to balance discipline and effort with sweetness and surrender to experience the true essence of yoga.

 

We naturally live in a constant state of flux, and acknowledging this in your yoga practice can help to create a balanced approach to progressing and evolving.

 

When you understand the importance of cultivating ease in yoga practice, you can discover a new way of setting goals within your practice; with an acceptance that things don’t always go as planned. A disciplined practice will enable you to create positive change — but it is vital to allow peace and calm to exist, too.

Through yoga asana, pranayama, meditation, and yogic lifestyle discussion, you will:

  • Learn to meet yourself with compassion, and maintain a sense of equanimity amidst challenges
  • Experience the intensity of challenging practices, and the gentle ease of restorative classes — to remind you how to balance discipline and surrender within the flow of your personal practice
  • Deepen your understanding of the relationship between posture alignment and the breath
  • Learn how to create yoga sequences that seamlessly integrate effort and ease
  • Arrive in the present moment, free from the ego mind and cultivate space within yourself for wholeness and well-being

You will return home with an understanding of how to draw strength and power into your practice while embracing the value of ease and simple results. Ultimately, you will realize that the purpose of your practice is not a particular posture, but a healthy and joyful state of living.

 

Open to all yoga practitioners; at a minimum, a 6 week introduction to yoga is required prior to this workshop.

 

CEUs available for yoga teachers.
