Big Little Shifts
Have you ever noticed that big shifts are usually small adjustments? A repositioned trikonasana can at first seem to crush the breath. And sitting higher on your sit bones in navasana can shake your entire body. Teeny-tiny two-millimeter shifts are sometimes cataclysmic! Our neighbor island, Big Island is going through the wringer right now with an erupting volcano.
So how to Be in a changing environment? Nature shows us everything. Be like a gushing waterfall full of abandon as you vinyasa by using the momentum that is already present. Or Be like a feather floating down the stream so lightly defying gravity. Breath, bandas, intention and vayus move us already. All we have to do is get out of the way to return to life's natural flow. All things eventually return to balance.
This workshop-styled class will be taught where asanas will be deconstructed into their lowest integral foundation, approaching movement with more ease, grace and integrity for deepening inner and outer experiences. Hands on adjustments, examining movement and discussing the process will give participants insights to move beyond current patterns into that next-level practice using lesser-known Yogic discernments. Class will be physically challenging organic flow, based on participants’ strengths and weaknesses.
The ability to adjust to change determines how far you’ll climb up the one mountain.
Class is excellent for yoga teachers and students alike.
