From the Skin to the Soul: The 5 sheaths in Asana and Pranayama.
with Brooke Myers 2-5pm
In yogic practice we experience physical and physiological changes, emotional and intellectual alteration, and moments of deep clarity. These are the kosas, the sheaths which envelop a person and which our practice aims to bring together. This workshop will be an investigation of the ways in which BKS Iyengar’s teaching makes us aware on these multiple levels.
Level 1 and up. Inversions will be practiced.
The upper back and shoulders.
3-5pm Saturday June 25th. This is sold out.
- This class is focused on creating strength in the middle back to relieve tension in the upper back and neck.
- Work on a specific area with close guidance *
- Learn how to modify or work poses to support and strengthen your focus area in your ongoing practice.
- Limited to 10 people only.
The asanas as taught in a regular Iyengar Yoga class are therapeutic on many levels. These Saturday classes are intended to provide a guideline for bringing attention and awareness to a part of the body that is in pain or injured. The practice of yoga is simply to pay attention. Through increasing our attention to an area in need, the area has the potential, through specific modifications that can be applied to help treat and, for the most part, improve a part of the body that is compromised. Regular practice of these modifications are crucial to healing. Iyengar Yoga teachers are, at the Junior 1 level and up, qualified to undertake treating people with various injuries. Jessica is enrolled in an ongoing Iyengar Yoga therapeutics training with Advanced Iyengar Yoga teacher Manouso Manos. Manouso is the leading Iyengar Yoga therapeutics teacher in the world.
