Description: The origins of yoga date back to a time in India before the Buddha, when deep inquiry into the nature of Ultimate Reality yielded insights into the origins and flows of energy, and how those energies manifest as mind and matter. The practices have survived over millennia and are indeed ever more useful in this complex modern world where both mind and body are being asked to take on more and more activity and information. The practices of Hatha yoga are designed to move, control, and channel energy in a way that promotes a more intimate understanding of how our fundamental physical and mental patterns can either bury us, or set us free. This workshop will give us principles and practices that are aligned with Yoga’s original purpose, while making it relevant to modern life. Whether your goal is to release tension, restore mobility, or expand awareness, you will be able to apply the concepts in this 3-hour session to heal body and mind, create more vigour, and make your seated meditation more steady and easeful.
