Keeping it Simple – Yoga as Shape & Form
Weekend Yoga Workshop with Alice Kennedy
July 11-13, 2014
There is no doubt that yoga is a complex and unique way of looking at our bodies and the world. There are so many very valuable ways to understand yoga, learn yoga, embody yoga, and teach yoga. What if we kept it simple, and gently asked the shapes and forms of the poses to whisper to us exactly what we need to know at that time. What if a pose, however complex or simple, had in it a blueprint of understanding in an of itself? This weekend we will work together to understand these poses and what they may teach us. Be prepared to have fun!
Rest and Renew: Friday, July 11th, 5 – 7pm
A deep, slow, mostly restorative class that will focus on bringing peace and harmony to your weekend. Come be nourished and embraced by the perfect, sublime nature of your own body and the nature around us. Expect some mantra and setting of sacred space for the weekend.
Upside Down & All Around: Saturday, July 12th, 9-11:30am
How is it that going upside down brings insight into our strengths, our weaknesses, and sometimes our sense of play? Come learn some practical tools to help build your confidence with inversions. Who knows? You might even have fun!
Hips & Hamstrings: Saturday, July 12th. 3-5:30pm
Mellow down this afternoon with the power of hips, forward folds, and twists. These poses often give us a profound perspective into the core of ourselves.
Feel Good Backbends, Sunday, July 13th. 9-11:30am
