Spanda: the vibration of Consciousness 

Spanda is, in essence, the creative vibration of Consciousness that brings the Universe into existence. This workshop includes a dynamic practice of oppositions to highlight the flow of Consciousness that is ever present. Our entire experience on the mat, as in all aspects of life, is a constant reflection of this steady state of Consciousness experienced as some type of energy. We will use this ability to access deeper levels of Consciousness through energetic actions to create Standing Poses, Inversions and Backbends. We will conclude with Pranayama and Meditation. 2.5hrs.

Pratyhara: directing all sense to consciousness 

As we understand that all energetic felt senses are actually the flow of Consciousness, then our whole life becomes a moving meditation. In order to do this however we often need to cultivate a strong practice of parameters for the bodymind to follow while mindfully unweaving those "bad habits" that take us from embodying the fullness of Self. In this workshops practice we will use slow mindful movements to break down the specifics of Hip opening and Forward folds to create Arm balancing postures. When we experience each moment as Consciousness, then each moment holds the opportunity to be uplifting. When we experience all moments like this, then life is the complete absorption of Self. We will conclude with Pranayama and Meditation. 2.5hrs.
