PATHWAYS OF POTENCY – An Embodied Flow™ weekend
Spaces within the architecture of our human bodies take on the realm of “sacred” due their amplitude of energy. Any access point in our body can be a portal to the infinitude of the Universe but there are few locations of particular interest that have been recognized through the yoga traditions for millennia. These are: our central channel, our heart, our core, and our crown. When our awareness in one of those centers is blocked or stagnated, the energy in the corresponding physical area will not flow optimally. Thus, we might feel disconnected, disempowered or even disembodied. In this workshop we will explore these sacred arenas within our bodies endeavoring to reconnect them through meditation, asana flows and lecture to reawaken the numinous space within.
Hridaya – Journey to Mind of the Heart
Starting with the felt sense of the heart and the lungs as a portal this uplifting, energetic flow will utilize the buoyancy of the lungs to nurture the heart into standing flows. Moving through twists and backbends as our focus for exploring this center we will use the felt sense to cultivate the pathway from the heart and lungs through our upper body establishing lighter and more energetic pulse from the sweetness of this center.
Remembrance – Journey to the Ground of Being
Our natural state is the expansion of space resulting in balancing between the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems. Tapping into the lower energy centers of the core to ground the legs, this class will utilize hip openers, forward bends, pranayama and organ sensibility to ground, and open into our inner expansion tipping us into remembrance of our authentic Self.
Lila – Journey to the Realm of Possibilities
Establishing the central channel as the vertical axis of movement in the body, this class will create a series of dynamic asanas in flow using the midline not only as the point of reference to create an easeful and dynamic flow, but to remember the still point of potential from where we came.
Embodied Flow workshops use a combination of lecture, partner work and flow in asana. The facilitator works to cultivate the harmony of the group mind. The written description is intended to be an anchor point but only secondary to the attention what is happening in the room and what can serve that process.
