With skillful touch, proper body mechanics, and an understanding of universal anatomical principals we will explore alignments for the fundamental yoga poses, helping to release structural tension and open energy pathways. Please join us for this evening class of partnering for enjoyment, and a more conscious awareness and deeper self-­‐refinement of our yoga practice. The program for Saturday 10 am – 5 pm and Sunday 9 am – 3 pm will include: Yoga of Energy Flow and The Power of Prana: Inner Fire, Outer Radiance How can we become still?....... By moving with the stream. And how can we become strong? .......By entering the flow. ~ Tao te Ching Integrating strength and flexibility training, energy cultivation, and open awareness, Yoga of Energy Flow is a unique and transformative yoga method. In this workshop we will draw from Kundalini Yoga, Meridian Yoga, and Kali Ray TriYoga to experience simple but powerful ways to increase and balance the flow of pranic energy through our body, mind, and spirit. We will work with pranayama, vinyasa, asana, chanting meditation, and chi gung in a practice that opens and changes us. As tension melts, the mind/body blocks disappear, and the heart begins to sing; we "flow" and the life energy of Prana flows through us, connecting us to heaven and earth, sun and moon, and all of nature. Meridian Yoga: The Art of Energy Flow Using gentle pressure, body weight, and skillful touch to open the body’s energy pathways, we will work with a partner to increase our range of motion and perfect our alignment in yoga asanas associated with the fourteen meridians of Chinese medicine. A modern stretching method called resistance/PNF stretching will be taught, along with shiatsu and Thai Yoga massage. When we release the tensions that we store in our bodies, we experience a profound alignment of body, mind and soul. The Power of the Breath: Kundalini Yoga and Classical Pranayama Practices Breath is life and life is breath. When breath flows, so does life. Experience harmony, lightness, joy, and a radiant spirit with breathing practices drawn from Kundalini Yoga and classical yoga. We will learn how to extend the breath, and then channel the heightened pranic energy using movements, breath retentions, inner locks, mudras, and asana. Chanting meditation in the style of Kundalini Yoga will be taught, as well as how to create an effective home practice. The power of the breath will help your life as nothing else. Please come with an empty stomach.
