Full Description

In the morning workshop, we will align the body in a way that you never thought possible, through the deep structures of the organs. Through the practice of yoga, we will find the internal support from the lungs and heart and allow this support to bring a new sense of space and freedom to the upper limbs and spine.

In the afternoon, we will continue to find the support from the contents of our organs by finding the stomach, liver and pancreas that assists in creating spinal freedom and intestinal support which awakens the strong pull of gravity through the pelvis and the legs.

When we become aware of the inner contents of our body we awaken to a new sense of space and volume bringing internal support to our external structure and container.

It is the conscious attention you bring to the practice of yoga that changes your relationship to yourself and others. By awakening new and unfamiliar parts of ourselves we reach into the roots of our human experience and our yoga becomes a fully creative, authentic and life nurturing practice.
