Redefining Practice for the Present Day
This workshop will aim to reinforce the importance of self-responsibility within a yoga practice, and the ability listen - inwards and outwards. We will look at basic physical and energetic alignment principles to better self-adjust.
Type of Event
The circumstances surrounding a yoga practice change over time. Originally a practice passed down from teacher to student one to one, modern yoga has seen large studios with heaving classes with teachers offering manual adjustments to everyone, to small classes with the teacher remaining in the front of the room to teach. Recently the same diversity found in in-person classes have moved to the virtual world, and while the teacher might still give verbal adjustment cues, gone, for now, are the days of close physical contact between student and teacher.
But what is the role of a yoga teacher and adjustments within your personal practice, and why is alignment so important?
This workshop will aim to reinforce the importance of self-responsibility within a yoga practice, and the ability listen - inwards and outwards. We will look at basic physical and energetic alignment principles to better self-adjust. There will be a time for reflection - about relationship between student and teacher, about the yoga practice and one’s self.
These concepts will be held by an overarching focus of integrating intention into a physical practice, to widen the lens on alignment as a whole, rather simply referring to our physicality.
This workshop will be a Jivamukti workshop in nature, meaning that there will be philosophy imbued throughout the entirety of the morning, chanting, rigorous asana as well as pranayama and meditation.
