The New Wave of Yoga: 5-Day Intensive
In the last few years, rigid approaches to yoga practices have been replaced by a more exploratory approach to movement and evidence-based understandings of how the body heals, strengthens, and stretches. Michael Stone and Kathryn Bruni Young will offer a re-exploration of yoga (movement, breathing, psychology, philosophy) starting from the ground up.
Type of Event
9am to 11am - Asana and Movement Practices with Kathryn
11am to 12pm - Closing postures with Michael
12pm to 1:30pm - Lunch
1:30pm to 3:30pm - Meditation and Yoga-Sutra Explorations with Michael
3:30pm to 4:30pm - Finishing postures with Kathryn
This five day workshop will combine: asana, pranayama, functional physiology, and strength work. Kathryn will be teaching yoga and movement possibilities in the morning with Michael completing each morning with inversions, closing postures and pranayama. Michael will begin the afternoons with meditation instruction, followed by lectures on contemporary ways of understanding and practicing (and articulating) yoga philosophy using the language of psychology, and then Kathryn will lead a restorative yoga practice to end the day.
And all of this great material will be shared in the context of community and discussion.
This course is open to students of all backgrounds. Teachers looking for new forms of inspiration and clear methods for communicating alignment and mindfulness in their classes are encouraged to join.
