Everything You Need to Know
This workshop’s material is inspired by Judith H. Lasater, my teacher who is teaching this topic internationally and now it is my honor and pleasure to share my knowledge with you.
We often focus on practicing our poses from the spine, arms, and legs. But the ancient teachings of yoga also dealt with the opening and quieting of the organs of the body, like the heart, kidneys, and liver, that are found in the “Kunda” or vessel holding these organs. During this immersion, we will focus on specific poses that create a healthy balance for the organs in the chest and abdomen, as well as explore the theories of why they work. All types of poses will be studied, including backbends, inversions, forward bends, and twists. We will also spend some time on specific therapeutic applications that will be immediately applicable to ourselves and to our students.
What will we practice and learn? We shall explore how yoga poses influence our internal organs and how can we decrease, increase or release energy by moving from inside out and not only from our skeleton. Asana is about positioning the body in such a way that creates balance and harmony in the organs and in our nervous system. We will be covering also the brain as an organ and not only the kidneys, the liver, the intestines, and everything else that lives in our kundha, the vessel.
We will begin with a focus intention and then go directly to practicing Active poses. We will also focus on a Quiet Practice – some Restorative yoga, meditation, and pranayama. Throughout the workshop, we will focus on the sensations of the poses and how they affect our overall health.
Who is this open to? Open to all dedicated yoga practitioners.
