Day 2: Getting Grounded with Standing Pose Series
AM: Standing Pose Series benefits and methodology
– standing poses are used to help strengthen the legs, support the hips and lower back and offer an experience of being grounded in your own body. By playing with and against the forces of gravity we are able to activate various musculature of the lower compartments and feel more connected to our core and root. This is a visceral understanding of the concepts of being grounded which sets us up for meditation
PM: Meditation, The Yoga Nidra of Life and Hands On Assists of Standing Poses
Day 3: Arm Balances & Inversions
AM: This mixed level workshop talks through the foundations of practicing and teaching arm balances and inversions. These step by step foundational principles create safety and solid grounding from the ground up before we go into inverted play. The session unfolds to experimenting with varying degrees of poses so that everyone feels that there is a plethora of optional modifications that can be shared with students with a wide range of abilities and experience.
For advanced practitioners, we will explore gravity surfing and how to teach advanced inversions effectively.
PM: Fire Ceremony
This closing ceremony takes us out into nature where we will call in the sacred grandfather fire and bring his songs with gifts from the earth and our hearts. We will learn how to gather ceremonial gifts and how to teach out with our honest prayers through song.
This is a sacred ceremony and we only invite those who are serious about experiencing the rites of humanity’s first gift.
