Workshop with Lisa Petersen
Building Stability, Cohesion and Integrity in Yoga
Sunday August 19th 10am - 5pm
“When we practice yoga from an interior perspective, the body becomes mindful, the mind becomes embodied.” Donna Farhi
What is your Yoga practice built on? One key foundation is the relationship to the ground, gravity, and space. Every pose is a balance pose as we engage our muscles and bones to optimise the way we carry our weight. With each breath, we refine the balance through the centre of the bones and subtly realign our structure. It’s a dynamic dance whether we are in movement or stillness.
This workshop explores how to consciously engage the support of gravity to allow a buoyant rebound into space. This action, called yielding creates impeccable alignment and a sequential flow of force and energy through the body. It simultaneously creates the optimum conditions for breathing to happen. In particular, we will look at how the relationship from the feet to the pelvis in standing poses creates an intrinsic stability which allows the spine become long and light. We will also explore how the act of conscious yielding relates to the breath.
This workshop will include some lecture, guided movement enquiry, applied experiential anatomy, yoga asana, slow vinyasa and breathwork. Suitable for students from all streams of yoga with over one year practice.
