The body is the repository of the physical, mental and emotional tensions we carry. When left unresolved, we often end up “wearing” these tensions rather than releasing them in a healthy manner. Without attention these tensions tend to settle in the weakest points in our body and can manifest as chronic tension and pain, cause poor alignment and health imbalances and perpetuate stressful thinking habits. Using a variety of assisted postures, participants will experience being fully supported in a series of yoga poses which allow you to specifically target imbalanced physical and energetic holding patterns without strain. Through the deep release of these ingrained tensions, participants report measurable shifts in physical capacity, improved physical vitality, greater postural alignment and insight into emotional patterns manifesting as physical imbalance in the body.
- Learn how the body is the mind made visible.
- Understand the basic tenets of Yoga Therapy and how it resolves visible imbalances from subtle and unseen levels.
- Experience a body scan which allows you to discover specific connections between holding in the body and tensions in the mind.
- Experience Yoga Therapy at the wall, with props, and assisted by a partner to very specifically target and release the build-up of subtle energetic tensions in the body and mind.
- Understand how to use your regular asana practice to release holding patterns on an ongoing basis.
In addition to enhancing personal practice, this workshop provides valuable tools and information for yoga teachers, therapists, health professionals and bodyworkers.
