Our session will lengthen and engage the core—the innermost sheath of the body, arising from the inner arches of the feet, inner legs, pelvic floor, and musculature along the spine. Through somatic movements, prop work, and skillfully sequenced asanas, we will awaken the core and illuminate the bandhas. This deep internal support will increase ease in all movements, and free the breath rhythm. We will investigate Dharma teachings on mindfulness of the body, and practice meditation as an embodied experience at the true core of the yogic journey.
*A dynamic intermediate practice with modifications to accommodate all experienced practitioners.
