Led Primary series is traditionally counted (in Sanskrit) in a rhythmic fashion to invoke a sense of flow and concentration as we breathe and move in a unified manner. This will be a Full Led Primary Series class from start to finish in celebration and honor of the immeasurable lineage of Ashtanga yoga. Time will also be taken afterward for discussion and Q&A.
The paradox of backbending is that we must be firm and soft at the same time, uniting the energy of strength and surrender. Learn the basic components of backbending with integrity to the natural flow of the body. In addition, learn to understand the concept of active release. When actively releasing, we experience the use of grounding mechanisms to establish the downward flow of energy while fully utilizing the breath to then be able to expand and deepen. In this workshop learn the foundational techniques that allow the body to find its depth and strength while at the same time letting go. For all levels.
