REALLY HIP OPENINGS FOR THE HIPS

A Pleasant Exploration of Gentle Methods To Open the Hips Taught by David Swenson

SUNDAY | MARCH 4, 2018 | 11:30 AM-1:30 PM

Tight hips can cause problems in other areas such as the knees and back. David has devised an approach of exploring the hips through slow and gentle movements, stable holding of postures and deep breathing which all combine to bring greater openness to the hips without forcing or pushing. To create stability, David will share methods of activating one area in order to relax another. This balanced approach is both safe and effective and can be applied to other regions of the body as well. As always, David will manage to make this an enjoyable experience. Bring those tight hips in for a tune-up!

THE MARRIAGE OF SHIVA AND SHAKTI–FINDING HARMONY IN DUALITY

Taught by Tim Miller
SATURDAY | MARCH 3, 2018 | 4:00-6:00 PM
The practice of Yoga offers us an extremely concentrated experience of duality, and the opportunity to find balance between opposing, yet complimentary forces. Asana and Pranayama are collectively referred to as Hatha Yoga – literally “the union of the Sun and the Moon” – the Sun representing the active, masculine force and the Moon symbolizing the passive, feminine quality. Throughout the practice of Hatha Yoga, we encounter constant duality – the inhale and the exhale, extension and flexion, right side and left side, mind and body, effort and surrender, etc. Throughout all of the changing circumstances we encounter during practice, we are challenged to be stable yet comfortable and exercise intelligent effort coupled with appropriate surrender. Patanjali, author of the Yoga Sutras, suggests that if we are able to cultivate these skills, “Tatah dvanda anabhighathah” – then we are no longer disturbed by duality. In this class we will explore the myriad manifestations of duality that the practice of Asana and Pranayama provide for us and learn how we can begin to harmonize these forces to create balance. Central to this process is the conscious use of breath to link body and mind, facilitate more stability and receptivity and move with greater ease and intelligence. We will explore the notion of “Reciprocal Inhibition” – the complimentary actions of opposing muscles to provide both greater strength and flexibility and the importance of the interplay of pose/counterpose. In addition, we will learn the practical application of Mula Bandha and Uddhiyana Bandha to develop both Roots and Wings in our Asana and Pranayama practice.

A DROP OF NECTAR: INTERNAL FORMS, BREATH AND MUDRA

Taught by Richard Freeman and Mary Taylor

FRIDAY | MARCH 2, 2018 | 4:00-6:00 PM
True nectar is said to be composed of compassion, insight and humor. It is released from the root of the palate when inhaling pattern of prana and the exhaling pattern of apana unite to form mulabandha into a proper mudra. Ashtanga Vinyasa is the continuous cultivation of this fine ambrosial drink achieved by following a thread of its flavor through and between postures, breaths, thoughts and techniques. In this class we will explore opening and then releasing vivid, internal, organic anatomy patterns in sync with the breath. This method fully uses the imagination to feel complementary full body patterns which, when interfaced with each other, open the central channel. The repeated practice of these internal forms eventually frees us from that very same imagination bringing technical skills to life with a taste of kindness and humor.
