SATYA 1 – Senory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement
8:30-5:30 pm daily/Last day ends at 1:00 PM
Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement
Yoga is a process of remapping the body’s energetic field and aligning it with the greater force of the universe. In order to heighten awareness and increase physical vitality, there is much evidence today on the effectiveness of slow movements, done in isolation and without force. In this course, we practice fine articulated movement, designed to build somatic intelligence, proprioceptive awareness and neuroplasticity. The SATYA movements replenish the body by “soaking” the tissues. Done mostly on the floor, SATYA involves sliding, gliding, stretching and unwinding movements. The movements serve to reduce fatigue, pump the viscera and align the vertebral column. This training covers the foundational movements that comprise the SATYA practice. Whether to restore your own body or to learn the key principles of the SATYA practice for the classroom, this course is a journey through the sensorimotor system. Practicing the SATYA movements brings mobilization to the joints and bi-lateral symmetry to the right and left sides of the body. Each day we follow the SATYA sequences with standing poses, twists, sidebends and inversions to build stabilization for the core tissues of the body.
