Yoga, Sound and the Body of Light Series
Light on the Central Channel of the Spine – Friday: 2:00-5:00 PM
In yoga the spine is thought to be the primary pathway for the flow of consciousness. The spine has many beautiful names such as the Lustrous Channel, the Path of the Sun and the Radiant Channel. In this class, we practice lengthening the spine and filling it with the light of prana. We do this by lengthening the muscles that attach directly to the spine while making the vertebral ligaments and discs more buoyant. We practice supine, seated and standing movements. In pranayama and meditation we draw breath into the central channel of the spine.
Restorative Yoga—Nourishing Bone, Blood and Breath – Friday 6:00-8:00 PM
This class guides students in poses that are designed to reduce fatigue and stress buried in the body. By the application of supported postures, the aim of this class is to soothe the nervous system, empty strain and holding in the organic body and calm the mind. This class aims to optimize the flow of prana in the body, rejuvenating all the soft tissues of the body.
Yoga for the Feet, Knees, Hip Joints and Low Back – Saturday 9:00-12:00 PM
In this class we focus on stretching and strengthening the feet, legs and hips. We begin with the feet, as they are the foundation to the temple of the body. We practice strengthening the foot arches in order to support the knees. By increasing stability in your knees, you will have greater physical vitality, stamina and “staying power”. Since all postural balance and centering occurs in the hips, we will then strengthen and stretch the core musculature of the hips and low back. This class is a remarkable journey through the foundational structures of the body.
Vibration, Sound and the Inner Ear – Saturday: 2:00-5:00 PM
In yoga it is thought that the entire universe and the body itself is made up of vibration. All that vibrates produces sound currents that flow like rivers. In this class animate the channels of the body through breath, sound and movement. Not only the sound OM, but numerous other healing sounds open up the channels of the subtle body. Come prepared to feel how alignment in postures allows you to feel the flow of vibration and how the resonance and rhythm of sacred sound has specific effects on the chakras.
