Posture, Pranayama, & Power Animals

Yoga postures facilitate ease in the body.  Pranayama awakens us to inner energies. Totem/Power Animals connect us to the realm of nature.  In a shamanic journey, power animals can also show up to help us connect to our inherent qualities or to those we need to incorporate into our lives. 

This 2-hour workshop integrates yoga and shamanic practice.

Posture and guided breathing relax the nervous system and awaken the mind to inner space.  The rhythmic beat of the shamanic drum then guides students through a journey where they may discover a totem animal whose characteristics awaken an inner ability (power).

 

No prior experience with yoga or shamanism is necessary.  Everyone welcome!

Asana at the Wall

A wall is a universal, readily available prop, and its use is not limited to inversions and restorative postures.

Using a wall during our asana practice can teach us about our alignment (or lack thereof) as we do our poses.

 

A wall also provides stability and much needed security for some of us.  Perhaps most importantly, familiar poses require different muscular actions when done at the wall, thus assisting the body to learn new patterns.

During the workshop you can expect to experience the following: sacral & shoulder alignment & stability, core strengthening, vertical stacking, and balance postures using the wall as a tool for support and exploration.

 

The session is suitable for beginning and experienced practitioners.
