About the event
Friday, April 22nd 6:00-8:00pm
THE GREAT DEVOTEE: HANUMANASANA
(FRONT SPLITS) Hanumanasana (front splits) symbolizes taking a leap of faith as Hanuman did in service to Lord Rama when he leaped across the ocean to Sri Lanka as told in the ancient text of the Ramayana. When performing this asana, one should meditate on overcoming hurdles by inwardly focusing on the breath, opening the gateway to balance, peace of mind, and a deeper connection to Self.
This workshop will systematically open your hip flexors while creating stability in your hips and pelvis to access increased flexibility and range of motion. Variations for every body will be explored to assist in developing more depth and ease to this advanced asana.
Sat, April 23rd 2:00-4:00pm
MY DIVINE SPINE:
Yogananda Parhmahansa quoted “God is in the Spine”. It is through the spine that we have direct access to the intelligence of the universe. It is the balancing of energies in your spine and the openness of the heart center that can determine the outcome of your spiritual progress.
This workshop is designed to help gain clarity as you learn to support the extension of the spine and develop a radiant presence in the heart. We will use the body as a tool to delve deeper and feel more connected to your spiritual practice.
Sun, Apr 24 2:00-4:00pm
ARCHITECTURE OF A HEADSTAND (or Inner Dimensions of Headstand) “Inversions can be some of the most intimidating yet beneficial of all the asanas. The intention of practicing these postures so consistently is because of their ability to directly tone, strengthen and energize all the systems of the body, inducing vitality and balance. This workshop is for the practitioners beginning their journey with headstand as we will explore the preparatory postures to develop strength and confidence while working into the full expression with ease and trust. All LEVELS are WELCOMED!”
