When we think about yoga asana quite often we picture a set of shapes that can be made if we follow certain alignment principles. There's no doubt that this can be really beneficial for many practitioners, in particular beginners. However so often it can have the result of alienating and frustrating students when they feel that they are not able to arrive at the perfect place.
Neurologically speaking this packs quite a powerful punch. Does the perfect place actually exist?
The creative teacher (and practitioner) is able to craft a practice that feels inclusive and yet profound for all levels of physical ability. The missing part of the jigsaw is often even a basic understanding of the neuroscience of movement. Creative movement, physical activity, spontaneity, relaxation, self awareness, rhythm and music can all help the practitioner access states of deeper listening.
When we think beyond asana, beyond the shape as a definitive we are able to place more importance on the awareness as the process which goes well beyond words and definitives. It becomes elevated, joyful and creates powerful change in the brain and body.
This workshop will help you to understand how to move in a way that feels really good, offering tools and new perspectives with the latest discoveries of cognitive and affective neuroscience.
An absolute must for all teachers and practitioners interested in understanding how to access a richer and more profound state.
