Reintegrating the "Western" body in the light of Yoga

January 30-31
9:00 am to 4:00 pm

We'll focus on the Science of a healthy body; a body which is an anatomico-energetic field. Beginning with an overview of the basic Meridian systems of acupuncture, we'll deepen our understanding of the relation between energy pathways and fascial anatomy by exploring dynamic integration exercises and specific relaxation techniques. To reintegrate our bodies in the light of Yoga, throughout the workshop we'll keep in mind the unity of body, mind, emotion, and energy to address how this matrix speaks to yogic ideals.

This workshop is for anyone seeking to renew - or even to initiate - a yoga practice.
Whether your body feels healthy, has some signs of wear or if you're dealing with injury, this workshop will be beneficial for every body.

Shankara's capacity to understand and transmit concepts has developed both through years of giving teacher training courses and by self-analysis of his own personal journey through the traditions that have nourished him.

The following global concepts we'll explore are generally applicable within movement culture:
-The 12 main meridian lines of the body (both conceptually and anatomically).
-How to recognize “blockages” along these lines and how to release these through simple reintegration methodology.
-The different levels of integration, from Gross to Subtle, and how to approach this in a practical way.
-Dealing with chronic pain in yoga, its implications within yoga practice, and how to know when to push through or to hold back.
-The correlation between physical, psychosomatic and emotional patterns.
-Basic exercises for integration.
-For teachers, simple guidelines to help ensure students progress nicely.
