Rhythmic Vinyasa - Synching with the Natural Pulse
Saturday, July 12 — 11:00am - 1:00pm
One of the core definitions of "vinyasa" is as a wave, a rhythmic cycle. Within yoga, understanding these cycles is key to creating flow within one's body and life. We'll do a practice dedicated to rhythmic syncopation within the body to help you understand the healing power of rhythm. Based on T. Krishnamacharya's teachings, Ayurveda, and Tantra, we'll learn methods to embody rhythmic vinyasa at all levels of practice as a technique of optimal flow to a way of life healing.
