the practice. the workout. with heather palmer, august 19 + 20, 12-2pm

The Practice. Saturday, 8.19. 12-2pm.  

Heather will lead a two hour workshop that moves through asana, pranayama, and meditation. The Practice will include postures to strengthen and access the back body, specifically the upper spine, like puppy pose, camel, locust and full locust. It will transition toward releasing the back body and lengthening through the spine in forward folds and deep hip openers. It moves seamlessly through extremes of backbends and forward bends, hip openers and inversions. The movement and transitions will be based on imagination: you will learn new transitions and be challenged by new postures. While all aspects of the physical body will be accessed, the concentration is the comprehensive practice, a unified view of the body as a complex, connected system. All levels are welcome, and Heather will provide variations for practitioners from beginner to advanced, in every area of the body.

The Workout. Sunday, 8.20. 12-2pm.

“The Workout” is designed to broaden and challenge the yoga practitioner from rigid thinking and rigid, prescribed movement. It consists of high repetition movement that strengthens minor and often overlooked muscles in the body. It surprises the practitioner because he/she never knows what is coming--this places a high value on one’s own intelligence and ability to adapt. One example of such a movement would be a low lunge twist to lizard, but instead of doing this movement once and moving on, “The Workout” returns to the movement for twenty repetitions or more, allowing the mindbody to remain in one place long enough to soak the movement in. In such physically demanding situations, the mind sometimes enters a meditative state because it must stop producing its own internal stimuli. Think “runner’s high.” This is a workshop for those whose yoga practice leaves them a little bored or feels a little too easy.
