Saturday, March 23 – Sunday, March 24
with Monica Voss and Tama Soble
Spend a weekend exploring all aspects of the spine – its anatomy, connection to the breath, energy, movement and texture and the imagery that has traditionally supported it. To tease out our previous knowledge of the spine and assimilate new ideas, we’ll use lecture, asana practice, discussion, partner work, breathing practice, relaxation techniques and meditation.
Friday, April 5, with Tama Soble
The psoas muscle is powerful and intelligent. It lies deep in the torso connecting spine, pelvis and legs. Understanding how to release, stretch and strengthen the psoas can help us to integrate and stabilize the entire physical body and free the respiratory system. We will explore postures and breathing practices to deepen our awareness and understanding of the role of the psoas.
