Yoga Therapy for Psoas Awakening
A gentle exploration to free the psoas while creating stability in the pelvis. The psoas is a core movement and posture muscle; dance, speech/song, and awakening are profound aspects of its function. Because the fight/fright/freeze mechanism is set in the psoas, the practices also can release and integrate imbedded impressions of stress and trauma. Ideal if back and hip and knee issues. This is a safe release-work approach for the next step on your path in mind, body and spirit.
Gentle Yoga & Meditation as Doorway to the Subtle Realms
All levels and abilities welcome. Through easy postures, yogic breathing, chanting and meditation, the practice opens the subtle energy channels to ground, clear and refine. The practice develops two important pranas (subtle energies) in our being: Apana Prana (letting go and grounding) and Udana Prana. Udana Prana governs positive evolutionary energy in consciousness, spinal strength, enthusiasm and self-expression. It guides awareness to profound experiences of nature, the astral and causal planes, giving you insight into those realms and helping you to attune to your inner guidance. We will practice on the beach or on the dock connecting intimately with the lake and her creatures, yoking inner and outer nature.
