Vayus & Asana

Vayus & Asana

Led by: Doug Keller

From March 20, 2016 at 12:00 pm until March 19, 2016 at 9:00 pm at Dumbo

Key language for this is the ‘Vayus,’ which give us insight into our own state of being. Sunday’s training will center on explaining the role and relevance of the Vayus in yoga practice, and incorporating that understanding into the biomechanical principles covered on Saturday for a user-friendly and insightful approach to asana practice that integrates movement, breath, self-awareness and feeling as we move through fascial planes of prana. The session from 12-4 will cover the relationship of the Vayus to lower body and sacral/spinal concerns; the 6-9 session will cover the shoulders, shoulder blades and neck in upper body work.0/00 (after 3/13)
