Foundations of Yoga and Meditation with Katharine Kaufman: CANCELLED
March 16–18, 2012
All possibilities begin with our posture, accompanied by a little curiosity. When we investigate our innermost stillness shared with gentle, slow movement, we come to understand and release tensions, holdings and patterns. Along with our breath, we move from the ground-up, developing respect and care for our practice. Through a variety of classical and original yoga postures, we will explore under-rhythms of breath, mysterious bhandas and gaze. Soothing restorative yoga, lighthearted partner work and a few challenging balance postures will add to the mix. Open to beginning yoga and meditation students, as well as those who want to deepen their foundational practice.
