True Awakeness is an Open Body: A Masterful Yoga Weekend with Sofia Diaz
May 21–23, 2010
In the modern world, it’s easy to become estranged from the body. Join us for this weekend of yoga practice as we reconnect freshly with the body’s awareness, widening our view of true perception and liberating the fundamental emotional knots in our embodiments as men and women. We will concentrate on directing our breathing into postures that open yogic channels of clarity, insight, and sense perception and practice both flowing sequences and steadying postures (asanas). We will also explore communal and partner exercises, sharing the fruits of our practice together. Instruction will be tailored specifically to the level of those participating; all levels are welcome.
