Energy and information in the body become stagnant when we sit in our joints and use old compensatory patterns to stabilize us. There's so much to do and explore once we arrive in a posture that can change the outcome of our practice over time. In this workshop we will learn to implement angles of geometry and practices of folding and unfolding joints to provide personal insight and greater potential in our bodies through our lives.

Join Caryn Antos O'Hara in a workshop that utilizes movement, breath work, and discussion to unpack the Ayurvedic concepts of prana and vata management. Prana, a sub-category of vata, is the energetic layer responsible for all movement including intellect and vital functions. We cannot affect prana without strengthening or weakening vata energy.
Sure. You've done pranayama in class and know it's beneficial for mind/body connection. But do you know how it heals the body? Do you know you know that it can also create havoc?Prana is the energetic layer responsible for all movement including intellect and vital functions. This experiential weekend explains why we simply cannot live in the seat of awareness without the full spectrum of knowledge about pranic energy.
If prana is out of balance, we feel it. Prana’s effects begin subtly. Only the practitioner who knows what to look for notices the effects before they progress to later stages of dis-ease. This program will give you tools to notice the signs early and medicinal practices to consciously incorporate over the long haul.
The more we know about how it feels to be pranically out of sorts, the better we are at addressing it at the onset. Whereby, we heal ourselves before the feeling of imbalance is misunderstood and potentially becomes a means to stay “high”, active, or connected to Spirit.
Both days offer lecture, practices of pranayama, vata-balancing yoga, and Q&A.
Bring water and tools you need if you’re a note-taker. Wear movement-geared clothes.
When: October 14, 1-4pm and October 15, 1-4pm
Investment: $75 for one/ $125 for both days
