Moving from the Organs

SEPTEMBER 23-27, 2024
Mon-Fri, 10:30-1:30 & 2:30-5:30

5 days / 30 h workshop in Rochester NY with Judith Hanson Lasater

We often focus on practicing our poses from the spine, arms, and legs. But the ancient teachings of yoga also dealt with opening and quieting the organs of the body, like the heart, kidneys and liver that are found in the “kunda” or vessel holding these organs. During this workshop we will focus on specific poses that create a healthy balance for the organs in the chest and abdomen, as well as explore the theories of why they work. All types of poses will be studied, including backbends, inversions, forward bends and twists. We will also spend some time on specific therapeutic applications that will be immediately applicable to ourselves and to our students.

We will begin each day with a focus intention and then go directly to practicing Active poses. In the second session of the day, we will focus on a Quiet Practice – Restorative yoga, meditation, and pranayama. Throughout the workshop we will return our awareness to stabilizing and balancing from the inside, as well as focusing on how to teach others to do so.
