A 3-part workshop at Upper Valley Yoga

What is the point of being in a body? In this three-part series, we will explore the fundamental patterns involved in the practice of yoga, tasting for ourselves the enormous potential held in our own bodies. Each 2-hour workshop will involve a guided practice, based on postures from the Ashtanga tradition, along with seated visualization and breath practices.

Apana, the downward pattern of sensation typically associated with the exhalation and curling-inward forms, is stabilizing to our nervous system and psyche. 
Prana, the upward-rising pattern of sensation typically associated with the inhalation and front-opening forms, has an uplifting and energizing effect on our nervous system and state of mind. 
The true magic of waking up to the world and finding ourselves in a balanced, calm, clear state of equanimity depends on the successful merging of prana and apana. This powerful union is at the heart of all potent yogic practices and holds unfathomable potential.
