In this 100 percent experiential workshop, Ingrid will share how to dramatically increase ease and flow in your yoga practice by integrating principles based on the Alexander Technique, a famous approach to movement education that has often been called Western Zen. Like yoga, the Alexander Technique is all about the quest for effortlessness and inner calm. By introducing the two disciplines to each other, each of them deepens and becomes more rewarding.
Join Ingrid to discover how the Alexander Technique’s approach to somatic self-awareness can improve all your yoga asanas as well as your meditative practices. You will explore using specific thought processes to release unconscious tensions in your body, the critical role that the neck and hip joints play in fostering tension or ease, and how to move more easily by releasing these joints. You will also learn how to continually initiate, moment by moment, more freedom of movement in everything you do.
