We are very pleased to welcome Michael Lucey back to lead another workshop. His teaching was well received by everyone who was able to come last year, so save the date!

About the workshop

What are the distinguishing qualities of attention and awareness? How do we bring them together to cultivate a state of attentive awareness? This elusive state of attentive awareness is what B.K.S. Iyengar has taught us to aim for in the practice of asana and pranayama. What is its flavor and what are its components?

In the morning session, we will work actively with standing poses and backward extensions. In the afternoon session, we will work in a more inward way with the seated poses and inversions, leading towards pranayama. Our goal will be to learn how systematic practice can allow us to get a taste of the "continuous and uninterrupted flow of attentive awareness" that is the heart of yoga.

This workshop is appropriate for everyone with one year of Iyengar yoga practice. Familiarity with inversions is suggested, however, alternatives will be given if needed.

If you have any questions, please contact Jito: jitoyumibe@sbcglobal.net
