Iyengar Yoga South Bay is proud to present:

Synthesis in the Practice of Asana
A Workshop with Michael Lucey
May 17, 10:00am-12:30pm & 2:00-4:30pm

Picture of Michael Lucey

Our bodies have a front, a back, and two sides. Prashant Iyengar, B.K.S. Iyengar's son, has suggested associating the front body with the analytical and visual mind, the back body with the imaginative and conceptual mind, and the side body with the synthetic or lateral mind, a combination of front and back. In this workshop we will work to understand the relation of body, breath, and mind using these ideas. In the morning session, we will practice standing poses, inversions, and seated poses, including twists. In the afternoon session, we will work again on inversions and also on backward extensions.

Alternatives will be given for those not doing inversions.

This workshop is appropriate for all students with one year's practice of Iyengar yoga.

Cost: $90 for the whole workshop, both morning and afternoon sessions, if payment is received by Friday, May 9, or $125 after May 9.

About Michael

Michael Lucey began studying Iyengar yoga in 1982 while living in England, and from his very first class has been fascinated by the many ways yoga can transform your relation to your body, mind, and breath. Michael currently takes classes from Manouso Manos, and continues his education as a teacher with Gloria Goldberg, Patricia Walden, and Joan White. He has made seven trips to Pune to study with the Iyengar family, most recently in June 2013, and he will be returning to Pune this September. He is certified at the Intermediate Junior III level. Michaelís teaching is clear and informative, with the goal of encouraging students to develop their own ability to explore what yoga has to offer. Along with studying and teaching yoga, Michael is also a professor of comparative literature and French at UC Berkeley.
