YOGA FOR THE SUBTLE BODY WITH CATOR SHACHOY
Saturday September 9th, 3-6pm
When we tune into the subtle energies of the body, we can learn to hold yoga poses with less effort and more ease. This results in going deeper in our practice. Working in this way will facilitate healing of injuries and structural imbalances. The cranial wave is a subtle body pulse. When we recognize this pulse, we are invited into a space of deep calm, and awareness of subtle internal movement. The experience and understanding of the cranial wave and its impact on physiology can invite us into a deeper relationship of body and mind. This workshop offers an introduction to the craniosacral system and how it can inform our yoga practice.
The workshop includes lecture, yoga asana, and hands on partnered cranial touch. We will focus on gentle and supported/ restorative asanas (with a few standing poses) to facilitate direct experience of the cranial wave in one’s own body. Open to all. 6 months’ yoga practice will be helpful.
