The Wisdom Body | Online Immersion

June 19 - June 30

REGISTER HERE


The embodiment of wisdom is a time honored process. You can’t push the river and it comes through settling, gaining insight and opening to grace. In this module we gain postural balance and fine articulation of the upper spine, neck and cranium. We re-educate the neural-muscular system and brain pathways by working with the eyes, ears, and brainstem. This allows greater possibility for freedom in movement, feeling, thought and action. Throughout this module we follow along the Eightfold Path of the Buddha, investigating the teachings on impermanence, conditionality (one’s “karma”) and suffering. Through metta practices on loving kindness we practice to dissolve mental fixation, free from extremes that polarize, divide and isolate. In meditation, we yoke to an all pervading intrinsic wisdom, sometimes called “natural mind”. In the teaching practicum at the end of the training, we help students find the language to articulate the yoga experience through sensitivity and mindful precision. We encourage each student to tap their greatest potential in order to teach yoga from a place of clarity, originality and devotion.

Join Tias, Surya, and Djuna in this transformational journey!
