Nourishing the Throat Chakra: Thursday 7 May
In light of the coronavirus, our airways are most vulnerable to infection. For this reason, it is of upmost importance to increase the flow of blood and lymph through your neck and throat.
This is an in-depth course focused on how to promote health and vital function in the region of your upper trunk, throat and jaw. We practice SATYA, asana and pranayama to tonify the muscles, connective tissues and glands of the throat. Anatomically, we study the lymphatic tissue that surrounds the neck and throat as well as the thyroid gland and cervical musculature. We do bridge poses, the lion pose, fish and shoulder stand with focus on jalandhara band (the throat seal).
SPREADING THE CANOPY OF THE LUNGS: TUESDAY 5 MAY (THIS EVENT HAS PASSED)
Lung tissue bears resemblance to the branches and leaves of a great tree. In this time of the coronavirus, our lungs are susceptible to infiltration. How can we foliate our lung tree in a yoga practice to improve circulation and build defenses?
This is an in-depth course on the motility of the lung relative to the diaphragm, intercostal muscles and ribs. We will see that the branchlets of the lungs terminate in feather fine capillary beds, the primary site where the body absorbs prana. Learn how to safely expand your lungs through pranayama, SATYA, supported asana and physiology ball release. Anatomically, we investigate the pathway of prana into the body, detailing the motion of the heart-lung pair, the bronchioles, alveoli, thoracic lymph nodes and pulmonary veins.
Both of these workshops will start with a presentation, with time for Q&A, followed by an in-depth SATYA practice. The workshops will be taught LIVE on Zoom.
Upon completion of this workshop, you will receive a Yogacampus Certificate of Completion.
