Yoga Workshop with Alice Kennedy
July 11-13, 2014
There is no doubt that yoga is a complex and unique way of looking at our bodies and the world. There are so many very valuable ways to understand yoga, learn yoga, embody yoga, and teach yoga. What if we kept it simple, and gently asked the shapes and forms of the poses to whisper to us exactly what we need to know at that time. What if a pose, however complex or simple, had in it a blueprint of understanding in an of itself? This weekend we will work together to understand these poses and what they may teach us. Be prepared to have fun!
