LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
Through focused but playful exploration of the asanas and the breath, we discover where we hold tension, and how we can undo that tension and instead invite freedom and lightness in our bodies.
It is not a method, but a practice. First the quality of our attention must be refined, and the quality of our movement will follow.
“When you bring your full attention to what you are doing, every act can become an act of wholeness and beauty. It is meditation. You cannot forcibly still the mind and body – that is just “doing” something else to not notice yourself. One must slowly, with time and space, let go of the tensions of the body and the busyness of the mind. There is no linear approach to doing this. It requires the willingness to let go, again and again, and start over, again and again. One must accept the wholeness of oneself. No part of you can be left behind. Being still, being quiet, listening – these are some of the most active things we can do!”
