Vinyasa : experiencing the union of body and breath
Vinyasa yoga has become a general term for any practice of asana, or yoga posture, in which postures are linked together through a series of flowing movements, synchronized with and informed by a deep, rhythmic breath. The linking of breath and body, when practiced regularly, has a detoxifying effect and leads to increased physical vitality and profound clarity of mind. In this workshop we will:
*Set the stage - beginning with an homage to the teachers of the past and a brief historical contextualization of the vinyasa practice.
*Awaken the Body - exploring various techniques with the intention of gaining an awareness of the subtle patterns of energy in the body. Our asana practice will incorporate some of these techniques and flow through a series of postures culled from the ashtanga vinyasa sequencing, with an emphasis on mindful, rhythmic transitions from one posture to the next.
*Still the Mind - finishing with a breath awareness technique designed to further settle the mind, and a lengthy savasana.This ashtanga and vinyasa style yoga practice offers a vigorous flow of poses. Teaching and modifications will be offered in preparation for enjoying a continuous flow in the latter part of the workshop. Some yoga experience and basic knowledge of postures will be helpful, but not necessary. Participants can expect to hold downward facing dog comfortably and either have experience with, or a will to experience, sun-salutations, inversions, and back bends. Modifications will be offered to suit individual needs.
Adele Gale's practice began over 30 years ago in Boulder, CO. It has wound its way through Hatha Yoga with the Light on Yoga Society, Ashtanga Yoga with Norman Allen, David Swenson, Ranjani Cobo, and Richard Freeman, and for the past six years, Nada Yoga - the yoga of sound - with Russill Paul. She has been teaching ashtanga and vinyasa yoga since 1997. Adele is the owner of Midcoast Yoga Shala in Damariscotta, ME where she has been teaching for the past eight years.
