Yoga & Movement Medicine: Primal Patterns
April 24, 2021 - May 1, 2021
Explore mindful movement through space, off the mat, and towards your primal instincts. In this all-levels workshop, students will explore movement patterns that are seldom found in ‘traditional’ yoga practice, yet are vital to moving well in the world. This workshop provides a bridge between classical yoga asana and functional movement patterns that cultivate confidence, strength, coordination, resilience & ease within a life that’s always in motion. Come ready to play!
Learning objectives include:
- primal movement patterns
- bodyweight training
- the treasures of ground & floor-based practice
- locomotion, transitions through levels (supine -> sitting -> 4s -> feet -> hands + dynamic balance)
- tensional integrity or floating compression
- mobility vs flexibility
- essential elements of coordination & adaptability
