Yoga with Tao: October 15. 7:30pm Mink Mountain
Tuning the Body, Breath, and Mind
In this special workshop, you will connect and come to recognize your body through smooth and simple movements in typical and non-typical yoga Asanas. The class will integrate Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy to help release tension (and pains by those seeking release). You will gradually switch your focus from external chaos toward internal peace. The whole process is a full yogic kriya/cleansing path--healing and washing the inner body and mind, re-organizing the inner body and mind to create more space, and recharging vital energy. The hope is to eventually cease the active mind, return to the base of yoga, create balance and unity within, and to allow energy to flow naturally.
