BEYOND ASANA

I AM THAT – YOGA & CHRISTINA GAGNIER: 160hr Student Immersion

Finding YOUR Yoga will inevitably mean exploring beyond the 4 corners of your Yoga mat. When you move beyond the tangible, the physical, the impermanent self and discover an embodied, energetic and connected one, things start to shift. In relationship. In work. In life.

Commencing in 2020, we explore Yoga beyond your physical Asana practice in a160hr part-time immersion, facilitated by Christina Gagnier and supported by a diverse group of experienced teachers that , in separate, individual modules, will explore all 4 paths of Yoga: Raja, Jnana, Karma and Bhakti and how to bring them into your day to day life for more balance, connection and embodiment.

DETAILS

SUMMARY

The human body is more than just muscles, tissue and bones. According to yoga philosophy, it is a microcosm of the whole universe. Often, there is a gap between how we practice asana and how we meditate. To be a nondual practioner, we should meet all the systems of our bodies and integrate them into the conversation of a yoga pose. This module will work to bring asana and meditation together to support presence and a felt sense of the universal consciousness through connection to our anatomy.
In this module you will learn to:
– Work with the different systems of the body to support wholeness and presence in asana
– Understand how each system supports movement and create new possibilities in asana through transitions
– Learn to feel and understand the skin, bones, fluids, fascia, endocrine system, primal midline, embryological anatomy and developmental movement patterns that support your body in yoga.
