As we move through life, we tend to focus on what is being seen: our achievements, failures, how we look, what we own, and the external reality. In this outcome-oriented way of living, we forget our centers and depth. We lose ourselves, our energy, our feeling of safety, balance, and orientation.
This workshop is an invitation to redirect our attention to the place where things begin, the core of our being – THE SPINE. We will connect with the spine from anatomical as well as imaginative-energetic perspective. Using different methods such as Yoga, meditation, Feldenkrais and journaling, we will deepen the connection we have with our spine, unlock it and see if that will assist us to walk through our life with more integrity, flexibility and liveliness.
Open to all levels, all bodies and all spines.
A full commitment to the whole 2 weeks period is necessary in order for the process to unfold in its full depth.
Week 1: Connecting with our spine
– Anatomy of the spine and its movement possibilities.
– What is the image we have about our own spine? What is our relationship with it?
– Correct effort distribution throughout the spine in the yoga practice.
– Increasing movement availability in the spine.
Week 2: Unlocking the subtle energy spine and integration
– The central energy channels: Ida, Pingala and Sushumna.
– The 7 energy centers on the spinal cord – The Chakras.
– How does the spine connect to our environment?
– How can we bring change to our life and the life of others through our spines?
