Deepening Your Practice with Tias Little
four In-Depth Workshops
November 11-12, 2017
Tending to the Senses In Yoga
Saturday November 11: 11:30-1:30
It is through the senses that we take in all of life’s experience. Yet in yoga, one is encouraged to draw the senses inward, in the way that a tortoise draws in its limbs. In yoga this leads to wisdom and profound states of awareness, compared to an unwavering flame. In this class we will practice some of the ancient yoga techniques to absorb the senses inward. Through meditation, SATYA practice and yoga postures we will mindfully infuse the body with prana through the eyes, ears, nose and pores of the skin.
Moving into Stillness
Saturday November 11: 2:30-5:00
This class includes movement with precision of alignment. In the alchemy of our practice we unite stillness with movement, whether in seated meditation, flowing through postures or doing unwinding movements on the floor (SATYA). This leads to states of sublime awareness and feather fine concentration.
Bones, Breath and Balance
Sunday November 12: 10:00-12:30
As we age the bones become lighter and less stable. In the spiritual traditions of India and China, the bones and the marrow are thought to house the deep life force. In this class we practice standing and supine poses, in order to tap the bone energy and move from the body’s deepest essence.
The Ocean of the Heart
Sunday November 12: 2:00-4:30
In parts of the yoga tradition, it is said that the whole universe is set within the ocean of the heart. This class explores the heart as a metaphor for
the depth consciousness. In practice we open the shoulders and chest in order to expand the breath waves within the ocean of the heart.
