From the Inside Out: A Weekend with Alexandria Crow

Spend a weekend learning about the practice of yoga by looking at the inner workings of yogic philosophy, the body, and the mind so that the practice becomes personal, effective and wise. The practice of yoga is an individual journey that is mostly taught in group format these days. In order to work within the current context with wisdom students must look deeply at their body and mind as it relates to each and every class and all with the philosophy of yoga as a practice at the root. We will begin with learning what a yoga practice is all about from a philosophical standpoint, we will discuss why we're doing asana and what it aims to teach us. We will then look at the nervous system and the deeper layers of the physical body and it's structure as a means to asses what's going on both structurally and mentally. Most students are trapped to some degree in a fight or flight response and will will look at how that impacts the body and the mind as it impacts everything from range of motion to clarity of mind as well as the sensation of pain. Students will then learn from the inside out about how their personal internal structure and range of motion relates to the postures most commonly offered in classes. They will learn their own unique range of motion, how to interpret physical sensation signals, and how their mind interacts the bodily sensations which ultimately can lead to skilled choices which when refined can lead to a productive practice with less injury. Each person's skeleton, musculature, connective tissue, lifestyle and injuries cause a unique situation that once uncovered will create a wiser approach to postures offered in classes as well as how to know when a certain pose just isn't meant for you leading to a practice with tremendous depth and effectiveness.

$60 per session, or $210 for whole weekend
