Dynamic Gentle Yoga Weekend Intensive & Teacher Training: MASTERING INTEROCEPTION -- THE KEY to YOUR YOGA
Science now reveals that the deepest benefits of yoga come from developing interoception—internal awareness. Studies show that slow, meditative yoga does something different to your nervous system: It helps build proprioception (body-in-space awareness) and interoception (mind-body relationship). WE BUILD INTEROCEPTION by paying attention to momentary fluctuations in bodily sensations, purposefully, non-judgmentally…without any need to change or fix anything. This is the “secret sauce” to Dynamic Gentle Yoga! –what makes it so transformative. SLOW YOGA trains the respiratory musculature, the vagus nerve, heart rate variability, interoception (which may correlate with empathy), and the relaxation response. The “rest and digest” part of the nervous system needs to train. This kind of training or practice requires your mindful participation. THIS WEEKEND, we explore three special aspects of the practice: **Developing interoception while engaging in an innovative strengthening sequence **Investigating energy levels, practicing six different pranayama techniques, and **Encountering your radiant core in a seemless Gentle Yoga Vinyasa. **The teacher training on Sunday (for yoga teachers & students aspiring to be teachers)lays a keystone in the wall of your Dynamic Gentle Yoga Teacher tool box—developing the ability to guide smooth transitions. Interoception builds when the mind continuously attends inward. Teachers will master the techniques of guiding a practice that transcends the discursive mind. THIS STYLE is unique. Otherwise, you would already be doing this! Come and experience for yourself a practice that empowers you (and your students, if you’re a teacher) to have a new relationship with yoga. Explore a meditative technique to generate a practice that is truly yours—unique, accessible to all, and empowering. SEE INDIVIDUAL WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS. Friday Eve-Sunday, Feb 23-25: Enjoy one or all 3 Master Classes & Sunday Teacher Training (The Power of Smooth Transitions) at Discounted Fees (Early Bird and Complete Weekend). **FOR Students of ALL LEVELS.
