Embodied Mind: The Nervous System, Yoga, Tantra, and Practice (Arlington)

The nervous system is a vast and complex aspect of our human experience that keeps in constant communication with all our bodily systems, and researchers and scientists are finding new information about it nearly every day! It works most intimately with the endocrine (hormonal) and immune systems, the most subtle of all the bodily systems. Yogis of old knew this, prioritized methods to manipulate it, and designed their lives in ways to access its deeper powers. The nervous system operates both in ways we cannot control (but be in relationship with) as well as in ways we can most definitely manipulate. In this five-hour immersion we'll look at maps of the nervous system, plus ways yogis historically looked to and worked with it to help us better understand its complexity. We'll study its parts anatomically, as well as engage in practices that offer experiential insight into how it functions in each one of us. We'll explore a variety of practices designed to touch the multiple variables with which we can or cannot directly engage. Using methods such as asana, pranayama, meditation, big and small group discussions, as well as other techniques, we'll take a deep dive into experiencing and learning about the gifts of the nervous system. Open to any student with interest, and special focus for those with some yoga experience and/or those who have completed a 200-hour teacher training.

The Royal Postures and the Central Channel (Arlington)

An afternoon immersion with Theresa Murphy. Inverting one’s body can provide great health benefits: support for lymphatic fluids, restfulness for the heart, decompression of the spine, a shift one’s perspective, provide arm and shoulder strength and opening, calm the mind, improve sleep, and more. In this inversion immersion we’ll explore in great detail the two most classical ways to invert according to the teachings of Hatha Yoga. Discussion and study of mid-line training, exploration of the subtle body's central channel, preparatory asana, group discussion, and partner work will be included to support our experience of practicing these maha asanas. Many modern day yoga teachers avoid teaching these gems not without good reason! Theresa will lay the ground work and cover techniques to aid the skillful learning and teaching of inverting, safely. Inspired anatomy study will be included, focusing on the parts used to support the inverted shapes. Turn your world upside down, in a good way. Open to any student with interest, and special focus for those with some yoga experience and/or those who have completed a 200-hour teacher training.
