Embodied Asana 1: Breath & Movement

Previous Dates:

16 February - 16 March 2021 | Tuesdays, 10am-1pm

In this in-depth course, we will unpack and explore what it means to practice asana in an embodied way. We’ll interrogate our motivations and intentions for practicing asana, and begin to build an idea of how we can be guided deep into our practise via breath and movement.

We will develop, deepen and refine our asana practices, exploring the intuitive relationship between breath and asana; deepen our familiarity with key postures, and develop our understanding of breath as a tool within asana practice to achieve greater embodiment and awareness.
