STEPHANIE QUIRK WORKSHOP - ASANA AND PHILOSOPHY - Sunday July 22, 10:00am - 4:00pm. While we may be aware that the asana practice is just one limb of the 8 limbs of yoga, we are often faced with little opportunity to be guided through the philosophy or exploration of the other aspects of practice.
Seeing and feeling this need I reached out to Stephanie a couple of years ago and asked her to guide Asana and Philosophy workshops, which many of you participated in and reported to have found illuminating.
Stephanie is especially versed in the philosophy and how to integrate it with the asana practice after having spent years exploring this in her own practice, as well as years living in Pune, studying and assisting B.K.S. Iyengar, his daughter Geeta and son Prashant.
The session will be a participatory exploration through asana. Check link in bio for details on the website. #yogapractice#yogaaustralia#iyengaryogaaustralia#iyengaryoga#yogaworkshop#yogaphilosophy#yoga
SATURDAY WORKSHOP SERIES! JULY 7 – TAPAS – FIRE AND FREEDOM WITHIN THE TWIST
Derived from the Sanskrit root, “Tap” , tapas refers to the burning away of impurities. In the asana practice we focus on the poses that are heating, activating and “rinsing”. The image of a towel being rung out is helpful when employing the twisting poses. If the towel is hard and dry the wringing is not possible. The same is true when working with the body. We will explore how to keep the organic body supple in the twists to promote tone rather than hardness and observe the corresponding psychological effects. Bookings are essential.
