We invite you to join us for special events designed to strengthen your yoga practice and build community at UVY.
“Our breath is constantly rising and falling, ebbing and flowing, entering and leaving our bodies. Full body breathing is an extraordinary symphony of both powerful and subtle movements that massage our internal organs, oscillate our joints, and alternately tone and release all the muscles in the body. It is a full participation in life.” – Donna Farhi

PART 2: Mind—Svadyaya: Self Study through Asana, Breath, Reflection and Meditation
Saturday, November 17, 12:30-2:30
An introspective sequence to guide the mind inward while exploring the elements of water and air. We begin with the physical structure as a doorway into the reflective mind. Tame your thought through fluid movement and in balance postures and forward folds, and then discover specific pranayama practices. Then, we will train the mind to passively observe thoughts and reactions in writing prompts and deep meditation. Gain insights into how to bring these methods into your practice and your teaching.
PART 3: Soul—Creativity in Sequence and Structure
Saturday, December 8, 12:30-2:30
When yoga is more than a physical exercise it will lead you to the discovery of spirit and soul. Explore easeful, fluid mobility and permeability as you develop creative sequencing for your own practice or for your teaching. Learn to distill the primary actions of an asana and explore range of motion within a structure through shoulders, hips, and deep meditation. Learn to feel your body from within through creative exploration of the place where body meets space and space meets soul.
