Tenacity is the practice of persistent determination as we move towards fulfilling our intentions. Yoga practice is a tool that can help us build this temperament. Through our practice, we can cultivate patience, resilience, commitment and courage; habits that enable us to get up when we fall and refocus when we loose our way.
Fluidity is about moving with awareness and presence. It is about listening to messages from the body and cultivating body intelligence.
Most of our human adult body is water.
Moving in this way is in sync with our natural rhythm and increases our vital energy (prana) that is essential to our wellbeing.
It is important to have energy move freely and consciously. When we cultivate conscious movement, we can learn to distribute our emotional flow inside & outside of ourselves. In order to sustain a tenacious state, we also have to learn to maintain fluidity- calm movements, unforced, with joy and satisfaction..
This keeps our presence in our practice and prevents us from fixating in the mind, helping us keep a state of balance..
Asana Addict is a practice that is focused on building these habits that serve you off your mat;
to have the courage to try something that seems out of reach
to have the patience to practice something that takes time to establish
to continue to believe in yourself despite setbacks and challenges
to break any conditioning that does not serve you
to remain present and calm when challenged
In this Asana Addict edition, we will be exploring a full spectrum practice with a focus on arm balances and ultimately, handstands!
You do not need to be able to do any of this to attend this workshop.
But you should already have a regular flow practice to enjoy this fully.
