Program

During this week the focus will be on the importance of external alignment as a prerequisite for the student's awareness of internal space. Specific energy techniques applying to the practice of asanas and pranayama will be provided.

You will have the opportunity to understand internal and external rooting in different sets of asanas, relax in the action by focusing on the back and diaphragm, and put the energy of the spine into motion. The workshop aims to encourage students to become more receptive and independent, and able to develop their own practice.
