A Weekend Workshop with Tias Little!
at body kneads yoga in Cranston, RI
SATURDAY 10:00 to 1:00 PM - Building your Inner Fire
The belly center, the third chakra, is the hearth of the body. In yoga we carefully stoke the fire within yet unfortunately there is often constriction in the gut due to stress and emotional holding. This class focuses on opening the belly through dynamic and passive poses. We emphasis twists and supported backbends to ignite the inner fire and pranayama to spread the light of prana throughout the body.
SATURDAY: 2:00 to 5:00 PM - One Body, One Mind
By doing yoga, we embody integration and wholeness from our toes to the crown of our head. In this class every breath, every movement and every pulse will be an expression of our one whole body, bringing a sense of unity and joy. As we cultivate the One Body, we experience the totality of mind, a mind that is like space, boundless and free. Whether doing yoga poses or in meditation this class practices the unity of body and mind.
SUNDAY 10:00 to 1:00 PM - The Great Seal: Maha Bandha
In classical hatha yoga there are three primary lifts or locks necessary to conduct the flow of prana through the channels of the body. In this class we cultivate the three internal seals in order to channel life force through the spine while expanding the heart and lungs. When done together, the three seals provide a most powerful flow of vitality through the subtle body.
SUNDAY 2:00 to 5:00 PM - Yoga of the Sun, Yoga of the Moon
Yoga is described historically as the union of opposites and in this class we investigate the polarity between solar and lunar energies in the body, two opposing and complementary sources of light and gravitational pull. In practice we balance the two sides of the body right and left in order to animate and illuminate the central channel of the spine. Come prepared to practice postures, mudras, chanting and meditation to create a harmonic convergence within the subtle energy fields of the body.
