In the classical Hatha Yoga tradition, yoga is, in part, a practice of using the body to strengthen and heal the body. The same is true with adaptive yoga. The purpose of adaptive yoga is to make yoga accessible to more people, especially those who have injuries, limitations, or disabilities. Yoga truly is for every body!
When a person is injured or disabled, s/he may also be suffering emotionally and spiritually. Being able to experience the sensations, if not the actual muscular orientation of asana postures, along with the practice of pranayama can provide a tremendous improvement in such a person’s quality of life. The key concept in adaptive yoga is to strive for the sensation in the pose, rather than actual muscular orientation.
Join John Grey and expand your yoga experience with the four sensations that come with adaptive yoga:
Grounding – stability, steady, rooted, planting
Expansion – lifting, lengthening, opening, creating space
Balance – centering, finding stillness, symmetry, lightness
Rhythm – breath, flow, energy, grace
This 2-hour workshop is appropriate for anyone recovering from surgery, injury, illness, working with limited mobility/stability, or with a disability of any kind. Chairs are available. All are welcome! $35 www,republicofyoga.com
