Doug Keller June 2 – 4, 2017. The Fabric of Awareness: The Therapeutic Wisdom of Yoga Discovered Through Practice
We will begin with the upper body — the neck, shoulders and arms — to explore the fascial lines or ‘sutras’ that govern them, and variations in poses that promote the health of the hands, wrists, elbows, shoulders and neck; what their proper alignment and actions are in ALL classes of poses, both weight-bearing and non-weight bearing (which is always a source of controversy among teachers and practitioners), and what the most common therapeutic problems are that we encounter in these areas, the anatomy of these problems, the obstacles that they present in asana practice, and how they can be addressed through variations and with the use of props, particularly to support strengthening and healing.
This weekend retreat is SOYA’s 22nd year. Join Doug and SOYA faculty for an amazing weekend! Registration will open January 1st 2017 at 6am Pacific Time. Don’t delay as we expect the retreat will fill very quickly.
