Join Anne Robinson of the Hudson Valley’s MaMA to understand the true relationship of breath and movement in your vinyasa practice. This workshop will begin with feeling the diaphram move with the breath and progress into experimenting with movement through space, with the awareness on the breath. We’ll watch as the shape of the body changes, how that affects the breath, and note how the breath affects the shape change of the body. We will experiment with and discuss how being in touch with the breath can move the whole being into a deeper and more expansive place.

Hatha, the physical practice of yoga, is a vehicle towards self-awareness. As Iyengar says, ”Health begins with firmness in the body, deepens to emotional stability, then leads to intellectual clarity, wisdom and finally the unveiling of the soul … . We work with the body to perfect the soul.“ As we deepen and connect with ourselves through the practice of Hatha Yoga, we let go of physical, mental and emotional habits that are unnecessary. Yoga starts with the physical and ultimately takes the practitioner to a much deeper level of experience.

NET is a precise and effective tool for locating and releasing patterns of unresolved stress in the body. Many of my patients report that NET sessions have been beneficial in resolving physical conditions and in helping to identify and release causes of emotional stress.During this introductory workshop, we will look at how the body is naturally designed to deal with stress, what happens when the system gets overwhelmed and ways in which patterns of unresolved stress can be located and released. In addition to the presentation, a demonstration of NET will be offered to attendees and a self-care protocol will be given for use at home.
