2019 Summer Yogadance Intensive with Theresa Elliott
Jun 17, 2019| $650 – $700
This 5-day intensive will delve into the rich relationship between music, body and mind through the study of Yogadance. Posture, stylized yoga sequences, and a broad range of music will be explored and combined to create a set work of yoga choreography.
Theresa Elliott has developed and refined a unique methodology of instruction for her original content and choreography over the last 28 years. Through deconstruction, intellectual engagement and physical repetition, she teaches the relationship between the stillness of stationary posture, the transitions of vinyasa, and the expression of Yogadance.
The intensive culminates in an informal performance at the annual Taj Yoga Summer Works in Progress show, Friday evening, June 22nd. Performing is an exciting way to share and inspire others, and strengthens the group bond forged through the week. Participation in the performance is optional and highly recommended.
A solid understanding of standing poses, healthy backs and knees. How to prepare and what to bring will be included in the con rmation email.
