MODULE 1: TRIPSICHORE SUN SALUTES –The next level of fluidity
Tripsichore Sun Salutes explore ingenious ways of performing Vinyasa asana movement and ujjayi breath. Through the cultivation of evenness of breath coupled with evenness of movement, these Sun Salutes seek to bring evenness of mind while executing challenging sequences of postures.
SATURDAY 9/24 (1:00 – 3:30pm)
MODULE 2: INVERSIONS — MOVING WITH UJJAYI BREATH AND MOVING FROM THE MULA – What is the most you can do to create inversions with the least effort?
There are two aspects to inversions – the thrill of the spectacularly acrobatic, and the peace of nearly effortless balancing. Both require skill and physical intelligence. They also require a degree of courage and a willingness to experiment. There are many methods used to attain inverted postures and a fantastic number of variations are possible. We will look at a number of these in this module. We will, however, be confining our explorations to what we see as having a distinctly yogic approach. The postures will be attempted using the yogic methods concerning breathing and focus. This means that they are, comparatively, safe to attempt. A deeper practice isn’t just about achieving harder postures. Rather, it is also about the grace with which you perform them.
SUNDAY 9/25 (9:00 – 11:30am)
MODULE 3: OVERCOMING FEAR AND OTHER OBSTACLES – Unusual Asanas and Balances
There are postures we love to do and others we are not so fond of – some come to us with apparent ease and others are approached with a degree of dread. Yoga philosophy encourages, through action, the appreciation and awareness of the “present moment” without attachment to the outcome. Fear and other obstacles tend to be based on projections into the future or past. To overcome these tendencies, one identifies the fear or obstacle and strategies to confront them.
SUNDAY 9/25 (1:00 – 3:30pm)
MODULE 4: BACK BENDS DON’T HURT – Finding ease in the extreme
One of the glories of physical practice is the grace of the backbend. However, the extremity of this movement is not regularly encountered in daily life. To execute these movements safely is a matter of technical exactitude which should be practiced by those who find it easy to do, and by those for whom it is a daunting prospect. This module that will look at how to achieve extreme back bending in a progressively safe way.
