Your mind is a powerful tool of attention, where everything is temporary and nothing is impossible. With the creative use of Gravity as a physical catalyst for movement, and Grace as an energetic catalyst for connection, experience the gentle awakening of your subtle body’s neural and somatic channels responsible for effortless motion, healing, and infinite possibilities. This workshop will help uncover refined levels of attention and focus, and remind you that our bodies possess many “minds”, like the mind in our hearts, the mind in our guts, the mind in our brains, and the mind in our bones. Discover how the magic found in the shape of our yoga poses encourages deep sensitivity in each “seat” of our minds, and through consistent practice, naturally builds flexibility, strength, and stillness in body and soul.
Come join us for Peter’s return to the Urban Ashram! This special yoga course will lead you towards a new way of seeing your practice and a new inner dialog that meets you where you are - physically or psychologically. Discover how to recognize and naturally release your body’s unwanted, often subconscious patterns of contraction to produce an incredible lightness of being. Once this is felt, it helps us avoid taking the meaning of yoga and life too seriously, revealing to us a more intuitive approach for living and practicing.
