18 hrs: Pranayama and subtle body visualization are traditional Yogic practices of great potency and inherent simplicity. Engaging our awareness of the full spectrum of the breath– from spontaneous breath to more active breath, reveals how the breath acts as a thread that weaves the seemingly separate body/mind/heart into one single tapestry. Subtle body visualization is an ancient yogic science that opens the door to deep movements and energetic relationships within our own being that are usually overlooked.
Diving into our own practice on a more subtle level, as well as learning how to articulate and guide others, will be invaluable both as dedicated practitioners and teachers. Join Julia in 3 weekends of touching-down-within and together let's reap the resulting harvest of insight, clarity and joy.
