Yoga For Your Bones

Workshop at Yoga Mountain Studio

July 26, 2014 2-4:30pm

Marin, CA

Your bones are your structural support and the wellspring from which blood, lymph, and stem cells are born. Your bones are shaped by the way you move and your entire skeleton is regenerated every two years. Thus, proper alignment in yoga results in healthy bones, release of chronic tension, and support for your organs, including your brain. We will learn skeletal architecture and how specific yoga practices restore your bones.
Open to students at all levels.

Pre-register to ensure your spot: $40 Regular, $35 YMS Members per workshop.

“The word Prajna in Sanskrit means Insight, Deep Understanding and Wisdom. It suggests an embodied wisdom, a knowing that permeates the nerve endings, the connective tissues and the blood cells throughout the body.” 
~Tias Little

Prajna Yoga is defined by a depth of study that combines the powerful techniques of asana, anatomy, pranayama, and meditation, with the poignant teachings of yoga philosophy. The asanas are explored through somatic movement, anatomical illumination, and discussion of the energetics of practice. Meditation gives insight into the mind, heart, and emotional body. Each session will include postures, breath, wisdom teachings, and meditation. This immersion is open to all practitioners who wish to gain a deeper understanding of yoga.
