WITH Devon Dederich Sundays at 12:30pm
The beginner student learns how to do the pose.
The intermediate student learns to observe.
In this 6-week series, we will explore the properties of asana - moving from beginner to intermediate level asana and effort in each session.
Each week explores one of these asana family of poses:
Week 1: Standing poses
Week 2: Back extensions
Week 3: Twisting poses
Week 4: Forward bends
Week 5: Inversions
Week 6: Arm balances
Each class begins with review or relearning of the individual roles the muscle, joints, and bones have in forming the outward movement and shapes of asana. That strong foundation opens to more subtle actions and understanding. This combination of basic effort and subtle observation will help us approach several challenging asanas each week.
The unique value of a two-hour class is having the time to develop that intermediate level of observation and connect the effects of the poses on the organs, circulation, nervous system, and mind. This time allows us to be more hands-on while teaching adjustments and explore the use of the new props in the room.
