In this week-end immersion we emulate the way ocean currents and tides move along the shores of the outer Cape. Through circulating movements we increase the flow of vitality through the many arterial channels of the body in order to rinse, flush, and restore inherent vitality in the body.
FRIDAY, JULY 21 | 2:00 – 5:00pm
In all of our practices, the legs are used to channel blood and lymph back to the torso. Through dynamic and restorative positions, we mobilize the inside channels of the legs and increase circulation through the ankles, knees, and low back.
FRIDAY, JULY 21 | 6:00 – 8:00pm
Tao is the vital flow of change in nature. It ebbs and flows and moves through a process of drifting and streaming. The Tao is said to be always changing and, like moving water, it flows naturally and spontaneously. In this class we open the circulatory pathways of the blood, lymph, and nerve with stretching and flowing movements. Through arcs, curves, spirals, and elliptical movements, we cultivate a harmonic balance between activity and rest.
SATURDAY, JULY 22 | 10:00am – 1:00pm
This class is a deep dive into the hip joints. We take a slow progression through the many angles of rotation in and around the hips to generate fluidity in the sacrum and pelvis. We will practice releasing the sacrum and low back in order to generate a stream-like flow of prana through the spine.
SATURDAY, JULY 22 | 2:00 – 5:00pm
In this class we support the inherent motion of the diaphragm in all poses by following a wave-like motion of the breath. Sometimes the breath becomes very shallow (low tide) while at other times it expands and widens (high tide). We take the approach that the breath cannot be forced or insisted upon, but that respiration will “reset” as releases in the connective tissues naturally occur.
