Throughout this immersion weekend, Tias’s teachings will incorporate elements of yoga philosophy, anatomy, and mindfulness, offering participants a holistic and transformative experience. The workshops promise to enhance not only physical practice but also deepen the understanding of the subtle body and the interconnectedness of movement, breath, and meditation.
It is important for students of yoga to have open hips in order to be still, stable and centered in seated meditation. This class is an immersion to generate fluidity in the hips through both mobilization and stabilization techniques. Tias guides a series of movements to stretch, unwind and free the powerful musculature around the hips prior to sitting.
Saturday morning explores the historical context of yoga practice, drawing parallels between directing life force (prana) and the agricultural process of damming, collecting, and irrigating water for fields. Tias leads participants through yoga postures and somatic movements designed to open the channels of the body, emphasizing delicate and subtle nadis. The class alternately extends and contracts the body’s connective tissues, promoting the circulation of fluids throughout the body. Participants are encouraged to sense and feel the movement of life force in the subtle body.
The afternoon session delves into the craniosacral rhythm, exploring its passage from the skull to the spine and sacrum. Tias directs awareness to the cranial bones, connective tissues within the skull, and the movement of the brain. The aim is to support feather-fine states of concentration in sitting meditation practice. By understanding and attuning to the craniosacral pulse, participants can deepen their meditation experience and explore the subtle movements of prana within.
