Move from the Spine and the Pelvis – Angles-sur-l’Anglin (France) – 20-22 March 2020

 

Angles-sur-l'Anglin

The classes of the weekend will be dedicated to the spine which is so often ill-treated in our daily lives. We will aim at bringing the spine in its axis and we will consciously move from our pelvis, our true centre.

We will begin the journey sitting in a position respectful of the structure of the pelvis and of the organs lying within it. Hence, the spine will naturally rise from the pelvis displaying the beauty of its curvatures, we will breathe freely and our three-dimension body will vibrate lively. This is of utmost importance! The diaphragm will ebb and flow, unhindered, setting the beat for the other body arches (arches of the feet, perineum, soft palate and even fontanelle) and, so, the body will find its alignment. The starfish feeling will settle down: inhale to our centre and exhale from our centre to our outer limits, helping the body unfold in the poses.

There will be no so-called advanced poses, no search of cardiac output increase and no direct strengthening of the core. There will be slow movements brought about by the breath, which will enable us to be aware of what will be going on in our bodies. From the sitting position we will continue our journey on all-fours, standing, lying prone and supine, before diving into the crucial moment of relaxation, allowing our bodies to enjoy the benefits of the practice and to savour the feeling of our true centre and a revitalised spine.

Through the poses we will reach out to the other people, because yoga is not just a question of looking within - me, myself and I on my own petty mat -, but it is mainly a succession of movements performed to go beyond our skin to meet our fellows, exactly as a baby does, already in the womb, to discover the world out of its comfort zone. The classes will bring about vitality and energy and we will feel once again the lively vibes of our bodies. We will enjoy self-confidence and we will be ready to go back to our daily lives on a renewed basis.

Yoga classes will be soothing and tailored to everyone's needs, whatever your condition and whether you are new to yoga or a seasoned practitioner.

Look no further, if…

 

  • you seek fluidity rather than flexibility at all cost;
  • you want to feel your body breathe and move freely from your energetic centre, the sacrum;
  • you want to feel your spine rooted in the earth and pointing toward the sky, supported along its natural curves, allowing your muscles to relax;
  • you want to keep on going about your daily tasks effortlessly and without pain;
  • off the mat, you strive to be as aware as on the mat;
  • each time you step on your mat, you are ready to accept the body as it is;
  • you experience each pose as if your were performing it for the first time;
  • you want to take appropriate action in a relaxed way rather than to try to reach perfection;
  • for you, yoga is not only a way of exploring your body, but also part of a spiritual practice.
