Life can be intense, but struggle need not bowl us over. In yoga class, our teachers often ask us to calm down, sometimes by observing our breath, sometimes by observing our body. What about our mind? What role does the mind play in our ability to enjoy the experience of hatha yoga and our life beyond? Join Peter for a hatha yoga practice that will outline simple yet profound steps for clearing away stress and struggle even in the presence of intensity.
In this two hour lecture/practice, we'll discuss the anatomy of the shoulder joints, the big mover muscles, and their deeper less talked about neighbors. These core muscles will improve your stability and sense of strength in weight-bearing asana, backbends, and good ole Downward Facing Dog.
