Thursday Immersion: Smart Transitions - Evoking Mindfulness and Strength

As we all know, Yogis don’t get injured while in a pose; it is coming into and out of a pose -- when our attention lapses -- that we may create strain or injury. We’ll look at some of the classic Yoga transitions and bring the power of our attention to them, seeking gaps in our concentration and physical areas of deficit or over-working.
Via the vehicle of moving from one pose into the next, we will shift from the future-orientation of already being there, or the past focus of being mentally stuck in the pose we are in, to the true present of moving mindfully from one pose to the next. Designed for Teachers and experienced Yogis, you’ll practice transitioning, assessing alignment and hands-on adjustments.

For dedicated practitioners and yoga teachers.
Please bring one block.
