An introduction to the evolution of practice
with Bobbie Ellis
Sunday, April 23, 10am – 1pm
Discover new and unexpected possibilities when you combine the fluid movement practices of Continuum with the principles and practice of Yoga. An introductory program designed for everyone interested in the practice of Yoga or Continuum, as well as people exploring new approaches to conscious embodim
Bobbie will guide experiential learning as you explore:
How the fluid nature of the body can inform yoga practice.
Movement as what we are, not what we do.
How the “8 limbs” of yoga are found in Continuum.
The body as a creative process, not an object.
Inhabiting, and pouring our bodies into and out of asanas as a living, fluid process.
Signs of life in your yoga practice, as opposed to the need to perfect the form of your practice.
Preventing yoga-related injuries by changing our habitual tempo and listening from within in new and novel ways.
Moving beyond the physical aspects of Yoga and questioning the flexibility of being human, rather than the literal flexibility of your body.
Awareness of internal experience through breath, sound, guided and silent meditation, and fluid movement.
The dexterity and variety of breathing practices in Yoga and Continuum.
Inner resources for resilience, adaptability, and change.
The difference between discipline and devotion to practice.
