Svaha: An offering to the fire. An oblation. A goddess and wife of Agni (fire god). In this workshop we practice intently, deeply. We hold: time, the moment, our sacredness. We build: heat, strength, wisdom, our connectedness. We offer: truth, softness, our breath. Join us in this two hour workshop where we hold asana for an extended period of time. The poses are simple but will be deep. Poetry will be read. Silence will beckon and then we’ll soften into long stretches and deep seated forward bends. The point is to feel your edge and be amazed at your own ability to soften into it. You will learn about what you can hold in order to give up since heat is nature’s way of taking what you don’t need and cleasing one’s spirit. Your body will feel transformed. Your spirit will alight.
Partners learn how to move and stretch one another into healing and delightful Yoga postures. This form of bodywork is usually preformed on the floor, and participants wear comfortable clothes that allow for movement. Thai Yoga can be traced back as far as 2,500 years, and has its roots in the ancient healing traditions of Ayurveda. Robert Ortner leads the experience for duos of all kinds: friends, life mates, siblings, neighbors, you can even stretch your boss. No Yoga experience is necessary, only a desire to give and receive Yoga.
Join Robert for this exciting new workshop where we will learn a complete Wu Gi Qigong sequence, combining it into an easy and fun routine. There will be an optional 4 week series to practice and memorize the full sequence. Qigong pronounced (chee gung), is an ancient health maintenance system from China that combines breathing, slow movement, and visualizations into a simple and elegant practice that can look like simple stretching or meditation. But inside, Qigong is a practice that can teach us how to realize the potential of our “Qi” in every cell and organ in our bodies. This workshop is 40 dollars per person. Please register in advance.
