There is a perception in the exercise and movement world that our posture is largely due to the relative strengths and weaknesses of various muscles in the body and the solution to postural issues is to stretch and strengthen the relevant muscles until we are straightened out. This, however, is a long way from the truth, posture and movement are all controlled at the neurological level and we take up shapes and movements that we have previously mapped in our brain. We create maps through attentive practice, and if we want to change the way we move or stand we need to pay attention not to our structure but to our nervous system. This workshop will explore ways we can do this through the practice of yoga.
Peter Blackaby has studied and trained in yoga and osteopathy. He’s an explorer and examiner and his landscape and environment are the body and mind. As a result, his workshops are intellectually interesting and physically enlightening.
