For many people their first introduction to yoga is through the desire to become fitter and healthier. In time one will find there is more to yoga than simply ‘special’ exercises. Our nervous, endocrine and digestive systems are fundamental to our evolution, physically, mentally, and emotionally.
This day is an overview of the evolution and development of body systems and how we can use this knowledge to explore modern, functional movement in yoga. It's a fascinating exploration of how the whole being revolves around the felt awareness of ourselves, the chemicals deployed by our nervous and endocrine systems and the microbiota of our digestive systems. The effect of the interplay of all of this on our well-being is far-reaching. It's an interesting and fun day full of practices that you can use in your own life as well as a teacher.
