BodyMapping Series at Integral Yoga Institute
Primary Body Mapping & Functional Movement for Yogis: A Three Week Course
Flora D.H.Ojanen (www.walkinbalance.net) is teaching a 3-week series offering mindful tools based on the Alexander Technique, emphasizing functional whole body coordination rather than flexibility, quality of movement rather than how far or how deep you can move.
This clear and simple approach uses body mapping to help you establish references in the body for safely moving through poses without blocking the flow of energy, circulation, or breath. In each class we will carefully deconstruct and rebuild poses highlighting the new awareness. This series is suited for all yoga practitioners, no matter age or ability. Come and treat your body with care, curiosity and reference.
