Sensory Awareness Training
“In those moments when awareness succeeds in being at one with feeling, senses, movement, and thought, the carriage will speed along on the right road. Then man can make discoveries, invent, create, innovate, and “know.” He grasps that his small world and the great world around are but one and that in this unity he is no longer alone.”
Tias Little is one of my favorite yoga teachers in the whole world, and so I am very excited that one of his longtime students, Valerie Viosca (who also happens to be our in-house acupuncturist) will be offering an introductory sampling of his latest work this week. Join us this Friday, October 14 from 7:00-8:30pm for Intro to SATYA (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement). This system of movement combines the neural-muscular re-education techniques of Moshe Feldenkrais and Thomas Hanna with conventional yoga postures. The exercises are non-weight bearing and involve gentle movements that reduce myo-fascial holding in the body. The intention is to cultivate inner listening in order to re-gain awareness in places where there has been holding or freezing, so that the body’s innate healing intelligence can flow. Just like last weekend’s The Tao of Yoga, this workshop is entirely appropriate for all levels of yoga practitioners who wish to broaden and deepen their practice. Space is limited though, so be sure to reserve your spot now.
Hope to see you in class soon,
