Jivamukti Event

Saluting the Sun- A Hands-On Assist Workshop

From: November 18, 2017 2:00 pm

To: November 18, 2017 4:00 pm

Location: Jivamukti Yoga Center New York, New York, NY, United States

Price: $35 advance, $40 day of event

In this workshop, we will explore different facets of assists in Sun Salutations (Surya Namaskar A,B, Jivamukti Namaskar)- those perfectly timed assists that are unique to the Jivamukti method!
 
Often times we move through this familiar warm-up part of the practice without attention to the subtle details.
 
Juan will guide us to take a closer look at the postures, bringing attention and understanding to each movement of the pose. We will work on assists with a focus on the direction of energy for both the practitioner and the assister. We will hands-on learn the importance to give an assist that is both effective and non disruptive to the Vinyasa, by grounding the practitioner and moving in unison with their breath.
 
This workshop is designed for anyone interested in deepening their understanding of the subtle nuances of postures, and how assists can guide and benefit the practitioner with breath, direction of energy, and skillful hands-on practice. Open for daily practitioners and weekend warriors.

Juan Sierra is a NYC based Advanced Certified Teacher, currently living in Germany and teaching at Jivamukti Yoga Berlin.
