Gentle is the new Advanced
Imagine yoga before it was transformed in its journey to the West. Imagine a personalized, breath-centered practice, passed down from individual teacher to student. A Yoga for the well being of the whole person; something that would provide a vehicle for learning to truly take care of ourselves and ease the pains of life. Yoga changed when it came to the West.
New styles and brands of yoga have developed which meet the desires and expectations of the western audience. Focusing on the outer, physical achievements, and perhaps losing something in the creation of a standardized, scaled and franchised approach to yoga. But the older traditions have also continued, and J. Brown is at the forefront of a wonderful resurgence of this ‘old-school’ yoga. This is J’s signature offering that he has given to thousands of teachers and students around the world.
At once both a revolution and a return to the ancient roots of yoga. In this gentle, therapeutic, breath-centered approach, we are making the body strong and flexible — but we go about it in a way that also encourages useful patterns of thought and behavior. In this workshop, we explore: – Methods for incorporating therapeutic orientation into group classes – The role that breath plays in supporting the body – The effects of different sequencing, pacing and purpose in group flow classes – Techniques for teaching diverse populations and multilevel students – The teacher/student relationship.
