Laboratory of Practice: Activity, Awareness, Sensitivity with Michael Lucey
May 10, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - May 31, 2019 @ 8:00 pm
3 Part Series: Fridays 6 – 8pm
May 10, 17 and 31
Join Michael for a series of special 2 hour class exploring and experimenting with schemas for practice that bring us towards prayatna shaitiliya, that state of effortless effort that is mentioned in Sutra II.47. How can the body, mind and breath become connected, associated, and kneaded together through our practice of asana? How can this help us explore what it might mean to be “undisturbed by dualities (Sutra II.48)”?
Inspired by the teachings of Prashant Iyengar, this series is recommended for students with at least 2 years of regular practice in the Iyengar tradition.
You can also save the date for a summer series with Michael: July 26, August 9 and 16.
