This immersion has lapsed. See you on the next one!
Your feet are the place where you kiss the earth. They are two marvels of bio-tensegrity, small mobile platforms pre-tensioned in a dynamic spiral that offers support and adaptability. Each foot houses 26 bones, 33 joints, 107 ligaments, 19 muscles and tendons, and over 7,000 nerves which act as downwards sensory antennae. Lively, pliable, intelligent feet are vitally important for balance as well as stability whether we are walking or doing yoga.
This immersion explores how your feet are the foundation for all movement. We will investigate how having happy feet improves your breathing, circulation, the health of your organs, and an overall feeling of wellbeing. Learn how to create a healthy, vibrant relationships between your feet, your pelvis and spine and how to refine those connections to find effortlessness and ease in asana. We will move through standing poses, balances and floor work.
In the Vedas, the feet are called ‘the organs of action.’ Come explore and experience how to stand on your own two feet with poise and presence. This workshop will include yoga, somatics, embodied anatomy, breathwork, movement inquiry, developmental movement, bio-tensegrity, and a passion for the body-mind-spirit. Suitable for students from all walks of life. Immersions are livestreamed and will be recorded and available for 8 weeks.
‘Walk and touch peace every moment.
Walk and touch happiness every moment.
Each step brings a fresh breeze.
Each step makes a flower bloom under our feet.
Kiss the Earth with your feet.
Print on Earth your love and happiness.
Earth will be safe
when we feel in us enough safety.’
From “Call me by My True Names
The Collected Poems of Thich Nhat Hanh”
