Grounded in the latest research in neuroscience and neurobiology, Self Awakening Yoga explores the self-learning process that arises from focusing mental attention on bodily sensation. Through easy-to-practice actions, practitioners relearn the natural patterns of movement that unfolded throughout each of the developmental cycles, from birth to maturity. These pleasurable movements free us to move the way the body is designed to move, and result in the feeling of being at home within our own bodies.Through increased attention, we learn how to enter a state of embodied, meditative awareness. By moving slowly, we allow the body to learn through experience and respond to the internal inquiries, "What wants to happen?" "What wants to open?" "What would feel more pleasurable?" The result is that you establish the ability to witness yourself "As Is."All levels welcome.Taught on a rotating basis by Celeste Bolin and Liz Hilton.
