Sandra Anderson teaching "Alignment and Beyond" at Poulstone Retreat Centre 13-15 October

Exploring the deeper dimensions of yoga in practice

Awaken the true power and intention of asana and invigorate your practice with the 3As: Alignment, Activation, and Awareness.

We’ll explore how to access a deeper level of rejuvenating and empowering energy using the tantric framework for spinal alignment, activation of the navel centre, and conscious awareness. By refining alignment, we integrate the body and mind, and then work with bandhas, tantric techniques to channel and intensify the energy of the body and senses. An effortless and delightful sense of inner awareness produces further refinements in alignment and activation leading to a peaceful, clear, state of mind.

Learn to parlay alignment, activation, and awareness in asana to other practices of yoga, and to your life.

Every session will combine discussion and practice.
