    Neurogenic Yoga is an integrative method combining yoga asana and pranayama with SITT (Self Induced Therapeutic Tremors). These tremors are the nervous system’s natural way of discharging long-held tension and trauma or unconscious muscle contraction, to restore the body to wholeness.

  • Upside Down: Inversion Workshop with Maya Lev
    May 20, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

    May 20, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm


    In his book "Light on Yoga" BKS Iyengar writes that Sirsasana (headstand) is called "the king of all asanas" while sarvangasana (shoulder stand) is "the Mother of asanas." The importance of these two postures, he says, "cannot be overemphasized," and he devotes more than two pages to elucidate their effects. In this workshop students will explore many inversions, including adho mukha vkrsasana (handstand), pincha mayurasana (elbow balance), as well as variations of sirsasana and sarvangasana to increase understanding, ability, and stamina in each of these postures.
