Workshop with Peentz
“Effort and Surrender”; A Workshop with Peentz Dubble
For Teachers, Aspiring Teachers, and Seasoned Students
All yoga styles welcome!
Sutra 2.47“Perfection in an asana is achieved when the effort to perform it becomes effortless and the infinite being within is reached.” B.K.S. Iyengar
Once we have learned the basic mechanics of Urdhva Dhanurasana (Upward Bow Pose), how do we move beyond “brute force” effort, to begin to taste the “effortless effort” of which Patanjali speaks in Sutra 2.47?
In this workshop, you will refine your discrimination in order to explore the nuances of “effort” as well as refine your relationship to “surrender”. HOW we practice is as important as WHAT we practice. And discriminately choosing what NOT to practice opens the door to deep change and transformation.
(*Students should be able to practice all inversions as well as backbends).
Supported postures intended to introduce principles of intelligent action and alignment of posture whilst ensuring that students have the support of props needed to practice the pose to capacity.
