Absolute Yoga, in Woodbury, will host a John Friend Anasura workshop class from February 1 through 3. In this workshop, Friend will emphasize the fundamentals of the way that he practices hatha yoga as a path of spiritual unfolding through positive mind-body discipline, technical posture alignment and creative play.
Focusing on a postural sequence called, The Roots, which is designed to help tune the mind-body for any level yoga student, Friend will present key focuses for the mind and the postural alignments within the sequence. Students will discover that there are universal alignments and actions that can be applied to each pose which will open up the shoulders and hips specifically. All poses are performed using universal principles of alignment, which help to avoid injuries and make the poses particularly therapeutic and transformative.
The 55 base poses of The Roots are accessible by everyone, regardless of age. In addition, there are 56 additional advanced poses which will challenge all experienced practitioners within the class. Stages and modifications will be given for each pose so that everyone can participate and students will go deeper into The Roots sequence with more detail and sophistication each day, learning how to customize it and advance their own practices.
Specific time TBA. Location: 1 Guilles Lane, Woodbury. For additional information or to register, call 516-682-9642, email Info@AbsoluteYogaStudio.com or visit AbsoluteYogaStudio.com.
