Detox mit Yogeswari
Date: Sunday, October 11th, 2020
Time: 14:00 – 16:30
Location: Buttermelcherstr. 15, RgB.
The origins and context that lead to the creation of Jivamukti Yoga will be discussed, as well as its principal objectives and components. Asanas will focus on twists and inversions. Twists are very effective in helping us to detox from residual emotional and psychological obstacles, especially anger and depression. In order for twists to have a truly healing and balancing effect, it is important to apply precision in knowing which body parts are involved, and how. Inversions permit us to see the world upside down, thus developing greater tolerance and enhancing the breadth of our perception. The centers of higher consciousness are stimulated, and through a complete reversal of gravity, stagnant physiological processes are activated and rejuvenated.
