Join David Garrigues at Dhyana Yoga in Philadelphia for a Dynamic Transitions workshop!

Yoga is a form of dynamic meditation, a combination of awakened, grounded movement and concentrated, agile immovability. And there is a connection between using your intellect and becoming skilled in executing the dynamic aspects of the vinyasa practice. These aspects call for the use of sharp mental clarity, sudden readiness, ability to judiciously apply SPEED, POWER, and ENERGETIC vitality to your movements in transitions and when performing actions in the postures. We’ll explore transitions that involve jumping, rolling, swinging, and floating, and how the vinyasa movements invite you to use your spine dynamically in order to engage your full attention in your postures. We’ll also study how to develop and refine your jump back and through using the SUPER DYNAMIC ‘crouch and spring’ method.

Unleash the mind this Friday evening with David Romanelli at Yoga View in his Wine & Chocolate workshop!

Einstein said, “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” In America, we determine intelligence based on antiquated factors like IQ or grades in school. In the ancient Eastern world, intelligence is based on things like passion, courage, and wisdom. For instance, the Sufis determined intelligence by one’s appreciation of music. If you’ve ever felt like there’s some brilliant and unappreciated part of you that is dying for a chance to bust loose, this 2 hour vinyasa flow workshop will give you the space and tools to tap your genius. With rockin’ tunes, flowing yoga, and an awakened mind, this is the perfect way to spend 2 golden weekend hours. After class, you’ll enjoy a tasting of fine wine and lift your glass to the simple pleasures!
