April 30 – May 2nd, 2021
Bobby’s study of Iyengar Yoga began in 1972 in the UK—as did a 20-year career in animation. She was certified to teach by B.K.S. Iyengar in 1977, and has made subsequent trips to Pune every two years ever since.
Friday, April 30th – 6-8:30 pm – EDT – Standing Poses/Hip Opening
Proper stimulation of the first chakra eases all lower extremity diseases, including those in the legs and feet. Squeeze the tailbone in and channel energy up the spine, away from the chakra (too much energy in a chakra can be just as unhealthy and even dangerous as too little energy). Similarly, in order to have access to the second chakra, which is associated with the testicles and ovaries, and to conserve energy, work in the pelvic region.
Saturday May 1: 1 – 4:00pm EDT
Back bends (supported and unsupported)
To release stress, and to develop courage, stimulate the third and fourth chakras by practicing the back bends.
Sunday May 2: 1 – 4:00pm EDT
Restorative Poses: Inversions (supported & unsupported) and Seated Forward Extensions
When the fifth chakra at the throat center, is properly awakened, diseases in the immune system, neurological system, throat and upper bronchials are relieved. Psychosomatitic diseases, throat cancer and illnesses resulting from suppression of the self can be treated by activating this chakra. The sixth chakra, Ajna, located between the eyes stimulates the pituitary gland, immune system and creative visualization. This chakra is linked to the spiritual and soul bodies.
