LOTUS YOGA CENTRE 100 Harbord St. Toronto, ON
Whether we experience neck or shoulder tension, back pain, tightness in the hips, or knots in our stomach, tension is an expression of our bound up energy, and it is full of creative, life affirming potential waiting to be revealed. Alchemical yoga, invites us to discover and honour the gold and intuitive wisdom held within the lead of our physical being. In a culture that teaches us to numb sensation, and mask symptoms with painkillers, this practice invites us to change our relationship with difficult sensations and invite a compassionate inquiry, to pay attention to the root of holding patterns and ultimately to honour our self and bodies as our allies in life. Through mindful attention, inquiry, curiosity, compassionate listening, and yogic postures, we will discover where we hold our energy into patterns of tension, and discover ways to release and flow to experience more physical and emotional freedom and creative flow.
