Over this weekend immersion, dive into the 4th Niyama (personal observance) of svadhyaya, or self discovery. Through asana practice, meditation, movement, discussion, and journaling, as well as an exploration of the chakra system and restorative poses, we will reconnect to yoga’s innate ability to teach us about ourselves. Reconnect to your desires and have a space to begin to work through challenges. Practice and learn tools regarding self-inquiry that can then be practiced on your own.
The weekend immersion will include:
- What is svadhyaya and why is self-study important?
- Historical practice of yoga as a means for self-inquiry and growth
- Meditation and movement as tools to cultivate self awareness, and how this can complement your yoga practice
- Yoga asana practice with specific focus on alignment and inquiry
- Overview of the chakra system and how it can be utilized in yoga practice
- Journaling on challenges and revelations found in yoga practice
- Incorporating the methods of self-inquiry into your personal practice
Instructor — Gail Gurewitz
Gail Rosenheim Gurewitz fell in love with movement and ballet as a young child. From the age of 15, she performed internationally as a soloist with world-renowned ballet companies, including San Francisco Ballet. While recovering from career-ending injuries, she began to experience many benefits from her yoga practice, which she has cultivated for nearly 25 years. In 2008, after a lifetime of movement frequently accompanied by physical pain, Gail began training with Sianna Sherman and realized that she had finally found a healthy, pain-free way to move deeply on physical and subtle levels, through specific fundamental principles of Hatha Yoga, which quickly became her path of devoted study, practice, and teaching. Gail is passionately dedicated to helping others experience healing, freedom, and joy through movement. She views each pose as an opportunity to learn from and transcend limitations, to experience and offer our innate radiance through physical expression and throughout life.
