SATYA Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement
In a SATYA practice all the movements are done on the floor in a flowing fashion, without force. The exercises are non-weight bearing and involve sliding, gliding and circular movements, aiming to reduce myo-fascial holding in the body. The exercises
help mobilize the joints, remove fatigue from the body, balance asymmetries and align the right and left sides of the body. The SATYA training, along with yoga postures, involves neural-muscular re-education. Like in vinyasa training, breath is combined with movement in order to deepen the respiratory rhythm and cultivate inner listening. By training in the field of our sensory-motor system and by listening and developing a more receptive mind, we tap the body-mind’s innate intelligence and capacity to heal.
This workshop will be 3 hours. It will begin with a brief lecture to deepen your understanding of SATYA. Valerie will then lead us in a SATYA practice followed by all levels asana practice. The event will conclude with meditation and savasana
