Centering Skills Workshop with David Regelin
YogaWorks Back Bay – CENTERING SKILLS with David Regelin Locate Your Center, and Relate It to Your Circumference $45 All yoga talk aside, we all have an innate understanding that there is a link between our posture and our psychology in that we all respond to one another's body language, more or less consciously, more or less compassionately. I believe that it works both ways, that we can influence how we feel by altering how we posture ourselves, and recent findings in neuroscience validates this. Since yoga postures are revelatory and dynamic examples of our everyday posture, they offer a range of opportunities self adjust. In this way, among others, yoga asana can be seen as a necessary preliminary to meditation practice. The goal of this class is to learn self adjusting techniques that lead to well adjusted posture and perspective. Simple concepts that describe how one is designed to fit together will be made clear within the context of a sequential asana practice. The goal is to develop the skill to self adjust. Bio: David Regelin is a traveling yoga teacher, he is based in New York City. David is a powerful voice, an eloquent and skillful teacher who is sought after for his workshops and teacher's intensives. His unique talent for simple yet precise articulation of form and technique, echo in the bodies and minds of his students. As a young teacher, David was at the forefront of what became a popular trend of choreographed vinyasa classes to the sound of live music. He created the "Multi-Intenso" experience, a class that garnered a cult following in New York City. "Multi-Intenso" was a technique based, athletic and dynamic style of yoga centered around handstands. David's reflective nature and incessant personal investigation into the potential transformative powers that a yoga practice can give, eventually led him to a more comprehensive approach to how physical form relates to psychological and emotional states. Inclined toward the mystical and timeless, greatly influenced by intensive study with Nevine Michaan, David's practice and teaching has evolved into a more refined adaptation of how an asana (postural) practice can instigate profound and often therapeutic change. Workshops are non-refundable. A studio credit maybe given if canceled 72 hours in advance. If cancelled with less than 72 hours notice no refund of any kind will be given. Any cancellation notice must be given in writing to danak@yogaworks.com. No other refunds or credits are available under any circumstances.
