Next workshop date to be announced.
This workshop offers you the opportunity to bring balance back to your nervous system and subtle body, and will promote the healing of emotional and physical traumas. We will work to balance and treat the bodies energies through the combined practices of restorative yoga and acupuncture.
This workshop is designed to help you re-establish a connection with the natural rhythms of our planet and sooth your nervous system. During the workshop, we will bring you into various restorative poses to ease your body and take you through traditional yogic and breath meditations to ease your mind. While you relax in your restorative postures, Joshua Webster D.ac will administer an acupuncture treatment to maximize the benefit of the restorative postures and induce a therapeutic effect throughout the major organs and structures of the body.
In addition to the practice of yoga poses, the traditional Indian Ayurvedic masters also practiced a form of acupuncture to stimulate the proper flow of prana throughout the body.
According to BKS Iyenger: “Prana is the energy permeating the universe at all levels. It is physical, mental, intellectual, sexual, spiritual, and cosmic energy”. When there is congestion of the energy channels through which vital force flows, this stagnant energy effects the functioning of the physical as well as the mental body.
