We are beings of energy, responding to every input in our experience as humans. Emotion and thought have their own energetic component and impact us on an energetic level, often becoming trapped. Trapped emotion, as stagnant vibrating energy, remains with us and often causes misunderstood issues, ailments, diseases, and moods. It is our responsibility to look within and discover, understand, and release this trapped energy as well as how we have structured our physical being around it. Over the course of two weekend modules, Unraveling the Emotional Body will teach many methods, tools, and practices to wholly acknowledge what we have been avoiding as well as the path to liberating ourselves and our students from suffering. This module introduces therapeutic and somatic methods of unwinding contraction in the body; reposturing and releases; Tantra and energetics; balancing the elements in the body; self-care practices; mantra and chanting; bandhas and pranayama; meditation and more.
Unraveling the Emotional Body Part Two will build on the methods and practices introduced in part one of this module. As we examine our own and our students’ patterns of holding emotion, we become more adept at Vairagya, the yogic practice of letting go. Diving even deeper into the subtle layers and the elements of wind and space, we will continue to unwind, understand, and release what is causing physical and psycho-spiritual discomfort and imbalance. Using somatic and therapeutic techniques, we will open the heart, neck, arms, and shoulders. Subtle breath practices, meditation, and mantra will be reinvigorated. Each trainee will leave with their own prescriptive home practice and a new level of compassion for Self and others.
