Godfri Devereux and Olivia Crooks are visiting Copenhagen and will be teaching a 4 days immersion on the dynamics of yoga posture practice. The focus of the immersion is the power of the Spiral Dynamic engaged in the arms and legs. The Spiral Dynamic allows the lengthenings, broadenings and groundings of the Seven Universal Actions to be integrated into the relationship between the ribcage and the pelvis, by way of the interconnected nature of the relationships bewteen the body parts. This supports and releases the breath as well as the spine and allows the body to be activated as a single unit.  The Spiral Dynamic will be explored within the context of the Vinyasaxandrasya (based on xandranamaskar), Vinyasasyurasya (based on suryanamaskar) and Vinyasasukasya series (incorporating standing postures).

The immersion includes a set of written materials, image and sound files that can be used in your own practice at home.

It is open to any yoga practitioner.

Preliminary day program (8.00-17.00)

Morning session (5 hours) Godfrey teaches a guided practice which will include pranayama, asana and meditation. After the class Godfrey will go through the theory behind the practice and present the techniques and postures one by one.

Afternoon session (3 hours) Olivia will guide an exploration of the postures and techniques that was presented in the morning session. This will allow techniques and principles of alignment to be integrated in organically in your body and your practice (rather than requiring you to learn and remember them as abstract knowledge). After the exploration, Olivia will teach a short guided yoga class which introduces the theme for the following day.

Price: 525 EUR for 32 hours of teaching as well as course materials. If booked together with the two next immersions in november 2011 and may 2012 the price for all three immersions is 1500 EUR.
