Navigating the Asymmetric Body with Barbara Benagh

In the practice of hatha yoga much attention is paid to “right” alignment. One might think this is in the pursuit of linear symmetry, however, we humans are in a constant state of going with the flow and learning how to navigate a far more fluid hold on alignment. In this class the focus will be on moving with the inner currents that keep alignment from becoming overthought and rigid and, instead, become guides toward fluidly adapting to the form of asana. Spinal twists are particularly well suited for this exploration and will be given emphasis as Barbara encourages a re-thinking, of sorts, as we move and feeling these wonderful poses and go with the flow.

Deep: A Summer Weekend of Yoga with Barbara Benagh

Cited by Yoga Journal as “one of yoga’s most compelling and distinctive voices” Barbara Benagh’s way of practicing yoga asana has evolved into an inquiry that draws more attention to the path than the destination. And she has slowed the practice way down, allowing for a flow that offers an opportunity to dwell in the potent sensation of action, reaction and adaptability in an increasingly nuanced way.

Barbara style is unhurried, alignment based and rich with story. Her voice and cues carry students into the deep currents of movement that ripple through the whole body on the rhythm of breathing and the echo of the body’s memory of its aquatic origins in the sea.

This weekend is for experienced students. Location: Winsor School, 102 Pilgrim Rd., Boston, MA

Yoga for 50+

Yoga is a lifelong practice and, as in life, there are changes and challenges. As we age, there are inevitable physical changes. Our muscles and bones begin to lose mass, our organs age. In this workshop Barbara, 50+ herself, will offer a strategy for an asana practice that addresses these issues.

Just as importantly, with the wisdom of age we settle more comfortably into our skin inspiring a more contemplative and involuted yoga practice. Barbara will incorporate into the workshop breathwork and meditation to allow the wisdom of our years to permeate the asana practice.
