What do we mean when we use the term alignment? How are we distinguishing between posture and alignment? And how does our yoga practice inform our everyday movement, alignment, posture, and perspective?
Our yoga practice can serve our capacity to live a more fully embodied life. And by cultivating a dynamic sense of alignment we can increase not only our awareness but our ability to respond or do things in a variety of ways. Because life is unpredictable and dynamic, we need to be able to respond to life's ever changing circumstances in multiple ways, depending upon what we encounter. Through an exploration of dynamic alignment we are better able to respond to life's many joys and difficulties with a stable, yet fluid, grace.
In this workshop we will look at alignment as a process of exploring how things work rather than getting too caught up in how they look (that is, function over mere appearance). In this way alignment is an expressive and optimal functionality that is sustainable over time. Come and play with the process of dynamic alignment.
Carrie Owerko has been teaching yoga and exploring the relationship between body, breath and mind for several years. She holds a Senior Intermediate Iyengar teaching credential and continues her studies with the Iyengar family by traveling to India on a regular basis, as well as by continuous and in-depth studies with her yoga teacher, Patricia Walden. Over the years she has performed in and co-choreographed many yoga demonstrations, including Live: Light on Life, presented at City Center in NYC during BKS Iyengar's Light on Life US National Book Tour in 2005..
Before studying yoga, Carrie earned a BFA in Dance and Theater, and graduated from the renowned Neighborhood Playhouse Theater School in NYC.
Curiosity, openness and affection are of the utmost importance in her approach to Iyengar Yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and the poetic imagination in the yoga practice. Most importantly, she loves to explore the relationship of discipline and playfulness and is a firm believer in the power of controlled folly.
