Foundation & Balance - a yoga immersion to bring more commitment and depth to your practice with Chad Hamrin

Immersions are great for the simple reason that we can spend a good amount of time and get serious in going deeper into the art of yoga and what that involves. Seeing how yoga, when practiced with a commitment, with a depth, can effect us on deeper levels and seeing how a good practice can prepare and open you for this. To bring it into your day to day life.
This immersion will cover many many aspects , fun, informative and always a little bit of work. I will teach this as if it were a bit of how I would teach my teacher training.
Open to all levels.

1st Session:
Meditative asana.
To bring a meditative quality to your asana practice one must first have certain tools to use to train the mind to focus, to become steady, to begin to notice and discern certain aspects of what it is that we are doing in the moment, in this case asana. But this also lays the foundation for higher levels of practice as pranayama and more formal meditative practices. we will discus and practice the many ways to begin a mindful practice, some of which you already know and many many that will be quite new.

2nd Session:
Foundation and balance
The feet are considered our foundation when standing, but are they when sitting, inversions , in backbends????Does the way we use the feet open the spine in a healthy way?
Do we know how to find our “seat” when standing or in any asana for that matter.
Balance is also part of our foundational understanding, using mind, body and breath in a state of attentiveness. Similar to the hara in asian society and martial arts. Balance is a dynamic experience,
subtle movement patterns intuitively aligned.

3rd Session:
Pelvic floor, health and moola bandha
Pelvic floor health has been medically acknowledged as being physically, mentally and emotionally of great importance. Good breathing is one example. Yoga practitioners have a deeper ,more experiential, way of understanding the pelvic floor, mostly thru the use of moola bandha. It has a direct relation to effecting subtle changes in the brain/mind and moving us toward inner harmony, as well as the basic health purposes and good breathing, which is why it is used in pranayama and meditative practices. I will introduce you to a basic understanding of this dynamic practice.

4th Session:
Core Stability
When one talks or thinks about core work, one usually thinks about abdominal work, strength work, but in yoga anatomically and energetically it is so much more. Yes you need to know about abdominal toning in the beginning, but usually too much emphasis is put on certain muscles groups and not enough on others. There are deeper more intrinsic ways to look at good core integrity, good hara, good prana, steady mind, and always coming back to the breath.
In the foundational sense good core starts with the pada bandha and works its way into the stabilizing of the spine.
