Explore The Body As Energy: Learn from a Master: Tao Porchon-Lynch
Explore the tools and essence of yoga through a master’s eyes. In this workshop you will become aware of the energy that invigorates your life. Learn how to tap your own energy in a way that creates unity between breath, body, mind and spirit, while experiencing breathing, twists, stretches, vinyasas and meditation.
To achieve a sound structure of body-mind consciousness, Tao brings into play the meaning of yoga, in the flow of the vinyasas—the power that links them with the eternal energy of the universe in the “Dance of Life”-meditation in motion. A deeply absorbing meditation inspiring deep compassion and inner peace will conclude the workshop.
