UK: Toward Greater Equanimity: A Vinyasa Flow Workshop with Mimi Kuo-Deemer at The Life Centre

| 09-02, 2010

London | Sun 19 Sept, 2010

Mimi Kuo-Deemer is leading a Vinyasa Flow Workshop entitled “Toward Greater Equanimity” at The Life Centre in London on September 19th, 2010.
We have all felt that in our daily lives we sometimes need an energetic boost, while other times we feel like seeking out a calm, quiet rest. Both these tendencies are aimed at bringing our bodies and minds toward a state of balance, or homeostasis. In this workshop, we will learn how we use breath, postures and sequences in Vinyasa Yoga to generate equilibrium and steadiness in our bodies, thoughts and actions. We will explore some of the ways in which poses and counter-poses can be used to equalize our muscular, skeletal and nervous systems and bring us toward greater equanimity.
A dynamic and enlivening vinyasa-based class will prepare the body for moving into deeper, longer held postures. A restful and rejuvenating finish will be followed by a heart-focused meditation. Whether a beginner, intermediate or advanced practitioner, the intention is to take each individual to the state where boundaries and limits may be skillfully explored. With effort and grace, this Yoga Workshop can help clarify the ways in which anyone can achieve greater equanimity and calm.

    Sometimes I need to make adjustments in my sun salutations. I didn’t know there are actual proper ways of making these adjustments, but I saw Leeann Carey’s free yoga video on this exact thing and it really helped. Thought your readers might benefit from it:
