🔸 Authentic Movement


at YOGA SOUP (28 PARKER WAY SANTA BARBARA, California 93101)

Fourth Sunday of each month



The form of Authentic Movement is like an arrow into the inner landscape. People in the two roles of the practice: witness and mover, agree to enter a mystery. The agreements of the form offer a unique situation for the mover to focus on the sensations, personal imagery, memories, thoughts, and emotions that arise. The mover can be still or move on the outside. The action is inside. The witness supports the mover's process with their attention creating a container amidst the agreement that the other's experience is a mystery. 

It is an experience of something that we all know. Ideally, an internal self senses an environment where it is right to go deep. Whatever happens in the movement time, we harvest the experience with care, weaving the present moment and the recent past with words and adding our individual understanding to the power of the group.
