YOGA SHANTI GOLD: What Do I Do With My Head?

Aired -

The placement of your head in any given asana is a game changer. Weighing in at an average of 11 pounds, the human head can feel like a bowling ball in triangle pose and a heavy foot in headstand. Furthermore, it is the center of your perceptual body excluding your skin and where you point it often controls what you perceive. If your head placement integrates with the architecture of the rest of the body it can often feel sublime and whole.  Join us for an exploration of location, location, location and learn some fundamentals of where to place your head.

About Yoga Shanti Gold:
Usually (though not always*) on the third Sunday of the month YOU help select the topics for our Yoga Shanti Gold sessions; one philosophical pondering and a specific asana! Colleen Saidman Yee and Rodney Yee weave these into a 30-minute asana practice* followed by a 30-minute talk with Q&A session. Yoga Shanti Gold sessions take place over Zoom so that we can foster community with an up-close and personal vibe. The discourse will be generated by deeply harvested questions. Anyone can attend—there are no prerequisites besides a Beginner's Mind and a desire to explore yoga and its core principles! Participants are not required to participate in the asana portion or discussions; sitting, observing, and listening are equally welcome.

*Occasionally Yoga Shanti Gold happens on a different Sunday of the month due to scheduling conflicts.
