HEALING CHRONIC PAIN & INJURY WITH YOGA & MEDITATION with Julia Lorimer

Instructor: Julia Lorimer
Fees:

Levels: All

Each workshop will help you to identify the cause and the effect of tension patterns that can lead to chronic pain and injuries. Each of these workshops will provide you with effective and long-lasting series to release tension and pain from your body. Presented in simple language, Julia will demonstrate alignment principles for achieving balance, core strength and deep breathing as they apply to various body regions and conditions.

The activities of daily living including sitting, standing and moving will become sources of healing and less sources of stress, tension and pain. You will gain a deeper sense of resilience from the wear and tear of life as you move through the world.

Guided meditations taught in class help you to calm your reactions to the stresses of life. They provide a quiet place to relax in your own stable presence and to discover yourself more healed and whole. In meditation, the wayward mind is led back to its own source, your own benign presence, where you are free of everything unwanted, simple and free. These guided meditations are based in non-dual teachings gleaned from the Vedanta scriptures, the Yoga Sutras, and the Bhagavad Gita as taught by Swami Dayananda.

Classes will focus on freeing yourself from pain in the following areas
- May 19: Lower Back & Sciatica
- June 16: Shoulders & Wrists
- July 21: Feet, Knees & Hips
- Aug. 18: Neck & Upper Back

- Saturday, August 25 • 10:30 am – 12:30 pm AND 2:30 – 4:30 pm

WE are very happy to welcome Kofi back to the Yoga Center of Marin. Kofi brings over 40 years of teaching wisdom to the practice of Yoga. A longtime and advanced student and teacher in the Iyengar tradition, Kofi’s teaching style is unique. Rather than providing details for each pose, Kofi guides from storytelling. Through his stories, he shows his students that the whole of life informs our yoga, and that yoga can infuse the whole of our lives. He will challenge you both physically and intellectually.

Kofi welcomes students from all backgrounds and lineages of yoga. Iyengar experience, while helpful, is not required. Some maturity and understanding of asana is useful as the poses are often long-held and basic alignment required.

Along with asana practice, there will be time for chanting and question and answer in the afternoon sessions. Bring your questions. Kofi’s insight is very keen and helpful. Be sure to let him know if you need some guidance or help with a specific issue or condition.

KOFI BUSIA is one of the world’s foremost teachers in the Iyengar tradition. He has been teaching for over 40 years, and has held his Advanced Certificate from BKS Iyengar for 35 years. He has taught and is recognized all over the world. He began yoga as a student at Oxford University and has taught professionally ever since. Throughout the 1970s and until the mid-1980s, he studied regularly with BKS Iyengar in Pune, India.

Although he has lived most of his life in Oxford, England, he is currently based in Santa Cruz, California, where he is putting the finishing touches to three planned books, one of which is an original translation and commentary, direct from the Sanskrit, of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
