Yoga and Body-Mind Centering™: The Senses
Anatomy expert, Lisa Clark, is a leading innovator teaching the integration of Yoga and Body-Mind Centering™. Developed by Bonnie Bainbridge-Cohen, Body-Mind Centering™ looks at the relationship of movement to all the systems of the body, not just the musculo-skeletal system. While muscles and bones are vitally important organizing principles for teaching yoga and movement, we will use this weekend to explore how the body/mind organizes itself around the sense organs and the information they bring us. With the felt impact of sacred poetry this work will help you explore the layers of the skin and touch; proprioception, the vestibular system and balance; hearing; smell, and vision. This weekend of practices will draw the senses inward into meditative, intuitive states of awareness integrating all 8 limbs of yoga. Lisa will use the familiar language of both active and restorative asana and movement in her explorations, and they are immediately applicable to teaching yoga students of all levels.
Students who studied with Lisa last summer found her work to be transformative for their personal practice and work with students and clients. This workshop will be invaluable for yogis with at least Level 2 or Modified Primary series experience, yoga teachers of any style, and body workers and movement professionals (with some yoga experience.) Price includes a special Indian head wrap prop that will be used during the weekend.
Dates: Saturday, May 15, 10:45am-6pm & Sunday, May 16, 9am-4:30pm
Cost: $215.00 if paid by April 16; $240.00 thereafter.

Attention: Please remember that the proximity of our building to High Street and its many hidden corridors make it a target for theft and other crimes. For the safety of yourself and others and the security of your belongings and department equipment, it is important to lock doors behind you outside of regular business hours and relock equipment closets immediately after opening. Also, do not leave a room unattended if in contains valuables or equipment. It only takes a moment for something to be stolen.

• Studio closets
• Musicians closets
• Production room
• GA/Fellowship office (the doors facing the outside hallway should also remain closed)
