Principles of Active Practice




info@thepathyoga.com | 604.562.1944

Understanding tensegrity helps us to become like the willow in a storm. Supple and strong, we learn to use the forces not fight forces that move through us. We will learn to balance the natural forces of compression and tension within the body and to find harmony between appropriate tone and relaxation in your posture.

This workshop will support you in understanding how to hold joints in neutral space and leave you with an expanded view of how your core can support your practice.
