Explore the ‘myriad manifestations of duality’ with Tim Miller

Every spring or early summer, Tim Miller leads a fund-raising yoga workshop to benefit the Sean O’Shea Foundation. Here’s our report from last year’s.

We may — for reasons that I’m sure will become apparent during the course of the next few days — not be able to make this year’s. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t. It may, in fact, mean the opposite.

And it just so happens the workshop is all about opposites. A taste:

In this workshop we will explore the myriad manifestations of duality that the practice of Asana and Pranayama provide for us and learn how we can begin to harmonize these forces to create balance.  Central to this process is the conscious use of breath to link body and mind, facilitate more stability and receptivity, and move with greater ease and intelligence.  We will explore the notion of “Reciprocal Inhibition”—the complimentary actions of opposing muscles to provide both greater strength and flexibility—and the importance of the interplay of pose/counterpose.   In addition we will learn the practical application of Mula Bandha and Uddhiyana Bandha to develop both Roots and Wings in our Asana and Pranayama practice.

The event is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 27. The cost is $60, with the proceeds going to the foundation.

Good cause, good chance to learn. What else do you need?
