Shanti Yoga for Self Expression

  • SW Neighorhood Library 900 Wesley Place Southwest Washington, DC, 20024 United States

Join WithLoveDC for a workshop lead by Rimi Basu! Shakti Yoga for Self ExpressionTM is yoga for YOU - This transformative practice helps unlock creativity and self-reliance through exploration and honoring of our individual bodies and minds. It is yoga of self-expression and improvisation, through which we learn to rely on our body and instincts to guide us through the practice, rather than rigidly set sequences presented by instructors. In the beginning of the class, a combination of asana and vinyasa drived from Tantra Hatha Yoga, as well as God and Goddess dance poses are presented, which will help us feel and tune in to the places of tension in our bodies. From there, we take the reins to move in ways that feel right and natural to the body in the moment. These may not always be the poses that are seen on magazine covers, but they can be the most effective poses for dissolving tension.
