Back to the future
A Forward and Back bending Workshop
vinyasa open-level, meditation, psychology, neuroscience and discussion
Join salema to explore and reflect on the science and practice of yoga through eastern psychology and western science.
In the eastern psychology, specific yoga poses are said to represent a certain psychology and philosophy. For example forward bends are said to represent the past whilst back bends represent the future. Sometimes in forward bending we can be confronted with difficult or painful memories and emotions. However in order to move forward we first have to acknowledge, accept and process the past by bringing it into the present to resolve before we can truly move forward.
Memories are shaped by our experiences in life and they give us the opportunity for introspection and learning, shaping how we see ourselves and others. More importantly from a scientific perspective the brain needs to remember and normally does so through repetition. However equally important for good brain health lays in the learning of new things to maintain plasticity.
Learn about the associated brain areas that are responsible for the mechanisms of attention regulation, body awareness, emotional regulation and change in perspective on the self. As you move through a well articulated sequence focusing on forward bends and back bends with longer holds to challenge the brain, mind and ego.
