Kanga Yoga: Exploring Ecstatic Breath and Internal Imagery
Kanga Yoga is an energetic, alignment?based flow yoga practice using music, gravity and breath to rediscover and rejuvenate the body and mind. The practice is inspired by the teachings of Swami Sivananda, Yogacharya B.K.S. Iyengar and Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois and the healing system of Ayurveda. Kanga Yoga adapts the practice to the individual and integrates sound into the practice to bring the body and mind into balance and harmony
This workshop focuses on musicality, use of weight, release and expressive flowing movement. Lauren explores ecstatic breath and internal imagery to elevate somatic experience and transcendent awareness
