She has been practicing for 28 years and teaching since 1995. Tina was Ian's first teacher and the catalyst for his conversion to yoga.
Marut suggests that the breath is wild and magical, like lightening, Let go of your civllised self and welcome your wildness, your storms. You are part of nature, part of the Earth, a dynamic and self sustaining little system within the larger ecosphere.
The vayus are the winds or currents of life-force energy in the body that facilitate the circulation of prana throughout our entire being.
As one of the five elements breathing, breath.
Vayu also means desired by appetite, and this meaning points to life itself as driving our practice. Life’s hunger for prana, for air, is what gives to this practice.
This Jivamukti workshop emphasizes the importance of energetic alignment within movement, intention, bandha and dristi, and of course breath itself.
Breath is exciting, and it propels itself. If you want to know peace, let the breath excite you.
samana – drawing inward of energy
vyana – expansive energy
udana – rising energy
apana – grounding and releasing energy
prana vayu – which is the all-encompassing movement of energy.
These are expressed through Jivamukti vigorous practice and sequencing using pulsing, body and rhythmic strict vinyasa.
