EvenFlow with Lauren DAngelo!
Balance is essential to all things. Sthira and Sukha are the sanskirt words that best describe this balance.
Sukha translates to pleasurable, joyful, agreeable, easy, comfort, happy, prosperous, and relaxed. It is the opposite of pain or discomfort. Sukha evokes a “good space” in asana is the comfort that arises when the joints and bones are harmoniously aligned with gravity and when the muscles are free of strain. At the energetic level, sukha manifests an easy flow of breath, along with a meditative quality of joy and satisfaction.
Sthira translates into firm, stable, challenge, strength, endurance, and fortitude. Sthira evokes the ability to “hold steady” in an asana. True Sthira arises when the muscles are evenly engaged and free of tension and strain. Through Sthira, the breath becomes rhythmic and the mind becomes patient and vigilant, observing what arises moment to moment.
Join Lauren as she guides you through a workshop style sukha and sthira practice. Beginning with a moderate paced vinyasa flow to cultivate movement and strength, followed by a restorative practice with more nurturing poses to give extra attention to breath and mindfulness and to welcome in transformation, softening, and letting go.
During the restorative portion of the class, extra props will be used, including blocks, bolsters, blankets and straps, and hands on assists to help deepen the poses that are being held. A blend of essentials oils will also be offered to awaken the sense of smell.
EvenFlow is perfect for restoring a sense of balance, peace and well-being to the body, mind and spirit.
