The Activated Inner Body: standing poses and backbends

  • Yogawood 817 Haddon Ave Collingswood, NJ 08108 (map)

Yogawood's Avanced Yoga Training continues with the first of three weekends with master teacher Marni Sclaroff.


Come learn to awaken the interior spaces of the body, mind, and heart as you uncover the power of asana that vibrates beneath the forms of the poses. We know that yoga is so much more than what we see on the outside,yet not many of us understand how to truly unlock the gateways to the potential of the inner body.


In this weekend long session, you will learn how activate your own interior using alignment principles that transform and heal. We will use the powers of observation, hands-on assisting, and personal practice to demystify alignment principles. You will receive all the tools you need to transform the inner structure of the body in yourself and others, for radiant health and vitality.

This weekend is dedicated to the principles of alignment that empower standing postures and backbends in ways that create a restructuring of the body and positive transformation. This will be a weekend of deepening your practice, expanding your edges, activating your core, aligning your heart, refining your vision and recommitting to what really matters to you.

On Saturday, the asana practice will awaken the root system of the body, to heal, open and transform the hips and low back. This practice will be opened to yoga teachers and other dedicated students.  

On Sunday the practice is just open to yoga teachers. We will practice together, and illuminate the more subtle activation of the core of the body in deeper asanas. You will practice observing, hands-on assisting, and teaching theprinciples. You will also understand how to access more advanced postures through intelligent sequencing and balanced action.
