Event Details

Heart Opening Practice for the Upper Body with Elizabeth G


In this workshop we will explore what it means to open one’s heart to the treshold of endless love within. How do we keep our hearts open in the midst of great division in our nation?. How do we cultivate the qualities of the heart so we can truly become sensitive to the underlying connection and union at the heart of all creation.

You will participate in a mindful alignment- based yoga practice, design to loosen up tightness in the upper body and to create more freedom in the sides of the body, shoulders and neck. You will also participate in a group meditation, establishing a steady foundation to support our inner journey into the heart.

About the teacher, Elizabeth Gonzalez
Cuando Elizabeth González se intereso por la Yoga solo conocía los beneficios físicos de la práctica, pero más tarde aprendió un poco mas acerca de los cánticos, ejercicios de respiración (pranayama), la meditación y la filosofía del yoga en general. Durante su entrenamiento de 200 horas de yoga en Laughing Lotus, ella fue inspirada por sus maestros para llevar una práctica de meditación y yoga regular. Esto marco el principio de una travesia extraordinaria al mundo interno. Despues de practicar y aprender diferentes estilos de yoga, Elizabeth probo su primera clase de Anusara yoga en Ecuador. Ella se enamoro de la filosofia afirmativa de Anusara y de los principios universales de alineamiento que crearon un nivel de profundidad y complejidad que nunca habia experimentado antes. Ella finalizo su entrenamiento de 200hr de Anusara yoga y un entrenamiento para ensenar yoga para ninos en el 2013. Ella crea secuencias que permiten que el cuerpo fluya libremente de una pose a la otra, permitiendo que la respiración se convierta en el puente entre el cuerpo y la mente, y de esta forma enfocando la practica en el aquí y el ahora. Sus clases son una positiva celebración de la vida y ella se inspira en la simplicidad de la vida y la grandeza del alma humana. Ella anima a sus estudiantes a conectarse con los ritmos naturales del cuerpo, prestando atención. y cuidado al alineamiento fisico, permitiendo que las posturas sean una expresion de la energia del corazón. Ella invita a sus estudiantes a experiementar la fuente de la verdad, la consciencia y la felicidad dentro de ellos mismos.

Elizabeth Gonzalez was first drawn to Yoga for the physical benefits of the practice; soon after she learned about chanting, pranayama, meditation and the yoga philosophy as a whole. During her first 200 hour yoga training at Laughing Lotus, she was inspired by her teachers to develop her own daily meditation and yoga practices. She now develops sequences that allow the body to flow freely from one pose to the next. She aspires to create a deep connection between the movement and the breath, allowing the breath to become the bridge between the body and the thinking mind; bringing the practice of yoga to the here and now. Her classes are a joyful celebration of living and she draws her inspiration from the simplicity of life and the greatness of the human soul.
