The Yoga of Chocolate: A Journey of the Senses

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

With the practice of pratyahara you can cultivate a more intimate relationship to your experience of sensation. A less common translation of the word pratyahara is ‘to recover the senses'. In this workshop, chocolate and asana will be the vehicles which we will use to cultivate that sensitivity, as our eyes, nose, mouth, tongue, heart, and whole body take in the delicate subtleties in the different varieties of chocolate. Combined with the chocolate tastings, we will explore SATYA, somatic movement techniques developed by Tias Little, to further heighten that awareness. In this workshop, chocolate will be used as a means of directing the participants' attention inward, and not at all as a gimick. The aim is to use chocolate as a way of encouraging people to slow down and really taste, savor, and enjoy their present moment experiences, whatever they may be ( (this one they will hopefully find especially delicious!) Combining the chocolate tasting with the SATYA work from Tias Little (SATYA stands for 'somatic awareness training for yoga asana' will allow the attendees to go deeper and deeper inward through a variety of different means, both complementing one another...as they become more attuned to the smell, texture, tastes of the chocolate during the tastings, their awareness of subtle physical sensation during the movement will be heightened as well!
