Structural Yoga Therapy: Introduction to the Joint Freeing Series with Nitya Martino

An experiential workshop based on Structural Yoga Therapy (SYT) as developed by Mukunda Stiles.  The Joint Freeing Series is the basis for all the movements of the large joints of the body. By learning how to slow down and isolate the movements in the JFS the physical as well as the mental and emotional body (the Kosha’s) will be profoundly effected, moving Prana, strengthening, and stretching body, mind and spirit.  JFS, Pavanmuktasana – “energy freeing practice”

   “Structural Yoga™ relies on a deep respect for the body’s innate capacity for safe healthy movement and healing. This translates to a way of teaching that invites the body to find its own optimal way of moving and building strength, without the use of many props or hands-on corrections that might ultimately hinder self-awareness and the slow careful development of the muscles that are needed to develop a full yoga practice” ~ Mukunda Stiles
