Finding the Twist - w/ Kevin Courtney
Twists, when approached intelligently have the capacity to bring our awareness deep into the core of the body, massage the internal organs and stimulate the release of unconsciously held tension.
In this asana based workshop we’ll explore twisting our way into a clear, luminous and awakened state of stillness. Combing alignment based techniques, some philosophical reference points, breathing practices and meditation, the aim of this time together will be experiencing clarity both deep in the body and mind.
Kevin Courtney is recognized for his innovative and authentic teaching style, weaving classical Hatha yoga and contemporary Vinyasa sequences with the ancient art of Qi Gong, and Kundalini kriyas.
Inspired by his primary teacher Nikki Costello, and influenced by the teachings of Richard Freeman, Swami Satchidananda, & B.K.S. Iyengar, his goal is to foster an inspired learning environment so students can explore for themselves the deeper meaning of the practice.
Kevin is also a founding member of Nada Sadhana. A music project creating contemporary instrumental music for yoga and movement. Their first album, Volume I: The Brooklyn Sessions, became one of the most listened to albums in yoga studios across the country and is available on iTunes. They currently are in the studio recoding Vol. II: The Nosara Sessions.
He lives in Brooklyn New York, teaches at Kula Yoga Project and holds workshops, trainings and retreats around the globe.
