Patrick Oancia: All level freestyle hatha yoga workshop and discussions.
The basis of all of Patrick's teaching is to elaborate on full integration of body dynamics, meditation, pranayama, and self-inquiry. Patrick approaches teaching asana in various different ways to directly address different aspects of the physical practice and how that can manifest into life experience. Patrick will lecture about full integration of yoga experience into modern day life. His belief is not connected with any one particular tradition. It is based on his desire to share life experience in an open and nurturing way.
This workshop will prepare beginner students to attend YogaJaya level 1 to 3 led public classes.
