Patrick Oancia: Freestyle Hatha Yoga Intensive- Bali Spirit Yoga Studio Ubud, Bali, Indonesia.

March 25, 2006 - March 26, 2006

The basis of Patrick's Bali weekend intensive 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.

This workshop will combine dynamic vinyasa style sequencing with multiple posture variations for more of a heat intensive, purifying practice. Also integrating a more restorative yin style approach to induce a better understanding of how the practice can affect the meridian system and specific organs to enhance physical balance, inside out. Patrick will also encourage holding active postures for longer periods to stimulate and promote purification of the lymphatic system.

This combination of free style hatha asana brings about a sense of balance in physical practice that complements a very meditative quality. In turn leading to altered perceptions, and psycho-spiritual transformation.
