Guest Teacher Sarita Lou

Sarita’s yoga practice is concerned with cultivating equanimity in the body and mind. She is a firm believer in the body’s innate wisdom and tends to offer a fiery flow, which softens internal dialogue and allows the body to take the lead. Based on the intuitive knowledge of the body, her classes are crafted to increase confidence and self-belief in the practitioner. Every practice offers several minutes of self-practice in which the student leads themselves through asana, therefore claiming the practice for themselves and hopefully, listening to their bodies particular wants and needs.

Sarita’s teaching philosophy is based on listening. As a teacher she “listens” using all her senses, intuitively crafting a practice for her students. In this space of deep listening you, the student, are compelled to listen to yourself. You are more able to notice repetitive thoughts, habits and patterns. Cultivating this type of deep listening also allows us to respond to our bodies impulses – leading to a deeper connection to self, and encouraging deep listening in other aspects of our lives.

Yoga is just one of Sarita’s passions, the other being dance. Sarita was based in New York for seven years, working as a B’way choreographer and creative movement teacher. She is currently deepening her understanding of the body and her own creative practice by attending Trinity Laban Conservatoire in London.

Workshops

Embody Your Anatomy

Investigating the structural realities of the physical body, leading to greater freedom and fluidity in everyday movements!

Great for advanced practitioners, yoga teachers or anyone curious about fundamental truths of our anatomy, this workshop series will help answer the mysterious questions that the body often brings up. Such as – what is the relationship between the eyes and the hips? Or – why can focusing on one part of the body bring relief to another?

This joyful investigation will borrow concepts from dance somatic therapies and the long lineage of teachers dedicated to creating more ease and freedom in the body. Through movement, visualization and partner work we will increase our understanding of what the body is doing and supporting us in doing. Most students that have taken this workshop experience sensations such as lightness and spaciousness – specifically in the hips.

Being offered over the course of three afternoons Embody Your Anatomy is an opportunity to dive deep into the poetic truths that help us move with more sensitivity and awareness. This work offers those with deep anatomical knowledge a way of experiencing their anatomy, versus academically understanding it. To celebrate a newfound relationship to our boney structure the final workshop will culminate in a dance party in which our bones will sing!

***Each workshop is 90 min. $40 each. Package Price is $108.
