We will be attuning to the fluctuation of the cerebrospinal fluid during the workshop. Working in the conjunction with the spiralling nature of the connective tissue in the body arising from these tidal forces, we feel the vibrational nature of life force: Primary Respiration. When people can feel and find this fluid nature within themselves, they can enter more deeply the asanas which yoga provides, without strain, with ease and brings us closer to the other limbs of yoga to which we aspire within our consciousness.
The process of union within the self, in harmony with all nature, is a meaning of yoga: ‘to yoke’ or unite the polarities. The ascending and descending forces in the body seek this balance and is reflected in the Breath of Life present not only in the breath of air, but the cellular expansion and contraction. It is stated that the highest stage in yoga is reached when the vital air passes through the sushumna, the central channel. This is referenced in osteopathy when we observe the transmutation of the cerebrospinal fluids occuring in a centered field of dynamic stillness.
