Into the Body of Emotion: Expansion & Refinement

with Gabriel Axel

Emotions are the centre of gravity of our day-to-day experience. They influence the nervous system and our perceptions and judgments of self, body, and world. This workshop offers a much-deserved treatment of emotional experience in self-development, using movement and stillness. We will dive into techniques for activating expansive emotional states and leveraging them to uproot long-standing emotional blockages that give rise to restrictive thought patterns and somatic/bodily tensions. The result will be a foundational toolkit for emotional processing and balance in self-development.

The workshop will consist of lecture, guided instruction, light asana/movement, seated introspection, discussion, and a backdrop of supportive live instrumentals. Suitable for all levels. Practitioners are invited to bring a mat, cushion, and pen and paper for note-taking as desired.

Gabriel Axel, M.Sc., E-RYT-500, is PhD candidate, neuroscientist, educator, musician, and author of a forthcoming book on neuroscience and yoga.
