The Power of Play in Practice: There is a Way

Feeling the spark of possibility is like seeing the sun shine through on a cloudy day. Play opens us up to a sense of what might be possible if we were to give ourselves the permission to move, and think, differently. And play—like yoga—is about process. One of the brilliant facets of a disciplined practice that is infused with play is that the seemingly impossible can indeed feel possible. When we are in a state of play, everything works a little better—and we open ourselves up to an experience of both discipline and delight! 
We will use this playful approach to explore the various challenges that the practice presents in a way that is not only fun, but allows for this sense of possibility. Through playful yet skillful practice we will approach familiar poses in new ways, and learn new poses as well. The practice will be deep, but also light hearted.

Carrie Owerko has been teaching yoga and exploring the relationship between body, breath and mind for several years. She holds a Senior Intermediate Iyengar teaching credential and continues her studies with the Iyengar family by traveling to India on a regular basis, as well as by continuous and in-depth studies with her teacher, Patricia Walden.Over the years she has performed in and co-choreographed many yoga demonstrations, including Live: Light on Life, performed at NYC's City Center during BKS Iyengar's Light on Life US National Book Tour in 2005.Before studying yoga, Carrie worked as a Movement Analyst after having completed her studies at The Laban Institute in NYC. She studied theatre and dance in college and has spent years exploring human movement, meaning and communication.Curiosity, openness, and affection are of the utmost importance in her approach to Iyengar Yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and the poetic imagination in the yoga practice. Most importantly, she loves to explore the relationship of discipline and playfulness and is a firm believer in the power of controlled folly.
