The Art of Unclenching

  • Yoga Tree Potrero 1500 16th St 94103 (map)

Have you ever noticed your feet curled up in your shoes while stuck in traffic? Or your teeth pressed together while sorting through to-do’s? It’s the byproduct of this clenching that causes fatigue, both physical and existential. Thankfully for us though, voluntary relaxation is at the pinnacle of yoga. As the mind sharpens through practice, one comes to recognize that postures no longer deepen through effort and strength, but instead through control over the nervous system. It is the defense mechanisms therein where dis-ease arises. In this workshop we will practice the art of unclenching through methodical restorative yoga as well as a brief time in seated meditation.
