True nectar is said to be composed of compassion, insight, and humor. It is released from the root of the palate when the inhaling pattern of prana and the exhaling pattern of apana unite to form mulabandha into a proper mudra. Ashtanga Vinyasa is the continuous cultivation of this fine ambrosial drink achieved by following a thread of its flavor through and between postures, breaths, thoughts, and techniques. In this class we will explore opening and then releasing vivid, internal, organic anatomy patterns in sync with the breath. This method fully uses the imagination to feel complementary full-body patterns that, when interfaced with each other, open the central channel. The repeated practice of these internal forms eventually frees us from that very same imagination bringing technical skills to life with a taste of kindness and humor.
