When does yoga happen in our practice, and how? Prashant Iyengar has said that yoga is not something we do, but rather, "yoga happens on you." We know when we do our practice or when we take a class that we perform a series of postures or breathing practices according to instructions that we are given or according to our memory of how to do them. But when, in all of that doing, does yoga happen? Is yoga always happening when we practice? How can its happening be facilitated? How is it that the bringing together of body, mind, and breath creates the conditions under which yoga might happen?

In this workshop we will practice, but we will also endeavor to watch how we practice so that yoga can happen. In the morning we will work in experimental ways on standing and seated poses, as well as some inversions and supine poses. In the afternoon, we will work on backward extensions, on inversions, and on pranayama. Participants are encouraged to bring two identical wooden pencils with them, as we will make use of them in a couple of our experiments.
