Yoga and the martial art of aikido share the goal of a tension-free body that uses energy wisely and efficiently. Aikido has been referred to as "moving meditation while under attack." Yoga has warrior poses. What do they have in common? In this workshop, Malory Graham, yoga instructor and 6th degree black belt with 30 years in aikido, will look at both arts as ways to get out of your head and inhabit the body. Both practices strive to awaken energy, connect us with our center and cultivate the skill of relaxing under pressure. We'll look at yoga poses that support a deeper understanding of aikido and martial awareness. If you are a martial artist this session will give you some easily actionable exercises for developing more flexibility and core strength. If you are a yogi, this session will add a little badass to your warrior pose.
