"What I learned at the Solstice intensive
Driving my car, eating and even sleeping, I never noticed the natural tension in my shoulders while doing even some of the activities that are supposed to be some of the most relaxing. Now, after Brigitte Longueville’s intensive, I have become more conscious of these tension areas my body has created.
For me, yoga has helped me to understand my body, how it works and ways to make each and every muscle work better together to create one fluid being. However, because of the Back Mitra and concentrated muscle work, I have become more aware of how to help conditioning them to work better for other muscles and my body as a whole.
It was interesting to see that the years of tension in my shoulders have created a “compaction” in my chest not allowing the mobility that should be in those areas. Knowing there is too much strength in my lower back, which helps me to understand why some poses come more easily and others are harder because my lower back does not flex, or relax, to allow me to properly execute the asana how it was intended. But over the course of the days I also come to the understanding that it was ok to have these problems, as long as you work to help them.
Brigitte’s expertise in muscle therapy is also evident by her repetitive asana series. Her conditioning seems to train your muscles over time. Each day, after the first two cycles, the ability to repeat them seemed to be endless.
I think what I took away more from the intensive, however, was a “mantra” that Brigitte instilled in me without even knowing it. The phrase “this is work” is something I now repeat to myself at times to realize that sometimes it is work to help release what we need to find that perfect balance on and off the mat."
