A few words about the process we will follow

How does one hear a voice from deep within an unfamiliar place? Examine the structure of the place and practice the art of listening. The deepest listening enables us to hear innate knowledge, ergo express our true voice.

Yoga is a proven way to help us understand the true power behind our voice. We will turn ourselves upside down and inside out examining our personal power – love itself working through the instrument of the body.

If we want to hear what our soul is meant to express as our purpose in life, we must take time to be quiet and learn how to listen. And Zen Rocks is the perfect place to do this.

About Libby

A life long student of dance, acrobatics, piano and musicianship, Libby teaches classes infused with her life’s experience.  For her, the body is a vehicle through which we  may discover our existence and purpose.  The yoga practice refines our ability to use the tools available – our body and our inner as well as sensual experiences – to know our divine selves.

A practitioner since 2003, Libby received certification as a Jivamukti yoga teacher from founders Sharon Gannon and David life in 2007, and has since been teaching at yoga schools and festivals in the United States and Europe. She teaches regular classes and workshops at her yoga home, Love Yoga, in Kufstein, Austria.

In her classes, she caters to the possibilities of each student with a focus on alignment and flow. Her intent is for the students to work with their breath and intuition, focusing inner strength in order to direct what the physical body can achieve, resulting in a powerful sense of self-esteem. She teaches that the goal of yoga is to evidence the unity of the individual to all beings, and that, in so doing, one can realise strength and confidence through the practice and peace and happiness in life.

About Vocal Improvisation:
To paraphrase the internationally acclaimed improvisational vocalist Rhiannon, “Improvisation teaches us to look at our options, to keep listening for grace, and when we hear it, to move – now. Moment to moment is all there is, following one breath, one note, one idea at a time.”

That’s the space we work within when we improvise. It takes some attributes to enter that space, but musical experience is not one of them. All that is required is a willingness to try, to trust, to be a little fearless. To play with the ideas presented and just see how it feels and where they take you. To be open to whatever bubbles up from the inside, or that inspires from the outside. To take hold of the moment and give it voice.

Day 7: Chakra 6 – Role of humility in the awakening yogi

Asana Focus: head down, heart up

Day 8: Chakra 7 – The art of listening: Our conversations with Self
