This workshop is a playful exploration of the history of postural practice through the practice of ?sana. We will take the long view, recreating and embodying practices via textual descriptions and material evidence from as long ago as 2,500 years. We will also explore modes of instruction, from textual reconstruction to Sanskrit counted sequences to self-practice. This workshop will safely approximate historical forms in a manner appropriate for all levels of experience and ability. Some experience of postural practice will help.
