PerMission to Play

PerMission to Play

Play is my mission. It is one of the most powerful and joyful aspects of my yoga and movement practice. But it is even more than that. Play helps me live life with more enthusiasm and willingness to take risks, learn new things, and to reach beyond my perceived capabilities–when permit ourselves to play, we all can!
Play (like practice) is voluntary. It cannot be forced, just offered and facilitated. Playful practice does not mean that discipline is not involved. Yet play is way to ease expectations and expand our options, to give ourselves permission to learn, experiment and explore. That is what we will be doing in this workshop: playing within our yoga practice and playing with movement. It will be a space and place where there is PerMission to Play!

About Carrie

Carrie Owerko has been teaching yoga and exploring the relationship between body, breath, and mind for several years. She holds a Senior Intermediate Iyengar teaching credential, is a certified Yoga Therapist (C-IAYT) and Functional Range Conditioning Mobility Specialist (FRCms), and continues her studies with the Iyengar family by traveling to India on a regular basis, as well as with continuous and in-depth studies with her yoga teacher, Patricia Walden. Over the years she has performed in and co-choreographed many yoga demonstrations, including Live: Light on Life, presented at City Center in NYC during BKS Iyengar’s Light on Life US National Book Tour in 2005.

Before studying yoga, Carrie earned a BFA in Dance and Theater, and graduated from the renowned Neighborhood Playhouse Theater School in NYC. Carrie then spent several years working for a Movement/Educational/Experimental Theater Company called The Irondale Ensemble Project. In addition to performing with Irondale she taught in the Alternative High Schools in NYC and at Rikers Island Correctional Facility. After Irondale, Carrie continued her inquiry and became a Movement Analyst (CMA) having completed her studies at The Laban Institute in NYC. She has spent years enthusiastically exploring human movement with the intention of helping people develop clearer, more fully embodied communication and expression.

Curiosity, openness, and affection are of the utmost importance in her approach to Iyengar Yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and the poetic imagination in the yoga practice. Most importantly, she loves to explore the relationship of discipline and playfulness and is a firm believer in the power of controlled folly.
