Workshop 1 – The Art of Ashtanga Yoga

{400pm – 630pm}

 

Through consistent practice our time on the mat can develop into a work of art, creating stillness in motion. Reaching a flow state in the practice comes from uniting all internal elements to then rest in awareness within our physical being.

In this workshop you will explore how to more deeply understand how your own practice can become a work of art in motion, developing awareness and strength throughout the body, mind and soul. You will start by cutting away excess energy draining movements as well as connecting to downward and upward flows of energy to then sit in a space of simplicity and concentration.

This will be an inspiring workshop giving space of simplicity and concentration.

Workshop 3: Primary Series in Detail

 2nd Half – Picking up from Bhuja pidasana and finishing with Setu bandasana

{400am – 630pm}

 

Primary Series, otherwise known as, Yoga Chikitsa or yoga therapy, is the foundation all the sequences of the Ashtanga Yoga systemare built upon and thus highly important. Not only is Primary Series the most important series but also preps the body/mind to open to greater states of awareness, concentration and stability. Learn to find steadiness and ease within each posture as we further investigate the intelligence behind the sequencing and the important application of drishti, bandhas and breath.

 

In addition, special attention will be focused on moving with conscious awareness, proceeding with conscious awareness, otherwise known as vinyasa. Trouble shooting areas of instability that may be present, learn how to thoroughly build strength, with care and attention, building upon internal alignment. This workshop is appropriate for new and established practitioners and is broken up into two workshop sessions.

Workshop 4: Backbending with Ease ( Liberate the Spine )

 1st Half – Beginning with Dandasana and working up to Navasana

{1000am – 1230pm}

 

The paradox of backbending is that we must be firm and soft at the same time, uniting the energy of strength and surrender. Learn the basic components of backbending with integrity to the natural flow of the body. In addition, learn to understand the concept of active release. When actively releasing, we experience the use of grounding mechanisms to establish the downward flow of energy while fully utilizing the breath to then be able to expand and deepen.

 

In this workshop learn the foundational techniques that allow the body to find its depth and strength while at the same time letting go. For all levels.
