Workshop 1. Anahata Chakra Vinyasa
Flow through a sequence of postures that will bring your heart chakra back into balance and complete harmony. We will explore many different ways of working with and without props, along with physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of a backbend. Your heart will dance through the fine art of balancing and effortless surrender. We will work on bringing more awareness to pranayama and ujjayi breathing in this workshop, acknowledging the lungs as an integral part of this body region, as well as the role our breath-work plays in the practice.
Workshop 2: Detox Flow Vinyasa
Opening the hips begins by cultivating awareness of the challenges we hold in our hips and pelvic region. While we work to release this tension, we can begin to relax and strengthen the quads, the inner and outer muscles of the thighs and also stretch the hamstrings. While unlocking this area of our body, we will also free the spine with twists which can infuse the body with vitality and well being, releasing enormous amounts of tension. Twists are associated with toning and rejuvenating the abdominal and pelvic regions. When these regions are engaged, blood flow naturally increases and toxins are released – a natural internal massage. Relaxing and strengthening these areas releases lower back tension and frees limitation in the neck and shoulders.
Workshop 3: Facing and Embracing Fears
Flying is like a great fire of courage – once that flame is ignited it never goes out. Arm Balances and Inversions can be some of yoga’s most challenging yet fun poses to practice. Learn to safely defy gravity, starting with a single breath. In this workshop you will strengthen your core to better support your arm balances. We will build upper body strength which will help support and build healthier wrists, elbows and shoulders. We will guide you to engage the legs, so they don’t take refuge in Savasana. Begin cultivating awareness of your body in an upside down position and moving through space, while surfing from one pose to another. Yoga should be satisfying and fun, not a chore or full of fear. This workshop will launch you there.
