In this workshop we will explore the importance of foundation to create length, space, and ease of movement in every posture.
Just as a tree with strong roots grows healthy and tall, by cultivating our roots our asana practice will flourish.
Postures revolve around pairs of opposites (grounding/ lengthening, strength/softness, drawing back/reaching forward). Striking the perfect balance between the two, by understanding our roots and by staying connected to our centre, allows us to find freedom and grace in every posture.
We will look at how to establish and train our foundation, primarily through the fundamental postures of the sun salutations and standing sequence. We will see that these techniques are the key to success in more challenging postures including inversions, arm balances, jump throughs and backbends, and will lead to steadiness and ease within the entire primary series.
The workshop takes place on Saturday, 25th November 2017, 14:00- 16:30
