A series of 3 workshops starting this weekend

 

 

STANDING STRONG – SUN 22ND SEPTEMBER 1.30 – 4pm

PRESS DOWN, LIFT UP – SAT 12TH OCTOBER 1.30 – 4pm

BACK BENDS – SUN 20TH OCTOBER 1.30 – 4pm

In this series of workshops 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 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.

STANDING STRONG

In part one of the series, the focus will be the feet and legs. The standing sequence comes at the beginning of the ashtanga sequence and allows us to get to grips with our feet and strengthen our legs. Proper use of our legs and feet impacts the way we hold ourselves, improves posture, facilitates connection to the bandhas and begins the hip opening process.

This workshop will also be an in depth exploration of the standing sequence, which when approached and done correctly will inform and transform your whole practice. read more…
