A little more about what to expect.
Plant yourself firmly down into your mat. Establish secure, firm and resolute roots. Feel your connection with the earth. Stability comes from patience, perseverance, and practice. Stability starts in grounding poses, however with practice we can bring stability into even the most challenging poses. This workshop shall create the framework for the weekend of practice.
Electrify your yoga practice. Bring power, strength & vitality to your mat. Power to lift, strength to float, vitality to sustain your asana practice. Gravity can be overcome. Practice can create lightness in the body.
Close your eyes. Still the distractions. Feel your body move from the inside. Enjoy a quiet practice.
Create space. Expand your range of movement and develop a supple, open body. Flexibility is multifaceted, it comes from stretching the muscles, but also releasing fascia around joints, balancing the nervous system and creating healthy thought patterns. Lets explore stretching from more than one angle, and see if we can deepen our yogic experience together.
Ease into an ocean of quietude. Allow your being to be carried on the waves of your breath. Explore pranayama, the science of yogic breathing.
