Are you interested in increasing your mental and physical strength for your practice? Do you want to learn to use props in fun and creative ways to support your transitions?
In these workshops (which are intended to supplement an Ashtanga practice but are also applicable to many other styles of yoga), you’ll learn a variety of skills and exercises that will help you build strength and practice key poses and transitions more efficiently.
You’ll first work with alignment and strength-building in foundational poses such as plank and chaturanga and then move on to transitions (lift-ups and jump backs). You’ll then work on developing greater core and whole-body integration as you prepare for, practice, and hold inversions such as headstand and shoulderstand. At the end of the course, you’ll practice several arm balances (and variations of them) from the first and second series, like bhujapidasana (arm pressure pose), bakasana (crow pose), and mayurasana (peacock pose).
Get ready to use lots of props and play with dynamic movement techniques that you can integrate into your practice right away!
