BUILDING SKILL AND UNDERSTANDING IN OUR APPROACH TO ASANA – 4 X 2.5HR CPD WORKSHOPS
MULTIPLE DATES IN FEB/MARCH 2021 (SEE BELOW) – 1 WORKSHOP £35 ( € 39) & 4 WORKSHOPS £120 (€ 138)
When we first dip our toes in to the world of yoga asanas, we often see asanas as absolute shapes, that are there to be replicated and ultimately conquered. We see objective success in other areas of our life and an asana class is just another one of those areas to objectively succeed in. Over time, as our practice matures and we move beyond imitation, we can begin to build skill in our asana practice, and start questions like; what is the intention of the pose? What is being opened and what strengthens? Is this actually beneficial for my body? Am I being distracted by a desire to achieve a dramatic shape?
From both the perspective of teachers and students, in this series of workshops, we will explore;
– The intention behind pose families and common habits that be potentially injurious
– How to build skill and understanding in the way we use of body
– How to deepen our physical practice in a controlled safe and sustainable way
– How to apply alignment principles to unique bodies
– How to balance flexibility and strength, whilst dropping desire for ‘dramatic’ shapes!
Teachers and enthusiastic students welcome. For completion of the whole weekend, a 10 hr Yoga Alliance International credit is available and certification, or 2.5hr certification per workshop.
