Full Description

PROGRAM
Friday 3 June 17.00 - 18.30

Introduction, Led Primary Series and Q&A (2.5 hours)

Led Primary series is traditionally counted (in Sanskrit) in a rhythmic fashion to invoke a sense of flow and concentration as we breathe and move in a unified manner. This will be a full Led Primary Series class from start to finish in celebration and honor of the immeasurable lineage of Ashtanga yoga. Time will also be taken afterward for discussion and Q&A.

Saturday 4 June 10.00 - 12.30

Vinyasa Integration (2.5 Hours)

In this workshop special attention will be focused on moving with conscious awareness, in union with conscious breath, otherwise known as vinyāsa. Trouble shooting areas of instability that may be present, you will delve more thoroughly into how to build strength, with care and attention, building upon internal alignment. Focused points of attention will include practical application of Tristhānam (posture, breath, gaze) into each movement, promoting a calm center and accessing sense withdrawal, known as pratyāhāra. Learn to activate and open the energy channels of the body without strain. Discover balance, support and integrity in strength-based postures such as techniques for jumping back and jumping through as well as structural breakdown of challenging poses and transitions.

Saturday 4 June 14.00 - 16.00

Awakening The Core: Bandhas, Breath and More (2 hours)

In this workshop become more intimately rooted to the internal network of the bandhas while tuning to the central axis of the body. Properly understanding how to engage the bandhas not only bring lightness to the body but also stability and clarity to the mind. Learn to become more closely connected to this often elusive and mysterious part of the practice of Ashtanga yoga, appropriate for all levels.

Sunday 5 June 10.30 - 13.00

Backbending with Ease: Liberate the Spine (2.5 Hours)

The paradox of backbending is that we must be firm and soft at the same time, uniting the energy of strength and surrender. Learn the basic components of backbending with integrity to the natural flow of the body. In addition, learn to understand the concept of active release. When actively releasing, we experience the use of grounding mechanisms to establish the downward flow of energy while fully utilizing the breath to then be able to expand and deepen. In this workshop learn the foundational techniques that allow the body to find its depth and strength while at the same time letting go. For all levels.

Sunday 5 June 14.00 - 16.30

Arm Balance with Power and Grace (2.5 Hours)

Experience the exhilaration of arm balances in a playful and explorative way, while learning the basic elements and foundational techniques to successfully construct an arm balance practice. Proper alignment, strength building as well as energizing the subtle body will be addressed in this inspiring and informative workshop for all levels.
