Type of Event
Thursday February 16, 18.30-20.30
Pure Bliss with Hips
Hip openers can be some of the most blissful poses in the yoga practice or they can be quite the opposite. There are specific techniques that can provide you with greater range of motion, and deeper energetic releases within the practice, and in this workshop you will gain the access to them. You will have the skills to dive deeper into your body and unlock what’s tight to bring long lasting relief to your hips as well as your knees and low back! Get ready for a fun, powerful and deep experience in your body that will change your practice forever.
Friday February 17, 11.00-13.30
Discover the Joy of Backbending
The back bending practice can be some of the trickiest poses in Yoga, and can seem like either something you just can or can not do. While some people naturally have more flexibility in an arched position others have to take a more studied approach. In this workshop we will go over techniques that will bring joy and ease to your back bending practice. Those that are less flexible will focus on techniques to unlock tension. Those that have an established back bending practice will be able to take themselves to a whole new level using precision in their approach!
Suitable for practitioners of all levels

Paving The Runways: AcroYoga Foundations
AcroYoga offers the opportunity to translate the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of our yoga practice into partnership and group dynamic. It sets the stage for one of the most joyful and profound journeys, filled with discovery. AcroYoga employs safe, simple steps so we can approach what might otherwise seem impossible. Connection, trust and playfulness come to the forefront of the experience as you learn proper physical technique—giving you the tools to fly and (give flight to others!) You can expect to laugh, meet new people and surprise yourself with what you can do. All levels welcome; no experience with AcroYoga required.
