Full Description

Vikasa is a Sanskrit term which means 'Evolution', thus the Vikasa Yoga style is about evolving ones Yoga practice, exploring ones limitations and ways to rise above them. The first 30% of the workshop will be alloted to fierce 'Yang' body strength & conditioning exercises, including Hindu Calisthenics and Vikasa Yoga long holds to build muscular endurance and postural stability. The last 70% of the workshop will be devoted to ''Yin' exercises for lenghtenting, stretching, deep-muscular-tissue release and relaxation. The Yang principle is one of toughness, grit, and power, it is the male energy of the universe. The Yin principle of one of yielding energy, giving in to oneself, relaxing, and letting go to what is, it is the feminine energy of self-comfort and grace. During Yin we will explore a variety of deep Yogic stretches for unlocking tightness out of the large joints of the body. Furthermore, as we progress from Yang to Yin I will further explain how to generate either Yin or Yang energy forces within the body, and how to harness their unique powers separately and in union with one another. My hope is when you leave the workshop you feel energetically balanced, stretched out, relaxed, tranquil, and with new knowledge of how to mix and balance Yin and Yang energies for harmonies modern day living.
