Module 1: Hip Hip Hooray! - Lower Back and Hip joint
August 22nd 18:45-21:15
The hips are the most important joints in traditional yoga asana practice. Flexibility and restrictions in this area affect our overall posture and practice. This workshop addresses structural possibilities and explores postural options for opening and supporting the pelvis – leg connection and the associated lower back region. Learn what might be holding you back and find a closer connection to the use of your muscles of the legs, pelvic floor and core.
Module 2: Super Yogi - Yoga, the nervous system and hormone function
August 23rd 18:45-21:15
Yoga practice is much more than fitness. Providing unique benefits, asana practice can have profound influences on the development of the nervous system and the body. Modern research now validates the effectiveness of yoga and asana practice. Find out how you can increase your brain and health potential, tune your hormonal system and live less stressed.
Module 3: Bigger is Better vs Less is More
- Breathing, Pranayama and integrated breath in postures
