Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.

Workshops offer a safe and supportive environment to explore new concepts and further develop your practice.

Each workshop has a specific focus; possibly a group of related postures or a core concept that allows us to understand our own practice better, both on and off the mat.

Learning to love backbends

An explorative workshop using functional movement techniques

Learning to love backbends: An explorative workshop using functional movement techniques

Backbends often fall into the group of postures that we either love or, well don’t love quite so much…

During this workshop we will apply functional movement techniques directly to our yoga practice. By approaching backbends with an understanding of our biomechanics, we create structure and then space, leading to a sense of comfort and freedom.

Backbends offer many benefits, opening the front of the body (especially useful for those spending hours at a desk), strengthening your back and an increase in energy - to mention just a few.

Over time, life evolves, things shift and so to does our practice. Irrespective of where your back bend practice is currently at, by applying the techniques offered with understanding as well as a healthy respect for yourself we can learn to enjoy these postures and reap their many benefits.

WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP AIMED AT?

All levels of practioners are welcome; especially if you need a little more backbend love in your practice!

Moving into Form

An Ashtanga Technique Workshop

Moving into Form: An Ashtanga Technique Workshop

During this 2 hour workshop Claire takes you on a journey of movement, shape and form as we explore some of the Ashtanga Primary Series seated postures.

Using the structure of Ashtanga, combined with intelligent movement as well as kinesiology we explore moving into asana (poses) with awareness. The Ashtanga sequence is progressive in its design, where patterns are repeated taking us progressively deeper into our bodies and experience. Through understanding the basic principles of structure, form and movement we can add depth to the fundamental postures as well as look at more intricate poses with greater simplicity.

Who is this workshop aimed at?

All levels of practioners are welcome. Beginners are very welcome, and likewise more experienced practioners will gain much.
