11-12 oktober 2014
Chris K. Courtney en Maya Devi Georg, gepassioneerde yogaleraars met een indrukwekkende achtergrond, komen naar FlowingYOGA. Je kan deelnemen aan 3 boeiende workshops vinyasa yoga.
Zaterdag 11 oktober, 10u tot 12u – Introduction to vinyasa yoga (Chris)
Are you new to vinyasa yoga and want to learn more? Have you been afraid to try a powerful vinyasa class? Or have you been practicing vinyasa but want to make sure you are doing the poses correctly? Then this is the workshop for YOU!
Come learn the basic fundamentals of a power vinyasa flow sequence. This workshop will show you the physical and energetic alignment principles of the most common asanas (postures). It will also show you the proper pranayama breathing techniques for power vinyasa and the spiritual philosophy behind the transformative practice will also be covered.
The workshop includes hands-on adjustments/assists and the opportunity to ask questions throughout the 2 hour workshop. (Asana and discussion)
This workshop is suited for beginners and experienced yogi(ni)’s.
Zaterdag 11 oktober, 14u tot 16u – Backbends and The Subtle Body (Maya)
In this world, the most immediate manifestation of our karmas is our body; the most immediate manifestation of the divine is love. We can purify our karmas by purifying our bodies, and become divine by expressing love. Backbends are essential to this concept. They open the heart, releasing the tension of things left unsaid in the neck and shoulders, and opening the doors of grief and rage that reside in the ribcage. This workshop, while primarily an asana class, will incorporate pranayama and meditation to better access the subtle anatomy. This allows practitioners to access the flow of energy, purifying both body and heart, and begin the transformation to a perfect manifestation of the divine. (Asana)
This workshop is suited for all levels + students, no absolute beginners.
Zondag 12 oktober, 10u tot 12u – Fear of Flying: Arm Balances For Everyone (Chris)
Do you run for the door when your yoga teacher calls out an arm balance? Do you suddenly “remember” that you need to call the babysitter when you hear the words bakasana, handstand, or pincha mayurasana (much less just mayurasana)? Then this workshop is for you!
Join Chris for a playful and fun filled workshop where we’ll explore how to build arm balances from the ground up. Reviewing the fundamental building blocks and “gateway” asanas to build the technique and strength for more advanced arm balances, we’ll push our edges outward breaking through barriers of self-belief and ability.
Arm balances are more than just exotic party tricks, they teach balance, coordination, and engaging the bandhas so we can move toward a feeling of laghima – the siddhi of becoming almost weightless.
Students of all levels are welcome and encouraged to sign up and attend. Active participation in this workshop is not recommended for students with shoulder, arm or wrist injuries however they can benefit from listening to the discussions and observing the techniques being practiced. (Asana)
Counts as continuing education credit for registered yoga teachers recognized by the Yoga Alliance.
