This intuitive and soulful master class features both traditional and avant-garde therapeutic variations to asanas and is designed to teach practitioners to adapt the practice to their individual bodies with natural artistic fluidity, breath-oriented movements, inner and outer balance, and a deep sense of grace and gratitude for the body.
The Secret Art Of Adjusting Yoga Poses
Based on his upcoming book, The Secret Art of Adjusting Yoga Poses, this Yoga asana workshop with Dr. Eden Goldman breaks down some of the most popular poses in Hatha Yoga and presents insights into how teachers can deliver more effective and beneficial asana assists for a variety of skill levels and body types to enhance one’s experience in Yoga. The workshop begins with a light warm-up practice and transitions into an open forum, posture lab, and asana adjustment clinic where we discuss ways of developing more awareness as practitioners and how we can release tension and stress patterns in the body using materials prepared from Dr. Eden’s book.
