Advancing Your Asana:
In this fun and lively workshop we’ll discuss exactly what “advanced” asana is from a few different perspectives. See how various approaches change the way we perform asana and explore the things that make an intermediate asana grow and flourish.
We will integrate some ideas from other movement disciplines and study how the mental aspect of a pose can take the student to a deeper level of awareness.
Taking some simple asanas, we’ll look at different ways and find new ways to do them that will inform and educate some more challenging ones.
Explore your relationship to yourself, your body and psychology and come away with a more profound sense of yoga asana and how it can help liberate your mind and body from doing to being.
Students should have a minimum 1 year experience and can expect inversions, backbends and arm balances, lots of modifications will be offered.
