Vinyasa Krama – time to slow down and think quicker

Sat 18th Nov 2017

Modern yoga and its fascination with vinyasa has eroded the practice of gradually moving into a special place! Sequencing and slow progression have in today's yoga become a largely forgotten aspect of modern yogasana practice. People seem to want to get there, to the next stage hyper quick, then get on to the next thing! Too many want to progress too quickly. To misquote the bhagavad gita "yoga is skilfulness in action". In this workshop we are going to apply this concept in a vinyasa class environment. Where softness and hardness meet, where slow and flow combine and shadow yoga becomes a progression that is not hurried but appreciated and this practice of self study becomes much more compassionate.

Breathing for Living

Sat 02nd Dec 2017

Breathing is the most important thing a human does in life. It surpasses anything else an individual does in life and strangely it is never taught or practised. Modern Yogasana classes employ a breathing technique called ujaayi breath. It is distinct sound caused by narrowing the throat and practising an audible inhale and exhale. This workshop will examine the use of breath in vinyasa asana class. It will also look at several other breathing techniques commonly included in Yogasana practice.
