3 Workshops for 800 000 IDR – You can do as many workshops as you want. Even the Workshops with the same theme will never be exactly the same twice!
11am to 1pm
3 different Workshop Themes
Intelligent Flow and Breath 15th, 19th, 23rd, 27th
A 2 hour Class where we focus on Breath and Intelligent Flow.
. We start this workshop with around 30 minutes of kriyas, pranayama and meditation before we start to flow in other physical ways. The breathing exercises calmly energise and we experience space in the abdomen. With good breath awareness/ mechanics staying longer in more challenging or new positions becomes easier and we can tune into details. We use this space in a playful physical flow.
Expect a great yoga workout/ workin!”
This sets you in great stead for the other workshops, though also stands alone.
Handstand Training 16th, 20th, 24th, 28th
With handstands it can be obvious that it is all about the journey. What you are doing right now is fundamental to your progression.
This workshop is broken down into 3 parts
Firstly we will focus on conditioning- How can we create the strength and flexibility/ mobility required for various handstands? Secondly we will explore entry/ exit strategies and effective techniques when upside down.
Finally we will look at transitions and movement when inverted.
All three focuses are interlinked. Different flexibilities and strengths will change your press journey.
Over the course of this workshop you will be given guidance and shown the steps to move towards mastery of arm balances. If you are completely new to arm balances, the impossible will start to be possible!
This will be an opportunity to train and learn new techniques in a safe environment. The journey from your feet to your hands can have it’s scary moments but in this workshop you will be well looked after each step of the way. Handstand, one arm peacock, one armed side crow, shall be explored.
Suitable for complete beginners and experienced.
Backbends Immersive 17th, 21st, 25th, 29th
Backbends sit at the heart of asana training and practice. If you can enjoy backbends then your regular yoga practise is much more joyful and motivating! From Standing Bow/ Dancer, Cobra, Chest Stands, Wheel, Locust, Floor Bow or Camel, a regular yoga practise incorporating well aligned backbends is a wonderful foundation for health.
With an emphasis on opening up your shoulders, hip flexors and spine, you will receive tools and homework to develop backbends in your practice.
Whether you want to explore wheel, know how to get closer to locust, invert you backbend or simply incorporate techniques to help shoulder/ back issues, this hands-on workshop provides a space to get playful and try things you might think you can’t or don’t know how to do.
With many opportunities to ask questions and get individual feedback you will be given alignment adjustments, assistance and the chance to explore and try out backbends in a safe and fun environment
