2-Hour Workshops on 3 Sundays:
20.2, 6.3, 27.3.2022 13:00 - 15:00
These workshops will empower you to take ownership of your practice,
whether at home or in class, and modify poses according to your
individual needs. We will focus on different body parts,
both optimizing alignment for joint health as well as modifying to work
with stiffness or injury, and modifying for your particular needs.
So often we are presented with images of the “ideal” body in ads and magazines. Yoga marketing is no exception. The problem with this is that no two bodies are alike, and one pose does not fit all. Sometimes striving for an unrealistic ideal can cause injury and set us back in our practice. In this workshop we will explore some general principles of how to work with our anatomy to safely create space in our joints and length in our muscles, without causing ourselves injury.
You will leave class with a better understanding of how to modify poses based on your individual needs. The workshop will take place in three parts, which can be taken as a trilogy or a la carte, each addressing a different body region.
