Enrich your Yoga practice as we dive deep into the finer details of a truly graceful and introspective sadhana.
In this workshop we'll explore the incredible power of Tristhana: unlocking the potential of breath, yogic posture & meditative gaze with exercises specifically designed to enable the practitioner to experience and access all three aspects with clarity and precision.
Additionally, this workshop aims to deepen one's relationship with Bandha (energetic locks) and Vinyasa (movement & breath). All concepts will be intricately knitted together with references from renowned yogic texts making for a vivid expression of the sweetness that is the Ashtanga method.

The great escape — finding freedom in opening the front-body. This workshop aims to untangle the intricacies that lie within backbending. Fear not! This workshop is designed for all levels of practitioners.
By the end of this workshop you will have a clear grasp on not just the key physical components that make a healthy backbend but also understanding Prana and energetics, the deep emotional aspects, the long-term physical benefits and the secret hidden tools we have within the Primary Series to prepare the body for such an incredibly beneficial part of the yoga practice.
