Description of Workshops
Alignment Essentials I - 6/July
This workshop gives you the foundation of understanding the importance of the workings of the feet and the legs in the practice of standing poses. This understanding and practice of standing poses is carried through to all of the other categories of poses. Standing poses develop strength, stability and stamina, which is essential when approaching the intermediate and advanced practices.
Yoga & Ayurveda - 20/July
Yoga and Ayurveda are sister sciences, one completing the other. Ayurvedic knowledge will be learnt that will give you the capacity to find and maintain balance in your physical and mental states. The ayurvedic lifestyle paves the way to fully experience the subtle and holistic benefits that yoga has to offer. Understand how to bridge the wisdom of these two sister sciences.
Forward Extensions & Twists - 3/August
Understand the essential techniques of seated and standing forward bends that will bring extension, vitality and strength, to the spine and the back of the body. The openness that is gained in the backs of the legs through the aligned and mindful practice of forward bends, becomes a boon for back pain. The therapeutic benefits work deeper than the spine; the nerves and internal organs become relaxed and are energised. The same understanding of extension and expansion is carried into the practice of twists. Twists create flexibility in the spine and help in the toning and rejuvenation of internal organs. Twists compliment and balance the practice of forward extensions.
Alignment Essentials II - 17/August
Further enhance your understanding and practice of the dynamics of the more challenging standing poses. Learn alignment principles and techniques that will allow you to practice demanding standing poses with a greater sense of ease.
Pranayama & Restoratives - 31/August
Learn the art of proper relaxation through a sequence of restorative yoga to restore balance back into your health. Understand how to effectively integrate restorative yoga and pranayama into your yoga practice. Experience the deep healing effect that these practices have on releasing stress and relaxing the nervous system.
Inversion Immersion - 14/September

Cultivate your calm; to balance this active asana practice we learn shoulder-stand (salamba sarvangasana I) and variations, for it's therapeutic and sustainable practice.
Sun Salutatios & Ashtanga Yoga Fundamentals - 24/September
