5.30-8pm Friday, January 12: Liquid Flow Yoga – Freestyle Vinyasa
A vibrant vinyasa practice that embraces the structure and discipline of Ashtanga and Iyengar Yoga, infused with immense creativity and a dance-like flow. An unscripted adventure that combines detailed physical and energetic alignment with creatively artful transitions in an intelligent vinyasa krama that will challenge, invigorate and harmonise.
9.30am-12pm Saturday, January 13: Freedom On The Edge - Inversions + Arm Balances
Inversions and Arm Balances are a pure expression of creative energy flowing through the body. Use creative core work and intelligent sequencing to harness the pranic body, activating the bandhas to seamlessly integrate inversions, arm balances and flying transitions. Build from wall and partner-assisted balances, to free standing in the centre of the room.
1.30-4.30pm Saturday, January 13: The Art of Assisting
Skilful hands-on-assists have the power to transport your students to a new level of awareness, effectively complimenting verbal cues. Learn to assist with precision, vision and sensitivity from two of the best in the business. Simon – who spent years assisting for Shiva Rea, and Noelle – who has assisted extensively with Maty Ezraty, founder of YogaWorks.
9.30am-12pm Sunday, January 14: Simple to Advanced Backbends
Backbends balance grounding down with fluidity and receptivity. Learn the principles of alignment inherent in simple backbends such as cobra, locust and updog, while integrating the physical and energetic keys that will lead you to complex postures such as Rajakapotasana (King Pigeon), Naturajasana (Cosmic Dancer), Vrichikasana (Scorpion) and drop-backs, in a safe and blissful way.
1.30-4.30pm Sunday, January 14: Super Sequencing
Learn to design and deliver safe, creative and intelligent vinyasa sequences that will take your students to the next level. We'll discuss the principles of vinyasa krama - placing asana in sequential order, and explore how to utilise component parts to prepare the body for complex poses. We'll look at how to sequence around a theme, work towards peak poses, and dive into Shiva Rea's wave/multi-dimensional sequencing. Develop your own advanced flows that can be adapted for students of all levels, and classes of all types and lengths.
