Firm, long and strong: Exploring the Yin and

Yang of Anatomy – Half day yoga workshop

Saturday 3 November 2018, 13:30 to 17:30 – Come and join us this Autumn!

B.K.S. Iyengar famously stated that “Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.” Join us for our November half day workshop, and see your Asana practice in a whole new light!

Interested in yoga anatomy? Want to understand how your body moves as you practice? Do you want to get to grips with what those yoga-teacher cues really mean? Or do you simply want to experience a different style of yoga to your usual practice? Whatever your interest, we have just the thing!

We are excited to welcome guest tutor Laura Mcdermott Brown to lead the Asana practice on this half-day workshop, which promises to give you new insight into the anatomy of yoga. Laura will teach a strong but accessible Iyengar-style practice, helping you to explore your anatomy and form, and the way in which your body moves.

With precise alignment, understandable cues, and experiential learning, Laura will take you deeper into your practice, perhaps challenging some of your previous thoughts about what your body can and can’t do, and equip you with new tools to try at home.

We know how important balance in all things is, so after this yang style practice, Michaela will guide you through a short Yin yoga practice to counter-pose the body, followed by Yoga Nidra for deep relaxation and transformation, and a meditation to close the day.

Yin yoga has the same goals and objectives as any other school of yoga; however, it directs the stimulation normally created in the asana portion of the practice deeper than the superficial or muscular tissues (which we are calling the yang tissues). Yin Yoga targets and applies moderate stress to the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. The intention of Yin Yoga is to stress the joints (within safe limits) in order to prevent degeneration.

Join us for the afternoon, and leave feeling fine and firm, longer and stronger!
