Intricacies of Asana Workshop

When starting yoga, you might feel overwhelmed as the teacher starts calling out poses, and sometimes not even in english, as you focus just trying to keep up but may not feel like you’re doing the pose as it is intended. Sometimes some of the poses that may seem “beginner” or like they should be easy are anything but! Even in the most “simple” of poses, the body is doing so many different things to bring it self into a safe shape and helpful alignment.

This workshop will focus on a really slow, detailed, and in-depth break down of sequences like Surya Namaskar A (Sun Salutation A) and Surya Namaskar B (Sun Salutation B). These “flows” incorporate poses like tadasana (mountain pose), uttanasana (standing forward fold), ardha uttanasana (half forward fold), plank and chaturanga dandasana (low plank), urdhva mukha svanasana (upward facing dog), and down dog as well as adding in virabhadrasana 1 (warrior 1) when we cover Sun Salutation B. We will break down each posture and talk about what each part of the body is doing and why. We will refine chaturanga dandasana and practice various variations and modifications to find what suits our body and our practice best as well as cover how we transition safely from pose to pose with mindfulness. We will also focus on the fine details of virabhadrasana 2 (warrior 2) so we can approach this pose with more power, strength, and grace.

After this workshop, you will leave with way more confidence to step onto your mat knowing you are in control of your movements with mindfulness and precision to maintain a safe and healthy practice.

All levels welcome! Great for beginners, those who are new to yoga, and those wanting to refine their practice.
