Want to refine your understanding of the “vinyasa” we move through between poses in Vinyasa yoga? Do you ask yourself: What should I focus on in plank? How low should I go in Chaturanga? How does everyone else seem to move so gracefully into Upward-Facing Dog?
Every Vinyasa yoga student encounters confusion, discomfort, and/or frustration with vinyasas at some point in their practice. In this workshop, we’ll examine each pose in the vinyasa sequence to solidify your individual understanding of the important anatomical cues to help ensure you are able to continue practicing without injury for many years to come. This means we will also explore intelligent modifications so you can tailor your vinyasas to your personal needs — which shift day to day, practice to practice — so as to accommodate any existing instabilities or previous injuries, and alleviate fear of exacerbating or reinjuring those problems areas.
Along with relaxed instruction and demonstrations of each pose, you will get to experiment with modifications, ask questions and receive personalized feedback before putting it all together in a complete practice. At the end of the afternoon, you’ll leave feeling newly confident in moving through vinyasas with strength and integrity.
The workshop price includes a packet of session notes with write-ups of the poses, cues, and modifications which students can use for note-taking during the workshop and take home for reference.
