Yoga Workshops

Why do a Yoga Workshop?

Perhaps you attend yoga classes regularly and you’ve even established a home practice. If you’d like to deepen and your further your practice and learn more about a specific aspect of the practice yoga workshops can offer these experiences beyond those usually included in a typical 60-90-minute class.

Yoga Workshop

A workshop normally lasts for 2-3 hours or takes place over a long weekend. Workshops focus on a specific aspect of yoga, asanas, breathing practice, meditation or a particular limb (guidelines) of yoga. The possibilities are completely different but they all have one thing in common, participating in the practice of yoga.

Time restraints

Time restraints. In today’s world, we’re under a lot of time pressure and we can sometimes rush to and from a yoga class and don’t benefit as much as we could be. A workshop offers more time to experiment with posturesmore detailed instruction will happen as time allows this.

Deepen your practice. 

The beauty of a workshop is that there is more time to absorb what your body is telling you, ask questions, analyze practices, postures, breathing techniques and deepen your awareness and knowledge. Asana is a beautiful way to develop self-knowledge, but it’s the tip of the yoga iceberg. Hidden depths are waiting to be discovered. Workshops can be very rewarding.

Shift your awareness

Shift your awareness.  The intensive focus of a workshop may answer questions you didn’t even know you had. Focusing on yoga for a couple of hours or throughout a weekend also shifts your awareness.

Find your tribe

Find your tribe. You’ll connect with a group interested in the same themes, and have more opportunities to interact while you share experiences on the mat and off. Let your yoga mat take you places….for instance, pick a teacher, studio or venue you’ve been wanting to visit, who knows where the journey will take you.

Renew your commitment

Renew your commitment. Trying something new can help you appreciate your practice all over again. Especially good times to shake things up are the change in seasons,  holidays, birthdays or whenever you need renewed energy and a fiercer focus on your practice!

Yin Yoga Workshop to reverse residual stagnation before Spring.

Although the long dark days of winter have their upsides such as snuggling up by an open fire and eating wholesome winter food. Our annual festival of hibernation and quiet reflection can result in physical stagnation, a foggy mind, and a sluggish immune system.

With a Yin practice we find the stillness

In Yin Yoga we stay in poses for long periods of time. Water is the primary element of winter and the focus is on the water element. We can stimulate the flow of prana (energy) and restore an overall sense of vitality in the body. The stimulation of prana can also take you out of the stagnation in life and help you move through your intentions and move forward, setting up your mind, body, and life for success once spring arrives.

In this workshop, we will target the kidneys and urinary bladder meridians which are the primary organs that move water through the body. We will be paying particular attention to the Back and Hips to release tightness, increase flexibility and ease pain. The specific postures in Yin Yoga stimulate meridian lines that run down the spine as well as down the back of the legs and up the inner thighs and will boost our energy levels, sharpen our minds and promotes emotional equilibrium.

This workshop will prepare you so that you are ready to invite in the new that spring offers!!

Get Your Spring Groove On With A Yoga Workshop

Winter, a season of hibernation and burrowing in often manifests itself as lethargy. We carry onto old weight to protect us from the cold and we end up feeling sluggish or “stuck”. Spring is the perfect time for us to rise out of winter’s lull with fresh energy, a yoga workshop can be the perfect catalyst to help us to let go of the old to make space for the new.

During the first days of Spring it is the disconnect between our excited mind that is full of expectations and our exhausted, congested body that is slow to come out of hibernation, this can also leave us feeling unmotivated, imbalanced and depressed.

Sthira and Sukha – balance of effort and ease, grit and grace. This is a very important concept from the Yoga Sutras that (Yoga guidelines) of the practice of Yoga. It is a metaphor for our lives and a way of balanced existence. Finding this balance becomes especially important at the start of Spring.

Set Yourself up for a Successful Spring

While you might be in the habit of choosing yin and restorative yoga classes during wintertime a more flowing and dynamic practice is called for to help us to rejuvenate and shed our winter layers. In this workshop we will literally be wiping the slate clean. This will help us with this transition and we can start anew. Like a snake that sheds its skin we will celebrate spring by shedding our winter layer and opening up to the energy of the season.
