Deepen Your Practice is a series of workshops to advance your knowledge in all things yoga. Here at InYoga we are committed to providing our community with opportunities to LIVE, KNOW, LOVE, A LIFE IN YOGA. If you are on an Auto or Annual Membership all our Deepen Your Practice Series are included in the cost of membership.
These workshop series are broken into two parts. Firstly Foundations- where your roots can get a little deeper behind the how, what and why of the practice. You'll revisit the 'how to' from an anatomical perspective, know how to modify and where to use your breath to increase body awareness. This will then thread through to the Advanced Workshop where you will play in more advanced variations of poses and deepen your understanding of when, why and how you would choose to advance or modify your practice.
Saturday 14th October 1:45pm- 3:45pm
Deepen Your Practice - Stable Joints & Core Foundations with NICOLE WALSH
When practicing yoga, it's important to keep the body's 'moving parts' healthy, that is, joints of the body need to have the right amount of mobility and stability. When our body is out of balance, our joints bear the brunt of external forces, such as gravity. Learn how to effective stabilize the main load-bearing joints in your yoga practice, so that you can enjoy a healthy body through all kinds of movement. This workshop has an anatomical focus, with practical elements that you can bring into your vinyasa practice to avoid injury and pain. The basics you discover here will set you up to advance your practice in all asanas, particularly arm and leg balances.
Saturday 18th November 1:45pm- 3:45pm :
Deepen Your Practice - Leg and Arm Balances Advanced with NICOLE WALSH
Discover how to safely defy gravity with this insightful approach to balancing on both your hands and feet. Integrating the essential building blocks learnt in the previous workshop (joint stabilization and activation of bandhas), with intelligent sequencing, this workshop will empower and inspire you to move effortlessly in the field of gravity. We'll help you to experience more lightness in your yoga practice as you access your core, and build strength and stability in the supporting structures of the body. Learn how to do this with a sense of curiosity, play and fun!
