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 19th August 1:45pm- 3:45pm,
Deepen Your Practice - Backbending in Safe Alignment, Foundations with AMY GIULIANO
Backbends are known to be invigorating and exhilarating, but are often approached with a sense of trepidation. In this workshop, we'll look at the anatomy of a well-functioning spine and supporting structures, and give you some essential tools to stabilize your vertebrae while bending backwards. 'How do I engage my core?' and 'What do I do with my neck?' and 'How do I stop my back from hurting?' are commonly asked questions that will be addressed in detail. Love and nurture your spine through this practical experience.
Saturday 9th September 1:45pm- 3:45pm
Deepen Your Practice - Backbending Variations & Depth, Advanced with AMY GIULIANO
Advanced backbends require not only flexibility in the spine, but also plenty of range in the shoulder and hip joints - this is where most people hit road bumps that halt their progress. Learn the safe ways to open these structures, while strengthening the supporting muscles of the spine and core. Move towards deeper backbends that invigorate your body and mind, but with respect for your own individual body and its needs. Leave your ego at the door and discover the tools to enjoy a healthy backbending practice.
Come along if you want to:

- Feel safe to build up your practice into more advanced postures
- Enhance your awareness of energy moving through the asanas
- Feel grounded and connected to a practice that is relevant to YOUR individual body needs
We encourage you to attend the Foundations followed by the Advanced Workshop, but we do offer both the classes seperately. Each workshop goes for 2hours and the foundations will thread to what is taught in the advanced workshop.
