Mythical Vinyasa Yoga Flow – Ganesh: Root Down to Rise Up

Venue: Move Your Frame, Shoreditch (please book directly through their website)

September 17th is Ganesh Chaturthi, the festival celebrated in honour of the elephant-headed god Ganesha. The beauty of myth is it gives a vehicle by which to navigate human experience, to explain the world through a particular perspective.

Ganesh is considered the bearer of auspicious beginnings, the remover of obstacles – however he doesn't just clear the path, he teaches that when challenge arises it is an opportunity to grow, to learn and understand that we have the power to stand up transcend and expand.

The asana focus will be work with a creative vinyasa sequence to gather a strong sense of grounding Ganesh is associated with muladhara, the first or root chakra, which guards the gate of the body and is symbolized by a square. A way to embody Ganesha’s great strength and fearlessness is through asana that emphasizes the root chakra. When we wake up and restore our root chakra we enable a strong sense of self.

Expect a steady and challenging flow where we move through asana (postures) with a strong sense of grounding, drawing strength from the earth to our midline to burn away perceived obstacles, finding softness and freedom at the heart.

The workshop will close with a guided meditation and deep relaxation (savasana).

Some vinyasa yoga experience recommended.

Exploring Vinyasa Krama

Exploring Vinyasa Krama

Vinyasa Flow Workshop: The art and spirit of the practice.

The art of vinyasa yoga is rooted in the teaching methodology of T Krishnamacharya.

Krishnamacharya, considered the father of mondern yoga, teacher to BKS Iyengar and Pattabhi Jois, developed an order or methodology by which to approach learning yoga. This methodology was called Siksana Krama.

'Siksana' - The act of the learning; acquiring knowledge

'Krama' - The way in which things are ordered, sequenced; method; procedure

I was fortunate enough to study this method in detail at the Krishnamacharya Yoga Mandiram in Chennai. In this workshop we will learn some of the principles behind his method and explore careful sequencing towards specific asanas to find your deepest space and potential.

We will work with particular focus on a breath centered and easeful flow, working to open the body to a greater capacity as move 'kramically' towards a range of both moderate and more complex asanas, which will both challenge and inspire.  The workshop will include led meditation and pranayama.

As always the class will both strengthen and restore.

Some experience of yoga recommended.

Hips to Heart

Hips to Heart

FOCUS

Strengthening and releasing the the pelvic area creating space and greater ability to move into beautiful backbends.

This workshop will incorporate a strong and dynamic full spectrum vinyasa practice with emphasis on moving within the full range of motion in the hips and exploring the freedom this allows to dive deeply and safely into backbends. The dynamic first half of the workshop will be followed by a slower and steadier dialogue with the body, returning to asanas for a greater length of time to work deeply into the hips, releasing tension in the spine allowing for backbends.

We will look at why the hips hold so much tension and use the tools that yoga offers to work through any resistance. There will be pranayama (breathing techniques) integrated into the practice to explore greater depth and dance with the blissful sensations that yoga evokes.

The workshop will close with a guided meditation and blissful savasana complete with head/neck massages.

All yogis will receive nutritious treats and heartwarming tea to reward and nourish their hard worked minds, bodies and souls.

Expect to work and breathe hard.

Requirements: Some experience is beneficial.
