Anatomy of the Breath

When movement and breath are combined our practice becomes increadibly powerful. In this unique workshop we will explore how to make deep breathing effortless. We will learn the mechanics of complete Yogic breath, the physical apparatus, the energetic and emotional aspects of smooth and rich breathing and how to improve the whole system during our regular physical yoga practice.

Pain Free Backbends

This workshop takes a look into the physical and psychological obstacles that can arise with backbends. We will have an in-depth look at each segment of the spine, limiting factors and areas of weakness. We will dive deep into foundational asanas that promote strength and flexibility to the supporting muscles of the spine. When we build a foundation, it can bring confidence, softness and relaxation which are all necessary for pain free backbends.
