The first hour of the workshop will cover an Ashtanga Vinyasa short form sequence. We will move through postures at the pace of the breath and hold postures as well to build strength and endurance. Focus will be on strong breathing and alignment. Ashtanga yoga is also known as yoga for athletes. It is an intelligent sequence that prepares the body from one posture to the other to get the most out of the practice.
In the second hour you will experience the benefits of Yin Yoga. This is a passive practice that takes stretches into a deeper level by reaching ligaments and connective tissue. Postures will be held between 3-5 minutes to relax the body and get the most benefits. Yin yoga utilizes gravity, breath, and a willingness to accept the physical sensations as means to help the body release unnecessary tension and tightness.
The workshop will take place on the JMAC tatami mat training space. Attendees may bring their own mat if preferred.
