Function and Flow Vinyasa
Saturday, October 28, 2018
1:00 to 3:30 pm
Are you ready to finesse the details of your vinyasa yoga practice? Are you looking for a way to balance strength & flexibility and to move with greater ease on the mat? Are you a yoga teacher who is ready to up-level your cueing with a deeper awareness of alignment? Join us for this explorative workshop!
The Sanskrit word "vinyasa" translates as "to thread." This definition speaks to the importance of transitions in a vinyasa practice, as poses are "threaded" or linked together by the breath. Oftentimes during vinyasa yoga, we focus on "arriving" in the pose rather than bringing our full awareness to the joy of the transition, the moment in between. Moving slowly and sometimes repetitively through transitions rather than with momentum or haste creates balanced strength & flexibility, prevents common yoga injuries, builds endurance, and sets us up for optimal alignment once in a posture.
As joints are the "transition zone" or meeting place for all major bones/muscles/nadis in the body, we will look at the basic function and form of the joints to inform our discussion of intelligent vinyasa flow. We will begin with a brief discussion of anatomy, then move through an active yoga flow practice to experiment, listen, and support our individual structure with attention to the joints and transitioning ease fully. This workshop is recommended for those who have a moderate-advanced practice.
