Asanas in Aktion

Asanas in Aktion - Trusting the inherent intelligence of the body. Basic-Advanced yogis can rewardingly participate.

The goal of this workshop is seeing the asanas as actions in space and not as fixed ideals to be achieved. By experiencing the freedom and efficiency of lightness in movement, the yogis will be guided towards exploring, understanding and trusting the anatomic intelligence and sensual capacities of their own body. We will focus on learning to more clearly direct energy to discover what the asanas "do". By integrating an awareness of the skeletal structure, tuning in to feedback from the nervous system and observing the physical effects of a robust breath practice we will be gliding, flowing, rolling and sliding between, in and out of the asanas.

Complex, not Complicated

Complex, not Complicated – Basic-Advanced yogis can rewardingly participate.

 

Expansive, enriching and pleasurable movement qualities discovered through complexity in attitude and approach. The focus of this workshop is the exploration and application of various ideas, metaphors and concepts from dance and somatic practices on our yoga practice. The goal is discovering the joy of complexity in body, attitude and thought and the power that has to bring feeling, pleasure and flow to your yoga practice

"Asanas in Action" and "Complex not Complicated" comprise the fundamental understanding of how I approach yoga.

Happy Hip-Star

Happy Hip-Star – Basic-Advanced yogis can rewardingly participate. 

This workshop is about demystifying the hips and more specifically, the connection between the pelvis, the spine and the femur bones. We will share a trove of collected ideas and approaches for exploring the complexity and mobility of the hip joint. This workshop is also thoroughly infused with lightness, because working on the hips is also sometimes just hard.
