In this workshop we will work on the poses and transitions during salutations understanding how to create the vinyasa movement combining breathing techniques and bandhas activation. We will cover different drills and variations for this sequence including jump backs and forward as well as floating so any student can deepen their understanding and confidence to improve their yoga practice. Workshop II : Backbends & Chest Openers Backbends are known to be a group of asanas that many people can find challenging both physically and mentally. However, this is often the feeling when you are not approaching them properly. In this workshop we will work on the fundamental alignment principles and techniques to practice backbends safely. We will focus on spinal mobility and strength, going through the main asanas included in this group and integrating the role of our breath and muscles. The workshop is recommended for any student interested in deepening their backbend practice, since we will cover both smooth variations using props as well as more advanced versions of the asanas. Workshop III : Mastering Arm Balances & Inversions for All Inversions and arm balances as a part of our yoga practice help us to develop confidence as well as control and strength, adding a new fun challenge to our practice. In this workshop you will gain a clear understanding of this group of asanas, applying the three key elements needed to master them: anatomy, bandas and breathing. In order to achieve each posture we will practice warm-ups and drills and you will also learn variations using props to help you explore the sense of balance and control. This workshop is a great opportunity to bring your practice to the next level and reinforce your self-confidence to include this group of asanas as part of it.
