    The magic of yoga unveils itself when the body knows, understands, and intelligently responds to each posture, void of any mental fluctuations. But with so much stimulating the physical practice: the cues, the pace, the sequence, the music, the mental cloudiness, and even the energy from the day, we get lost in the whirlwind of thought and take away the true beauty of yoga’s offerings.

    Together in this workshop, we will dive into the seemingly basic structure of our human anatomy and realize the magnitude of muscular activity, skeletal alignment, and breathwork required within our flows. The purpose? To break down your body and re-vamp the way you understand and appreciate it. Get ready for some strong & earthy standing sequences, fiery core & glute work, and essential pranayama techniques (to harness your vital life force). Going “back to basics” in the most simple, primal, and holistic way will give you the tools to take your practice to the next level, beyond the postures, beyond the mat, and with a really nice booty ;)

    #2 Humanity & Headspace: Targeting the Heart, Hands, and Power to Heal
    19 November 2016 / 11am - 1pm

    The human form is an invaluable gift. The yoga practice allows us to treat the body like artwork, but we can only claim our value as an artist, when we have mastered the mind. This is why we practice presence, mindfulness, intentional movement and communication.

    This special workshop is all about bridging your human-ness with an absolute Divine source, an Ultimate reality, or Nirvana. The flow will embody a watery & whimsical quality, to develop fluidity along the spine, more openness in the heart-space and more clarity in the headspace. We will explore the direct links between the hands, arms, heart centre, and the deliverance of a universal healing energy with mudras (gestures), meditation, and expressive movements within your traditional postures. I want you to feel more freedom and confidence in your outer shell, to discover a more meaningful purpose in why you practice asana, and ultimately realizing the radiance, beauty, and bliss that already exists within you.
