English Yoga Workshops in Friedenau, Berlin
In this workshop we will open up the sequence of a sun salutation and look at each individual asana, posture, that makes up the whole. The salutation can be modified to all degrees of flexibility, strength, and stamina. You will acquire tools to modify it to meet your own body. You will come away from the workshop feeling more grounded in you salutations.
Looking at and feeling the details
Often in class we move quickly from one posture to the next. Here we will stop and pause on each posture. We will look at its details. We will explore how each postures varies with a change of a foot position or angle of the hip. Here you will have the time and space to ask the questions you have about certain postures. You will get to know each posture a little more, and feel more confident in them when you practice them in your regular classes.
Where do I begin when I start to do yoga at home? What should I do? How much should I do? Where? How will I find the time? These questions and others that arise around creating a home practice for yourself will be explored in this workshops. We will work through three sequences to do at home. You will get a worksheet detailing the sequences to help and remind you when practice on your own.
Headstand. Handstand. Peacock. Shoulder stand. Why are they so scary? Can everyone do them? How can I do them safely? I remember when I began my yoga teacher training thinking that I was too heavy, too weak, my bottom was too big, to ever be able to do inversions. I was scared of hurting my neck. I was scared of falling down and being a looser. In this workshop, I will create an open and supportive atmosphere to explore the fear and technicalities that go hand in hand with turning yourself (and your world) upside down.
Yin yoga in amazing. Having yin yoga “done to you” can be even more amazing. In this workshop you will work with a partner. You take turns assisting or holding each other in yin postures. We will discuss more the theory behind yin yoga in order to deepen our own practice. So come with your sister, your son, your partner, your best friend, your colleague and experience yin yoga in a new light.
