Breathing techniques – different forms and their effects
Pranayama – Integration in asana/postures and as a stand-alone practice

Break Through Your Hippy Myths
There is not one body exactly like yours on this planet, you are one of a kind baby. Together lets explore the myths you may be holding around the commonly misunderstood hip area. This strong, slow and steady practice will hone your awareness into your unique hip sockets and help to balance strength and flexibility so that you can expand into full possibility.
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 2nd, 3pm – 5.30pm
Free Your Heart & Let Life Flow
The backbend communicates one of the deepest, most beautiful expressions of an open heart and mind within the yoga practice. Backbends are a paradox of constant oscillation and steady harmony. Because of their complexity, they can easily be misunderstood and poorly executed. In this workshop, we will discover how to achieve health and longevity for the spine through extension versus compression. Practicing basic backbends like upward facing dog and upward facing bow directs our pathway toward more advanced backbends like handstand/forearm balance, scorpion, and hollowback. Expect to open and strengthen your upper back, shoulders, side body, and thoracic and lumbar spine.
