With the popularity of Vinyasa Yoga or a dynamic flowing style of Yoga practice we can sometimes lose the opportunity to break down postures and shapes carefully to ensure that they are being practiced safely & effectively for YOUR body. Vinyasa practice is a beautiful way to gain a well-rounded practice for body & mind, moving in a meditative way with breath, but it is important to also spend some time working on the building blocks of Yoga to ensure that your practice is sustainable, particularly if you want to go deeper into the physical & energetic aspects. 

This series of workshops is for you if you:

  • Practice a flowing style of Yoga regularly but have not taken time in a beginner class or through workshops to break-down poses and techniques

  • Are suffering from injury which is exacerbated through practicing Yoga and you want to learn how to modify poses

  • Wish to take your practice to the next level and learn more advanced poses, breathing or meditation practices 

  • Just want to give yourself the gift of more Yoga knowledge and practice over 7 workshops!

This series will take place at Bright Bootcamp & Co Yoga Studio, 73 Churchill Ave, Bright VIC.

Sun Salutes

JAN 20, 2020 @ Bright Bootcamp, VIC.

Presented by Kylie, assisted by Emily

We will explore the foundational asanas (poses) of the Sun Salutations A & B during this deeper look at the practice through the lense of Hatha Yoga (where Vinyasa originated). We will work through the 12 poses of Classic Sun Salutes and Sun A & B as we breakdown the mechanics of each asana, allowing time for physical adjustments, anatomical alignment, questions and repetition. Poses including Mountain Pose, Forward fold, Chaturanga, Plank, Cobra, Upward Facing Dog & Downward Facing Dog will be our focus. This workshop is designed to help you find safe and effective alignment with these frequently practiced asanas and a deeper understanding of the overall practice itself. Come join us to take a look at how we Salute the Sun.

 

Foundational Poses

FEB 17, 2020 @ Bright Bootcamp, VIC.

Presented by Kylie & Emily

Building on the sun salutation postures we now break down more of the foundational asanas in Hatha Yoga. We’ll focus on standing postures such as the Warrior poses, Standing Forward Folds, Standing Balances & Triangle/Side-angle variations. Some of the seated, supine & prone poses, as well as transitions into and out of shapes, will also be looked at in detail from an anatomical and energetic view-point. We will most importantly work on building the shapes with your body, keeping the overall intention of the pose in mind, rather than trying to force our different bodies into a certain shape! Come along to create more confidence and ease in how you move your body in class.

 

Core & Bandhas

MAR 16, 2020 @ Bright Bootcamp, VIC.

Presented by Emily, assisted by Kylie

In this workshop we create a safe space to talk about and practice pelvic floor awareness and build core strength (working on more than just the abs!). Students will learn briefly about the role of the pelvic floor, abdominal, psoas, back and gluteus muscles and the effect of their weakness or tightness on posture and general health, including the energetic side of the practice of Mula Bandha & expanding these concepts to other Bandhas, or energetic locks, in the body. Students are invited to come along to this workshop if they would like to feel more connected to their own core support, to be better able to flow and balance during their yoga practice.

Philosophy & Meditation

APR 6, 2020 @ Bright Bootcamp, VIC.

Presented by Emily

This workshop is an opportunity to deepen your knowledge about the philosophy of Yoga and meditation practices beyond the physical postures. We will delve into how we can understand yoga as both a tool to get to know ourselves more intimately and as a state of being. Students will be walked through the Koshas, or energetic layers of the body. By blending and combining the theory of Patanjali’s 8 limbs of Yoga with Vedic philosophy, we’ll tell the story of the personal journey within that yoga offers and the ways that Yoga as both an ancient & modern practice can help us to live with more peace and ease in the world. The workshop will consist of both theoretical explanations and experiential learning through postures, group discussion, pranayama, chanting and meditation, including some specific mindfulness techniques.

Pranayama

FEB 3, 2020 @ Bright Bootcamp, VIC.

Presented by Emily, assisted by Kylie

Yoga is not Yoga without awareness of breath. Breath is our life force, or prana, and how we draw in and release that breath can impact our overall well-being. During a flowing Yoga practice we often use a technique called the Ujjayi breath which creates a little heat in the body and acts as an anchor for our mind, so that we are more able to connect our movement with breath. In this workshop we will further break down the Ujjayi breath, spending time on it to be able to share questions and tips, ensuring that students are breathing diaphragmatically and with ease and smoothness during class.We will also work with the anatomy of breathing, exploring the directions of breath and the ways we can use the breath to control our energy. Some more advanced pranayama practices will also be taught, that can be wonderful tools to deepen any Yoga class.

Backbending

MAR 2, 2020 @ Bright Bootcamp, VIC.

Presented by Kylie

We only have one spine, so we need to ensure we nourish it with safe movement in order to lengthen (create space) and strengthen (to help stabilise) our spine and overall function. This workshop will focus on the safe alignment in backbending asanas, plains of movement and benefits (both physical and energetic) of backbending in Yoga. We will also explore the energetics of the the spine, our central channel, and experience pranayama to help balance the energy channels (Nadis) along with soothing the nervous system. You are invited to get a little more intimate with your spine and discover how you can look after your spine in and with your yoga practice.

Arm Balancing & Inversions

MAR 30, 2020 @ Bright Bootcamp, VIC.

Presented by Kylie, assisted by Emily

Have you been wanting to explore the excitement of arm balancing in Yoga but not quite sure where to start? Arm balancing and inversions in Yoga may seem a little intimidating to some, or may spike curiosity in others. This workshop will focus on demystifying arm balancing as well as exploring how inversions open us up to new perspectives. We will explore how we set up for arm balances, transitions in and out of the poses and what is required to prepare us properly. We will take a look at the benefits of being inverted in your yoga practice and why it is an important addition. We will dive into technique and alignment, and investigate how to make arm balancing and inversions more accessible for you in your body, regardless of your level as a yoga practitioner. So come along and have a little fun at this exciting and informative workshop.
