Glasgow Weekend of Workshops
July 11 @ 1:00 pm - July 12 @ 3:30 pm
Book individually or as a weekend
Saturday 11th July: 1pm -3:30pm:
Find your own way to get upside-down in yoga and yield the benefits for your nervous system, immune system, and overall sense of wellbeing. In this workshop, we will look at handstand, forearm stand, headstand, and many passive and easily accessible inversions. You will find your unique path to getting up, staying up, and getting down in one piece. We will begin with customised preparations based on your combination of physical and mental barriers and learn to get up with the wall, with a partner, and with nothing but air around you. All levels welcome.
Arm Balance Challenge
Saturday 11th July 4:30pm – 7pm
Why do we work difficult yoga postures and how can we do so in a way that is skillful, mindful, and compassionate? This workshop will help you find your entry point into arm balances such as bakasana, side plank, and their countless variations in a way that is accessible to all levels. Learn how to see these shapes in all orientations to gravity and re-imagine how arm balances might look in your body. Beginning with the core and working outward through hip flexibility and shoulder strength, we will embrace together the challenge and joy that these postures provide. All levels welcome.
Sunday 12th July 1pm-3:30pm
Is your yoga practice a lot of stretching? Is it working for you? This workshop will help you develop diversity in your stretching techniques, whilst shattering myths and misconceptions. Through a new approach to warm-ups, standing postures, and cool-downs, you will learn the important difference between passive flexibility and active mobility. We will identify common areas of weakness and overstretch, and what to do in and out of class to find balance. We will answer common questions like: What makes someone more flexible than me? How long should I stretch? If I get strong will I be tight? All levels welcome.
