Teacher’s Workshop: Confidence in Cueing and Manual Assists
Friday 29 March, 6:30pm-8:30pm
It is not easy to lead a vinyasa class. Words come fast and furious and potential assists are aimed at moving targets. During this workshop you will learn how to develop clear teaching objectives, maximise the effectiveness of minimal and no-nonsense cues, and explore a method of assists that empower your students to experience the depths of their practices. This workshop will be a combination of discussion and practice. Open to teachers of all experience levels.
Find your flow: rhythmic vinyasa for mental well-being
Saturday 30 March, 10:00am-12:30pm
What are the techniques and requirements to ensure your vinyasa flow practice is pain-free, enjoyable, and improves your well-being? To answer, this workshop will have two goals. First: develop, refine, and advance your practice of the primary components of vinyasa, which include sun salutations, chaturangas, and transitional hops and steps. Second: ensure that you enlist these rhythmic movements and breath towards an aim of balancing your nervous system; in other words, feeling calm, feeling creative, feeling good. All levels welcome.
Inversions for everybody: handstand, forearm-stand, and more
Saturday 30 March, 2:00-4:30pm
Can everyone benefit from inversions or are they just showing off? In this workshop, we will explore the effects inversions have on your nervous system and 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. Experienced practitioners can learn the variations available once you are airborne. If all else fails, we will explore alternatives that yield the same benefits. All levels welcome.
