During normal classes there is limited time to explore postures and students do not have the opportunity to practice long holds in different postures. Our workshops offer an excellent opportunity to explore postures in greater detail and give everyone a chance to socialise afterwards. Remember pain is only a sensation! If you want to open your body, you need to engage in long holds. Our next workshop is a 2 hours. focuses on long holds.

 Hip Opening

This workshop will focus on combating problems arising from the situations listed below and
equipping participants with the knowledge and techniques necessary for daily maintenance of healthy hips.

Our bodies were meant to be active and moving to enhance circulation, mobility and prevent defects and stagnation of the vital energy. In to day's society we spend a lot of time sitting or with restrictive repetitive movements which result in numerous problems such as: hip, back, knees, shoulders and digestive and other internal problems.

Join me with this month's mind body intelligent movement hip opening program and protect yourself from the problems sitting for long periods, running, cycling and stress may cause to the body's well being.

Long periods of sitting results in consistent compression of the hip flexors ( the muscles that join your abdomen and legs). Leading to shorting of the hip flexors which adjust the position or tilt the pelvis. This in turn upsets the muscles and structures above and below the hips, often resulting in knee and back pain due to tension in the hips.

Running and cycling can result in tight hips due to repeatedly using the hip flexors to lift the legs to propel forward and constant body weight impact.

Negative emotions lead to stress and tension in the body. Tense muscles and deep muscles of the hips are the centre for trapped energy. Therefore releasing the hips would free trapped emotions and result in lighter movement of the legs.

  Side Forward & Back Bends

This workshop is designed to help anyone suffering from back pain or a weak lower back and needs to strengthen their core and improve flexibility. We will engage in a variety of counter postures of forward, backward & side bends to make the spine and back more supple and elasticated.

Back Bends
back bends will help bring your spine back to its natural flexion and relieve chronic back or neck pain.
The asanas help open the chest and build strength all along your spine while simultaneously increasing flexibility and stimulate the nervous system. The combination of strength and flexibility will wipe away pain and give you back your body’s natural mobility and vibrance.

Our daily activities involve bending forward a lot, sitting, picking up things and children. All of which contribute towards defects and injuries as the spine is worked in one direction only. The spine is meant to be flexible and have a complete range of motion forward and backward. Therefore regularly practicing backbends you will restore your spine to its natural flexibility, reducing your chances of defects, injury and back pain. And Increase the flexibility and strength in your spine.

Forward Bends
Forward bends help to give an internal massage and improve the circulation to the various organs like the abdomen, pancreas, liver, intestines and kidneys. They also help to lengthen and strengthen the hamstrings, muscles of the inner leg, make the muscles of the back suppler and boost the strength of the legs and the knees as you surrendering to an intense and rejuvenating stretch.

Side Bends
Side-stretching poses lengthen the muscles between the ribs and pelvis, including parts of the low back, and open the sides of the rib cage, improving rib cage mobility and the expansiveness of the lungs, which makes breathing easier in all situations.

Yoga inversion poses help reduce spinal compression by reversing the pull of gravity whilst upside down.

  Beginners & Intermediate

 We embark on a very technical session, focusing on teaching points (safety and effectiveness of the poses) to enable the participant to be independent in the correct practice away from the class. Students will be helped into the poses and aligned and stretched by the teacher. This will allow for a deeper mind body experience and contribute towards individual private practice.

Each student will be assessed and progressed to the level that's appropriate to their development.
