Friday the 16th : Led Class and Talk 18:00pm – 20:00pm

Saturday the 17th : Morning My Sore 09:00am – 11:00am

Workshop 13:00pm – 15:00pm Jump Back and Jump Through Lightness and
Strength workshops.
So many student see the complicated transitional movements of Ashtanga Yoga and wonder : Is that even possible in my body?

Jump backs and jump throughs require you to tap your muscular potential and embrace raw physicality.

At the same time they require you to move your body with a nuance that triggers a sense of lightness.

In this class we will break down the subtle body mechanics that make graceful transitions possible and then practice drills that get you connected to your base and the strength required to float.

We will detail both the fundamentals of these moves and also look at how they relate to more complicated arm balances. I once told my teacher that my arms were too short to lift up and jump back , so now a knowing smile comes to my face when I hear those same words from my students.

This class will leave you feeling empowered , knowing that it may be hard work and a long journey , but you can jump back.


Sunday the 18th : Morning My Sore 09:00am – 11:00am

Workshop 13:00pm – 15:00pm Arm Balance and inversion Foundations.

How the heck is that even possible ? If you’ve ever wondered that when looking at a handstand or high crow pose , then is the place for you!

Through fun , yet challenging , drills we will get in touch with your deep core strength. You’ll practice techniques to help you progressively build a safe practice, including bandha , alignment and strengthening exercises.

To participate all you need is a willingness! You will get upside down in this class as we explore the basic components of arm balances and inversions and the mind body connection they require.
