Chaturanga and Arm Balances Workshop

How many Chaturanga Dandasana are you doing in class? Chaturanga is one of the most used poses in Vinyasa or Power Yoga classes, butunfortunately often done incorrectly and unsafely, leading to injuries in shoulders, wrists and back. Chaturanga Dandasana is also the first step for many arm balance poses.

In this workshop we will study the common mistakes, the anatomy, the alignment of this basic but so complexed pose. You will learn to spot your own bad habits and how to correct them. We will explore some variations, playing with props and some sequences to build your strength. Finally, we will use that knowledge to do some arm balance poses, such as Bakasana (Crow) or Koundinyasana.

Mandala – 360 Degree Hips Workshop

The pelvis has been referred as “the junk drawer of emotions”, and loosening up the hips allows us to release deeply trapped emotions. But it also eases backpain, allows for deeper breathing and improves circulation to organs.

To get the hips unstuck and rediscover flexibility and good mobility, through a Mandala Vinyasa sequence using specific Asanas and transitions, this workshop will focus on strengthening, opening and stretching the hips through 360 degrees. We will finish with some Yin Yoga poses to complete the circle.

When: Sunday 27th October

Where: Samsara Mind and body (Earlsfield)

Yoga for cyclists and/or runners Workshops

Cycling and running are very intense activities for the body. Repeating the same movement over and over again creates tensions and stiffness, which can lead to bad posture and chronic pain (or even injury) in different parts of the body, mainly the back. Yoga can complement your training well.
 
In this workshop, through a Vinyasa practice, we will target releasing these tensions to give your body the ability to move more freely, to prevent pain and injury. The sequence is specifically designed for cyclists and runners and focuses especially on the hamstrings, quads, hips, gluteus and back.
Throughout the practice you will learn some tips you could incorporate into your own yoga practice and/or training. We will finish the workshop with some deep stretching and
relaxation.
 
This workshop is suitable for all levels, from beginners to more advanced yoga practitioners. If you are new to yoga, you will also find that beyond the physical benefits, yoga can offer much more, such as relaxation, stress management, a feeling of wellbeing, breath control, etc.
