Yoga Anatomy Weekend Immersion

Saturday 25 & Sunday 26 November 2017

9.30-5.00pm (90 min lunch break)

Flow Studio, 52 Hill Street, Cathedral Quarter

Earlybird - £185

Full Weekend - £210

PLEASE NOTE THIS SERIES OF WORKSHOPS IS FOR A FULL WEEKEND AND CANNOT BE PURCHASED IN PART.


SATURDAY

9.30am - 12.30pm

Introduction to Healing Through Breath-Centered Yoga
Yoga practice in the tradition of Krishnamacharya and Desikachar exhibits many distinctive principles and practices not found in other Hatha Yoga lineages. Details of breath sequencing, coordination with movement and spinal action are just some of the subjects we will explore in this highly interactive, experiential and informative session.
The later teachings of Krishnamachrya, as imparted to Leslie’s teacher T.K.V. Desikachar, emphasized the utmost importance of tailoring the practices to the unique needs of each individual, above all else. Leslie will these present these teachings from an historical, scholarly and anatomical perspective while leading participants into a progressively deeper understanding of how to adapt yoga practice to the specific needs of each student, whether in group or individual practice.

2.30 - 5.00pm

Preventing and Healing Injuries Through Yoga
Injuries occur when we provoke too much movement from too few places. This day-long intensive is essentially a crash-course in the fundamentals of therapeutic yoga education. We will draw from the histories, injuries and concerns of workshop participants to identify and address the most common sources of stress in yoga practice.
Working with the group, and individually with selected participants, we will explore practical modifications to asana, the creative use of breath, language and imagery, and simple hands-on adjustments. This is Leslie’s opportunity to re-create the context in which he learned the one-on-one application of yoga from his teacher, T.K.V. Desikachar.


SUNDAY

9.30am - 12.30pm & 2.30 - 5.00pm:

Breath-Centered Asana and Vinyasa – Individualized Adaptation and Modification
This full-day immersion will begin with the practice of a specially modified sequence of standing postures that flow together with the breath. We will then use participants’ unique experiences to inspire an investigation of how to adapt breath and posture for individual therapeutic objectives. Topics will include:

  • Anatomically-based alignment principles
  • How to vary breath cueing for specific effects
  • Adapting to form of an asana to get to the essence of its function
  • How to tailor teaching language and imagery for maximum benefit

Ample time will be devoted to individual concerns. Bring your therapeutic questions and anatomical curiosity!

Ashtanga Yoga for Everybody

  • Flow Studio Belfast

with Luke Jordan

Luke Jordan is one of a small number of teachers in the world Certified to share the advanced teachings of the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method as it was taught by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois and continues to be passed on by Sharath Jois. Luke first came to the practise in 2000 after a period of deep personal inquiry and involvement with alternative spiritual practises. From the first 'Ujjayi' breath, Luke was hooked and soon found his way to Mysore, India to practise with Guruji (K P Jois). Since then Luke has been travelling internationally giving classes, workshops and seeking out teachers who can deepen his understanding of this mysterious thing called ‘yoga’ on both a physical level and the spiritual. Luke holds a Masters degree in Indian Religion and seeks in his teachings to combine the physical and philosophical elements of Yoga to make a greater whole.

This workshop is designed for seasoned practitioners and beginners alike. While working on the basics of the 'form' of the Ashtanga Yoga practise we will at the same time work on deepening the levels of subtle awareness that makes this special yoga practise a whole.

Following this workshop, Luke will be providing a week of traditional 'Mysore Style' Yoga at our Malone studio (51 Malone Road) - Monday 1st to Friday 5th May from 6.30-8.30am. This is the traditional way of learning the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method. Students receive one-on-one instruction within a group setting. This is the only way to develop the intensity of concentration necessary to make this yoga practise flourish.

We are delighted to offer Go Slow Yoga once again with Sarah Lynch & Denis Jackson.

This is a yoga workshop with its roots in slowing down through the practice of yoga, yin, self massage and yoga Nidra. In this fast paced world, slowing down is the real challenge: shifting our awareness and attention to a place that allows us to cultivate deep release physically and mentally.

Through this workshop we will learn simple, yet powerful, self care techniques that can be woven into daily life, creating slowness as part of a daily practice. The challenge presented in this workshop will not come from physically complex movement, but taking simple postures and working slowly.

Meredith Cameron: Yoga Stability

  • Flow Studio Belfast

This workshop weekend will grow your practice and your capacity for attention. Exploring Katonah concepts with discussion and a variety of familiar poses that help us kick old habits and rewire our lives, by finding stability, capacity and vision, which will light up newer ways of thinking. We will: - Explore familiar yoga poses; break them down and add angles of geometry; gather around and learn that we all have our own set of conditions to work with. There will be heaps of adjustments so that we can feel what it's like to be on our own symmetrical grid. We often do so many poses from an unstable foundation.

Once we find our stability by cross referencing and using our bones as measurement tools (and angles of geometry), then we are able to give our organs efficiency and have a capacity to be conscious. Things reconcile when form is formidable: use something the proper way and it will clean up. So often we sit in the hips and back on our butt, and it becomes stagnant and slumped. We start using compensatory skills, thus not providing ourselves with proper insight and potential. This workshop is all about finding stability and efficiency - getting off of ourselves and getting over ourselves. It's about having a good life. As we learn and practice the components of stability, we are then able to translate this back into a flow practice and into our lives. Doesn't it feel nice to be stable? Bring a pen and paper for the curious.

KARPAY - PERSONAL POWER
with Helena Lavery

Saturday 25 February
2.00 - 5.00pm
Flow Studio, 52 Hill St, Cathedral Quarter

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.”― Marianne Williamson

In Qero high in the Andes, a Paqo (Shaman) who knows their Personal Power is held in the highest regard. A Karpay Ayni (human energy exchange) with such a Paqo is considered the greatest of honour. Their personal power is not measured on their physical ability, but on how adept they are at moving energy, they also know the full capacity of their power which keeps their integrity in tact.

The essence of all being is living energy (Kausay). Our physical and energetic health depend on the unrestricted flow of this life force energy, it is the source of wholeness and wellness. The channels through which kausay flows, can become heavy, blocked or stagnant due to factors within and sometimes outside of our control. Ultimately, being aware of the flow of energy sustaining us, enables us to take charge of our own well-being by practicing how to drive, absorb and transform heavy energy into energy that empowers us. When we are grounded and in in a good state of mind and health, the energy is lighter and free-flowing. Being in the flow of life, we have an unobstructed view of our purpose and the direction we are headed.

“Change the way you look at things and the things your look at change” - Wayne Dyer

The yoga in this workshop will help you push through some of your limiting beliefs about yourself, while being conscious of your capacity. We will practice some Andean techniques to drive energy in ourselves and through others, breaking down the barriers that stand between us. There will as always be some sacred chocolate from the cacao spirit of Guatemala to assist us.

“Faith is taking the first step even when you can’t see the whole staircase.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

*** PLEASE NOTE:

- Cacao increases the heart rate by 20% giving more blood flow to the brain by 40%. If you are prone to migraines, have a heart condition or are on antidepressants, please consult me before coming.

- Some of the cacao bombs contain NUTS - not suitable for people with nut allergies. ... Though, if you do have a nut allergy, please let me know so I can make more of the bombs without nuts.

- Try not to have caffeine, as this may decrease the effectiveness of your journey.

The numbers of this workshop are limited, advanced booking is essential.

Saturday 28 January / 2-5pm/ 52 Hill Street / Investment £30

Most of us are familiar with the term Hatha yoga. Hatha is the union of the Sun and moon, masculine and feminine, left and right, above and below. These polarities are present within not just the external world, but also within us, in our body, mind and breath.

In this workshop we will look at how we can recognize, integrate and connect these qualities, via the philosophy of yoga and Tantra and the practice of asana, pranayama, mantra and yantra.

This workshop will allow both new and established practitioners and teachers to both integrate these subtleties into their regular practice, and to draw a deeper experience of wholeness from it.

David Swenson

  • Flow Studio Belfast

David began his journey of Yoga in 1969 when he and his brother Doug practiced in a small park at the end of their street in Houston, Texas. There were few sources for yoga at that time so they practiced from whatever books they could find. In 1973 David discovered Ashtanga after he met David Williams and Nancy Gilgoff in Encinitas, CA.

In 1975 David and Nancy brought K. Pattabhi Jois to the U.S. for the first time and Swenson was fortunate enough to be there. He then initiated studies directly with the master. He made his first trip to Mysore in 1977. David is one of only a handful of Westerners to have learned the full Ashtanga system including all of the asana sequences and pranayama as originally taught by K. Pattabhi Jois.

Today David is recognized as one of the world's foremost practitioners and instructors of Ashtanga Yoga. He tirelessly travels year round to teach and offer workshops. His courses are presented in a supportive and compassionate fashion, making it accessible to all levels of practitioner to participate.

AYNI - The Andean Law of Reciprociprocity - Interchange of Energy

AYNI - The Andean Law of Reciprociprocity - Interchange of Energy

  • Flow Studio Belfast

With Helena Lavery

A workshop that blends together - Yoga, Andean Traditions and Guatemalan Ceremonial Cacao.

Basic outlay of the workshop:


Cacaco bombs are eaten - the cacao increases the heart rate by 20% giving more blood flow around the body for flexibility and focus. The yoga will speed up this process and also help to ground and centre. Then we delve into some of the finer aspects of the Andean tradition - doing group work to move Kausay (living energy) more freely within ourselves and between each other. Finishing with a shamanic journey - a deep form of meditation with drumming to integrate, to set intentions or to request higher knowledge.

The Andean tradition is extremely flexible and spacious. It has structure, but no rigid rules and dogmas. Only one moral rule exists in the Q’ero tradition: the law of ayni – the sacred art of reciprocity. Put simply: “When you give something, you are entitled to get something back, and when you get something you have an obligation to reciprocate and give something back.” Ayni is about lifting each other up to higher levels so that everyone grows. It is about sharing, so all have what they need. It is about sharing knowledge and wisdom so that humanity grows and harmony is strengthened. Ayni is a form of equality.

*** PLEASE NOTE:

- Cacao increases the heart rate by 20% giving more blood flow to the brain by 40%. If you are prone to migraines, have a heart condition or are on antidepressants, please consult me before coming.

- Some of the cacao bombs contain NUTS - not suitable for people with nut allergies. ... Though, if you do have a nut allergy, please let me know so I can make more of the bombs without nuts.

- Try not to have caffeine, as this may decrease the effectiveness of your journey.

The numbers of this workshop are limited, advanced booking is essential.

Go Slow at Flow

  • Flow Studio Belfast

This is a yoga workshop with its roots in slowing down through the practice of yoga, yin, self massage and yoga Nidra. In this fast paced world, slowing down is the real challenge: shifting our awareness and attention to a place that allows us to cultivate deep release physically and mentally.

Through this workshop we will learn simple, yet powerful, self care techniques that can be woven into daily life, creating slowness as part of a daily practice. The challenge presented in this workshop will not come from physically complex movement, but taking simple postures and working slowly.

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! 

We would love to slow down with you :)
