Simon Park

  • Flow Studio Belfast 52a Hill Street Belfast BT1 2LB United Kingdom (map)

We're excited to welcome Simon Park for our Flow International Series in 2017.

Simon Park began his Yoga journey in 1995 with Shiva Rea in the World Arts and Cultures Department at UCLA. Later acclaimed by Yoga Journal as "one of the most influential and gifted Yoga teachers of the next generation”, he has been leading workshops, teacher trainings, and retreats around the world since 2002. His free-style Vinyasa is fluid, intuitive, and encourages freedom through self-expression. Profoundly influenced by the teachings of Shiva Rea, Richard Freeman, Maty Ezraty, Joan White, and Dharma Mitra, 'Liquid Flow Yoga' feels like a beautiful dance between classical and modern Yoga. Dubbed the "Flying Nomad", he draws inspiration from road legends such as Jimi Hendrix, who said, "the Earth is my home”.

Join Simon for three not-to-be-missed workshops:

Flow with the Force - Freestyle Vinyasa Workshop

Friday 2 June
5.30 - 8.00pm
Flow Studio Belfast, 52 Hill Street, Cathedral Quarter

A Vinyasa Flow practice that is a blend of classical and modern styles. Practice dynamic asana as a movement mediation in an open system that guides the student to feel the Yoga practice as an unscripted adventure. There is a focus on the inner workings of the breath on the body and mind; artful and creative transitions that add elegance to the flow of the practice. Alignment is detailed and energetic, yet adaptive for the individual practicioner. The principles of Vinyasa Krama are utilized to create an evolutionary practice that is appropriate for students of all levels.

Liquid Flow Yoga - Restore Your Prana

Enjoy a slowly developing, flowing sequence of postures that are fluidly powerful and energetically alive; a movement meditation for mental focus and overall lightness. Create space in the joints and spine, calm the nervous system and balance your energy. The asana flow is similar to the way tai-chi is practiced; slow, methodical and meditative.
