6pm-8pm Yoga Workshop — Ageless Spine: Unveiling The Secrets For A Better Backbend Practice –
If the words ‘intimidating’ or ‘painful’ come to mind when you describe backbends, this class is for you. In this all level workshop, we’ll cover the elements necessary to eradicate physical pain, mental rambling and overall stress that may arise from this family of poses. There’s a better, calm and, yes, comfortable way to approach them without straining your lower back and neck or jamming the shoulders. After a proper warm up, we’ll cover several techniques, tips, exercises to access the thoracic spine, isolate flexors’ mobility and increase shoulder range effortlessly, so we can conquer the issues that come with backbending. Poses like Eka Pada Rajakapotasana I & II, Natarajasana – as well as plenty of variations – will be deconstructed in detail. Throw preconceptions and frustrations out the window, leave refreshed, renovated and with plenty of ideas to incorporate at home! All levels welcome.

6pm-8pm Yoga Workshop — Hip Wisdom: Key To Your Treasure Chest For A Lasting Practice –
If you think your hips are locked like a vault door, then this class is for you. If you feel ‘stuck’ in your hip openers, can’t seem to improve them or don’t know where to go, this class is also for you! The body’s multidimensional aspect calls for a much more complex conversation than just talking about ‘tight’ or ‘open’ hips. This class will lead you progressively, through a number of exercises and a thorough sequence, into the complexity of the hips and how to break things down so they’re manageable and applicable to our personal needs. Building up from seated stretches and breathing techniques, flowing slowly through standing poses, until we arrive to our peak poses to deeper understand how to properly rotate the hip joint without involving the knee nor weakening the lower back. Come ready to explore and find some key elements that will bring new understanding to this part of your practice. All levels welcome.

10:30am-12:30pm Yoga Workshop — Inversions: Find Courage, Wisdom, Alignment And Feel Indomitable –
Going upside down is scary, thrilling, frustrating. It requires technique, consistent practice and attention to detail in order to balance freely. I believe anyone has the ability to balance on their hands, forearms or head, when given enough attention to detail, alignment cues, bandha emphasis and mental imagery. Whether you’re starting to invert, you’d like to venture away from the wall but are too scared, or you want to gain more control in your entries, exits, or transitions from/into arm balances, this class will be filled with instruction, exercises, breath work and much more to help you go far and beyond. Gain strength, knowledge, confidence and come out feeling unstoppable. Let’s take flight, shall we? All levels welcome.
1pm-3pm: Asana Clinic – Inversions Clinic: Find the perfect line –
This clinic is designed to help you improve your inversions practice, as well as to give you information to help others with their inversions journey. We will discuss the phases a practitioner goes through as they start and practice inversions, how to gain balance and strength, how to find the appropriate skeletal position to hold the inversions with less effort, how to work on transitions and how to have fun doing it all.
Sunday, June 7th
10:30am-12:30pm Yoga Workshop — Transitions: Tips To Caress Without Stress An Imaginary Canvas –
This class will approach a number of asanas (standing, sitting, inverted, arm balances) and, more importantly, will help you figure out ways to link them effortlessly and safely. A good sequence (Vinyasa Krama), in the right order, can get you easily to places you haven’t been before. When you use smooth transitions to tie things up, it can feel like a moving meditation, serene and quiet; it can also build momentum, concentration and strength. Get ready to experiment both ends of the spectrum, move seamlessly in and out of poses, work on your floating skills, barely brushing the mat and air-drawing shapes. No prior flying experience necessary. Just the desire to do so!
During these clinics we will learn how to approach your adjustments in a safe and creative manner, so you can practice safely and efficiently, adding more tricks into your yoga teacher skillset. Adjustments Clinics are extremely practical, having the students practice with one another, while we discuss best practices, special cases, and learn to individualize the delivery for each body.
The sequence of the poses during the class is the most powerful tool the yoga teacher has to make a yoga class memorable. A well designed sequence will prepare the body for poses that are not available without the proper warm up and preparation. The objective of an optimal yoga sequence is to inspire, prepare and propel the student into areas of his or her practice that were out of reach before. During this training we will cover the main themes, sub-themes and peak poses for each family of postures, we will discuss the correct structure of a yoga class and we will practice with some practical exercises and discussions.

Meditation Workshop – Creating happiness –
Sunday, June 7th, 1pm-3pm
Can we find happiness as a state of being? And how much control do we have to create this state in ourselves? During these meditations we will explore the role of meditation in creating happiness, on how to use the information we gather to give us peace and how to use gratitude to raise our frequency.
Restorative Movement Workshops are designed to rewire how the brain communicates with the nervous system. While the exercises are always soft, subtle, slow and pain free, the effects are deep. These workshops must be scheduled at the end of the day, never before another class. Students should rest after these workshops to allow their bodies to integrate the new information.
Saturday, June 6th, 4pm-6pm
Restorative Movement Workshop – Lengthening the Spine –
Every nerve controlling every muscle in the body comes out of the spine. It bends forward, backwards, twists, lengthens and holds an enormous amount of weight to help us live our lives and practice yoga. In this workshop we will loosen up the entire spine, find new space in the adjacent muscles and as a result improve our posture.
