Vinyasa Essentials Session 1

Foundations of Practice

PLAY WITH - tadasana, plank pose, chatturanga, cobra, upward and downward facing dog

EXPLORE - building strength in the key principles of a sun salutation

AWAKEN - refinement of skills to create a healthy and sustainable practice 

This workshop will introduce you to some of the essential foundational elements of a Vinyasa practice, that we'll keep expanding on as we move through the program. Discover the stability and freedom of Tadasana (Mountain Pose) as the blueprint for all asana. We'll work through hand, wrist and shoulder stability for Plank and Chatturanga, with a focus on staying spacious through chest and shoulders, while refining upper body and core strength. Cultivate a sustainable yoga practice by learning how to use "a lot of your body a little bit" instead of "a little bit of your body a lot"!
