About the event
Ever wondered why you should press your elbows in towards your ribs or go from low plank to upward facing dog?
While not only being one of the most requested workshops, poor stability and confusion around Chaturanga [four-limbed staff pose] and sun salutations is something I notice amongst students in every class. Chaturanga is a posture we visit often in a drop-in class but never spend a lot of time in. In a flow based class we can move through up to 10-20 sun salutations – so better make it a stable and steady routine.
This workshop will break down the different poses that create sun salutation A, B and C with extra emphasis on Chaturanga, exploring alternatives and modifications to this powerful but challenging posture. The aim of the workshop is to go deeper into the anatomical aspects of practicing Chaturanga and students will leave feeling more confident to choose the most appropriate alternative of Vinyasa and Chaturanga in their own practice and in future yoga classes.
The workshop is open to all levels and no prior experience of yoga is required. It is limited to 10 students which will allow each student to dive into the workshop from their own level of practice. Together we will visit all alternatives and levels of Chaturanga and the different sun salutations, but there will be time for everyone to explore those levels most appropriate for their own specific practice.
During the workshop, the firey and heating elements of sun saltuations will be balanced by cooling, calming counter poses and the physical practice will be interwoven with theory and rest. The workshop will begin with a preparatory intro flow and end with a guided mediation and relaxation.
