Refining your practice

Refining your practice
with Jani Jaatinen

Arm Balance Workshop
Sat 1 Apr 2017
10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Arm balances build focus and concentration and increase our body awareness and connectivity to the breadth. They work to cleanse the nervous system and exhilarate the body and mind.

In this workshop we will play with the techniques that serve to lengthen and strengthen the muscles required to successfully find your balance whilst maintaining lightness in the body. For those practitioners who are a little more advanced, we will introduce a variety of fun and challenging ways to transition to the next level.

Chest & Shoulder Opening
Sat 1 Apr 2017
13:30 am – 15:30 pm
Many of us spend so much time hunched over a computer that it’s impacting on our posture and the health of our spine.

In this workshop we will prepare the body and practice a range of movements to open your chest and shoulders. We’ll focus on cultivating a strong awareness of your own body’s range of movement and explore techniques to enable you to expand this range over time in order to develop your on-going practice.

Sun 2 Apr 2017
10:00 am – 12:00 pm
In this workshop, Jani will guide you through practical transitions and offer informative instruction to explore coming in and out of poses, learn to establish techniques and methods necessary to eventually master these floating transitions, by integrating bandhas in the poses.

You will come away from this workshop with the tools necessary to continue to build strength and lightness in your transitions, and in your entire practice!

Hip Opening Workshop
Sun 2 Apr 2017
13:30 am – 15:30 pm
The stress and activity of everyday life can often cause us to habitually move in certain ways and be in positions that lead to tightness and discomfort of our hips. In this workshop, we will focus on yoga asanas (postures) that will help release the tightness, tension, and pain in this area of our body.

This will be a deliciously challenging and flowing vinyasa sequence that will begin by creating heat and mobility in the joints and end with the long deep hip openers that our bodies crave
