Weekend 4 Apr 26-28 2019 with Doug Swenson
The days will start with breathing and meditation, followed by an asana practice that is built around the theoretical topic of the day such as: hip themes, arm balances, the spine and back body in backbends and supine twists, the ankles, feet, wrists in inversions, shoulder care for particular movements in asanas, as well as core/ pelvic floor stability. The afternoon sessions will focus on the art of sequencing, the use of props, wall work, the principles and techniques of hands-on adjustments, focusing on coordinating appropriate hands-on cues with verbal and visual cues for the asana program of the day.
The weekend with Eilin will explore fun ways of expressing creativity within sequencing yoga flows with specific aims, targeted to specific needs i.e. tailoring to beginners, pre and postnatal yoga, corporate classes and privates, etc. The practice will give you a taste of intuitive movement, spirals and waves, locomotion (animal movements), martial arts-inspired moves and unique hands-on adjustments for healing practices. You will also look into the use of walls and props to connect to your inner power - and partner work to empower each other.
