Flexibility Journey on Back & Spine

This Flexibility Journey on Back & Spine is the first part of a series. More information on the coming workshops will follow soon.

I Flexibility Concepts and Methods 
We will start with a short introduction to the main flexibility concepts and methods in yoga and how they are applied in different yoga styles. We will look at active & passive flexibility as well as dynamic & static stretching.

II Awareness
The main goal of my teaching and this workshop is to increase your understanding of your own body. We will use mobility and flexibility "tests" to examine where your body has imbalances and restrictions in movement.

III Isolation
Having not a naturally flexible body myself, I constantly was (and still am) in search of the most effective way to increase my flexibility and improve my own yoga practice. Flexibility is a life-long journey that needs time and patience, but targeting your weaknesses makes this process more effective and you can track your progress much better, which will keep you motivated in the long run. We will look at specific exercises to increase flexibility and mobility of your spine & back and which you can do easily at home.

IV Integration
In this last part we will integrate everything into a dynamic and fun flow where we will focus more on the sensation (of how a yoga posture feels) rather than the form (how the posture looks).

This workshop is based on my experience of my teaching and my own practice. Having observed so many different bodies and seen their transformations I believe that everybody can transform no matter where you are at and what age you are. My yoga roots lie in ashtanga yoga but I have added so much from experienced teachers and athletes around the globe. I am very much looking forward to share everything I have learned so far. 

Places are limited. Please email me to reserve a spot. Payment needs to be done in advance to secure a spot. Payment in cash in my classes or twint/bank transfer.
