In this workshop I will address different topics that concern female yoga practitioners.  I will share with you my experience as a female Ashtangi and talk about how the practice can be different for us as women. I will explain you whether and how to practice during menstruation as well as some basic rules of doing yoga while pregnant. We will do a short practice that you can do during your period – you will learn which poses to modify and which are especially beneficial in this time.

WORKSHOP: BACKBENDING

Backbending is an important and often very challenging part of the practice – it requires not only flexibility, but also emotional readiness to open up and to overcome the fear associated with extending our spine.

In the workshop we will explore different preparations that will help open our chest, hips and the shoulders for backbends. We will discuss safe alignment in poses you know from the classes and try variations for all levels of proficiency. Among other asanas we will learn how to prepare for and safely do Urdhva Dhanurasana – the main backbend of Primary Series. I will also teach you a few therapeutic backbends that can help you relieve lower back pain.

Date: 12.12.2020 (Saturday), 10.00 – 12.00
Place: Weggisgasse 31, Luzern
Price: 50 CHF

The event will take place with the minimum of 3 participants and is limited to 8. Please book your spot by using the online calendar or contacting me directly: 0793815755 / info@ashtanga-luzern.ch.

The workshop will be an introduction to both theoretical and practical aspects of Ashtanga Yoga. It will provide a solid foundation for those who want to start or who already attended some classes, but would like to learn more about the method.

In the first part of the workshop I will explain the origins of the practice, its basic rules, philosophy and how to integrate yoga into your daily life. In the practical part we will have a closer look at the three main techniques – the ujjayi breath, asana and drishti. We will work on the beginning of Primary Series, which is the first and the most therapeutic sequence of the Ashtanga Yoga system, paying extra attention to the alignment of the asanas. Apart from the poses, you will learn how to connect the breath, the movement, and the point of focus so that your practice will not only develop strength and flexibility, but also focus and the feeling of internal peace.
