A regular inversions practice helps us cultivate insight, develops mental discipline and widens our spiritual horizons. These challenging but rewarding poses also help us develop strength (particularly in the neck, spine and arms) and poise. In this workshop, we will learn the principles of alignment needed to sustain a safe and secure inversions practice.General level workshop: The Elements (Saturday) According to yogic principles, everything in the universe is made up of five subtle elements: the earth element is grounding; water brings flow; fire energizes and stimulates; air expands and opens; and space connects us to the universal spirit. Practicing a variety of poses, including standing poses, we will explore our own unique expression of these elemental forces.General level workshop: Akarna Dhanurasana, The Archer – Direct the arrow of awareness.(Sunday) Akarna Dhanurasana develops strength in the arms and torso, flexibility in the legs and hips and calms the mind. We will prepare the body with a series of poses including Supta Padangustasana I, II and III, Baddha Konasana, and Janu Sirsasana.General level workshop: Restorative/pranayama (Sunday) Come and experience Bobby Clennell’s mentally calming and physically rejuvenating restorative class. Restorative poses teach us to be in the asana for longer so its effects penetrate deeper. We will also learn pratyahara and dhyana techniques to become familiar and more confidant with a deeper level of spiritual practice.
