Tripsichore 5 day intensive training 2-6 April
A Challenging Practice – Accessible To Everyone This 5 day course is meant for anyone who wants to intelligently move their yoga practice forward. Regardless of your current level, this Intensive Course will impart the techniques that will show you how to knowledgeably approach yoga. The Course will have you trying – and accomplishing – material that often appear to be difficult. It will be hard work, but almost everyone who already practises yoga can do it.
Each day, the Intensive will start with the kind of class that Tripsichore has done daily for over 20 years – followed by a breakdown of the various components of the class. Participants will learn how to do inversions, unusual balances, back bends and twists and, as well, they will gain a deep understanding of how and why sequences are constructed in a certain order.
The class focuses on challenging asanas and variations with an emphasis on breaking down Tripsichore's technical approach to breathing, backbends, inverted work and Tripsichore Sun Salutes. The technique used in our yoga practice focuses on the importance of uniting the mind and the body through the use of breath. Our linking of unusual postures is innovative, but our methods are respectful of orthodox traditions. In this Intensive, we will explain our techniques used to achieve some of the “spectacular” postures, which we believe to be the same approach as for some of the apparently “simple” postures.
Tripsichore contends that apart from competency and mastery, creating spectacular asanas has much to do with the energetic intention of the practitioner. In this Intensive Course, Edward Clark (creator of Tripsichore) and Nikki Durrant will expertly guide participants on a journey through the innovative Tripsichore Sun Salutes - the glory of Tripsichore's technique – and further into an exploration of an advanced asana practice.
Tripsichore’s approach to yoga is both orthodox and innovative. Renowned for its physical difficulty, it is also concerned with the intellectual reasons for attempting material that is physically demanding. While Tripsichore is known for unusual asanas, it is equally concerned with what the mind does to create these shapes. The Tripsichore techniques require the full engagement of breath, mind, and body and because of this, there occurs a well-developed awareness of what the practitioner experiences in the present moment.
Tripsichore is, perhaps, the most cogently designed Vinyasa technique in the world. Its practitioners learn and execute fluid inversions, back bends, and twists with ease and grace. The Tripsichore technique is recognised for its use of the Sun Salute as a template for developing everything from handstands to kick overs…not done as an acrobat might, but with the mental presence of a contemplative yogi.
Students who successfully complete the entire training program will receive a certificate of attendance from both Tripsichore and Anahata Yoga Studio.
