Key aspects of any vinyasa (flow) yoga practice. Explore these 3 ingredients of vinyasa styles of yoga and understand how they relate to the 8 limbs of ashtanga yoga. We will be practicing techniques to utilise during a vinyasa (flow) yoga session which will help deepen your own yoga practice. Create a healthier body through engaging these techniques. Breath control leads to stabilisation of the mind. There will be a focus on the basis of ujjayi pranayama (victorious breath) and how to use this in relation to movement within the practice. There will also be practice techniques in engaging yogic locks (bandhas) in relation to both yoga postures (asana) and breathing (pranayama) techniques. Bandhas help control the energy in the body and can help develop and stronger, lighter practice. We will focus on these locks to become more stable in a posture. Finally by incorporating a focus point to each posture more internal awareness develops. We will be looking at some of the main gazing points (drishtis) and practice their use within a vinyasa practice. The workshop will be mostly a practical session, with room for discussion/exploration of ideas.
