I'm excited to be returning to House of Yoga, Waterford, this coming October for a weekend yoga immersion!
The schedule for the weekend will be as follows:
Friday 19th October 19:00 - 20:30 PM
The Full-Body Reboot: A Complete and Balanced Practice.
In this full-body extended vinyasa class, we take the time to work through the entire body - approaching each posture as way to come to a deeper understanding of yourself Physically. Exploring the anatomy + biomechanics of postures as we move, you’ll gain deeper understanding and insight into postures in relation to your unique body and mind.
We will breathe, we will move, we will twist, we will flex, we will extend, we may even float or fly…
This class will activate, stabilise and invigorate - as well as nurture, and allow time for release with a sense of ease as the practice draws to a close.
Join us on the mat for a fully body and mind experience.
Saturday 20th October
The Inversion Immersion Day: Part 1 + 2
This day long immersion focuses on cultivating and developing the foundations of a solid and consistent straight handstand. All levels are welcome - from complete novice, to more experienced practitioner.
The day is split into two sections (AM + PM), they are as follows:
Part One: Hands as Feet - Learn to Turn Your World Upside Down. 10:00 AM - 13:00 PM
The aim of this workshop is to bring you a deeper understanding of the relevant anatomy and alignment principles of a handstand.
With a focus on the five key focus points of an inversion, and through practical experience of various skills and drills, this workshop will help you to obtain a solid foundation from which to build your inversions practice - leading to a more solid and consistent Inversion practice, and helping you to find balance upside down with ease.
Part two: Discovery & Balance - building strength, developing mobility, & discovering balance for your Handstand. 14:00PM - 17:00PM.
The aim of this workshop is to bring a deeper understand of how we develop both strength + stability and also Mobility for our inversions practice. After gaining a solid understanding of the foundations and building blocks of a handstand, this workshop builds on the skills and drills developed in the previous workshop.Through exploring relevant applied anatomy, theory, and lots of practical experience - this workshop will teach you how to find and maintain balance and stability when on your hands – leading to more consistency and confidence in your inversions practice.
Sunday 21st October
Mindful Mobility - 10:00 AM - 13:00PM
Starting at the toes and working up to your head, this workshop will cover an array of different stretching techniques. In this workshop, Dan will take you through a full body stretching experience. Incorporating and educating you in various stretching techniques and modalities. This workshop aims to give you a deeper insight into your own body, and how to work with it in a more mindful way. Building a map of the tension areas in your body, and then learning to work with them.
Built from the awareness that each and every human body is different, we have different habitual and holding patterns that effect our bodies and the way we move. Through experimenting with various postures & stretching techniques, you will begin to understand your own body more – where you hold tension, and where you have blockages and limitations.
Not only will you become more mindful of your body in this workshop, you will learn how you can release that tension to create a little more ease in your body - and how through this knowledge we can begin exploring the progressions of postures such as Hanumanasana (Front Split), and Urdvha Dhanurasana (Bridge) and of course many more.
‘Twist out the Tension - Free the breath and unravel the spine.’ 14:30 - 17:00.
This workshop focuses on releasing tension in the muscles that restrict our breathing, and that limit the movements of our spine - the hips, the shoulders and chest, and the side body. It also explores some methods of pranayama, with a deeper look into how each of the practices effects the internal systems of the body.
Join me on the mat for this intelligently sequenced and anatomically conscious fun and explorative workshop.
