Intro to Vinyasa // Yoga for beginners | with Scott McDonald

Intro to Vinyasa // Yoga for beginners | with Scott McDonald

Vinyasa vin yäsə/: noun: 

  • movement between poses in yoga, typically accompanied by regulated breathing.
  • a method of yoga in which vinyasa movements form a flowing sequence in coordination with the breath.

Taking place in a warm, friendly and supportive studio environment, Scott will lead you through a 2.5 hour workshop stepping through the Vinyasa style of yoga.

Over the afternoon we will cover:

  • Body alignment fundamentals
  • Sun Salutations for Vinyasa Flow classes
  • A variety of standing, seated and lying postures
  • An introduction to yogic breath work

We will end the workshop with a deeply relaxing yoga nidra.

This workshop is designed for absolute beginners who might find the idea of attending a class intimidating. The pace of the workshop will be slow with plenty of opportunity for questions and exploration.

Yogis with an existing practice are also welcome – the workshop will provide an opportunity to reaffirm the foundation of their asana practice.

Cost £25

Yoga Stability - Getting Out of Our Own Way: The freedom of confinement takes you to the next place | with Meredith Cameron

Yoga Stability - Getting Out of Our Own Way: The freedom of confinement takes you to the next place | with Meredith Cameron

Yoga Stability is a practice that gives you insight and intelligence as to why certain yoga poses might feel amazing or certain yoga poses might hurt.

Learn information about particular injuries and aches and soothing them with stability tactics. Explore a handful of stability tactics that will change your game. We will kick old habits and rewire, as we give our organs the space and efficiency they need. It's all about feeling good.

We will:

  • Explore familiar yoga poses.
  • Break them down and relearn them with particular stability tactics.
  • Gather around and learn that we all have our own set of conditions to work with heaps of adjustments so that we can feel what it's like to be on our own symmetrical grid.

You begin to see and hear differently when you practice from a stable approach. Information is gathered, applied and your life begins to shift.

Getting Out of Our Own Way: The freedom of confinement takes you to the next place.

There's so much to do once you are in a pose. We will learn to get off of ourselves and get over ourselves. So often we sit in our joints and energy and information becomes stagnant. We then begin to use compensatory skills. In this workshop, we will instead, learn how to provide ourselves with proper insight and potential, enhance efficiency of our bodies, and bring our second nature forward (insight, intelligence, skill and technique).
A good yoga pose. A good relationship. It all has the same demand.

You begin to see and hear differently when you practice from a stable approach. Information is gathered, applied and your life begins to shift.

In this specific workshop we will be finding angles and talking about the differences of moving and setting up poses with bones versus muscles.

It's not about being too tight or too loose. Too flexible or too stiff. A shape is a shape and it all gets reconciled when form is formidable. You use something the proper way, and it will clean up. When a hand gets plugged in, a lung has the chance to open. This workshop is all about setting up familiar yoga poses in a more stable way.
