UNLOCK, RELEASE

In this workshop we will learn how to warm up, condition, mobilize and release tension in the neck, back, wrists and shoulders.

We will bring awareness to correct hand alignment, counterbalance weaknesses by implementing strengthening techniques, increasing shoulder mobility and stability and wrist flexibility to help alleviate and prevent injuries. We will cover all the basic elements to improve your upper body strength, flexibility and stability so that you can progress in your practice. There will be many conditioning exercises, alignment cues, partner drills, restorative work, and more.

Open to all Levels

 

ANTI GRAVITY

Break through the boundaries of your practice and experience the realm of anti-gravity!

In this workshop we will work on reducing the fear of going upside down, develop an understanding of the exercises and drills to help us build strength and stability in inversions. Most importantly, we will learn that floating is not just about strength and brute force; it’s about technique.

In a safe and fun environment we will test new heights, learn to drop safely, find control, but more importantly, you will venture towards the yogic Holy Grail; the Secret to Floating.

We will spend time learning many basic techniques used to find that initial press as well as fun alternative for arm balances. Whether you a seasoned practitioner or you are completely new to being upside down this workshop will support you on your journey. Inversions are a great place to build trust upside down, while practicing patience and playfulness.

Open to All Levels

SAFE & COMFORTABLE BACKBENDS

Learn to backbend with ease and freedom, decompress your spine and feel rejuvenated. Whether you are a backbend lover or hater, this is the workshop for you.

The first two hours will be dedicated to learning strengthening techniques for the core, legs and bandhas in order to create a stable and safe base for your backbend practice.

The second part will concentrate on increasing the flexibility of the shoulders, chest, hip flexors and spine to deepen your backbend. We will learn to use our breath and fundamental alignment techniques to achieve a healthy, deep beautiful backbend. We will break down the different components of the backbend and safely explore various variations of these wonderful poses.

Open to All Levels

 

DHARMA YOGA WORKSHOP

This workshop is an introduction to Dharma Yoga, a practice created by Master Sri Dharma Mittra. Dharma Yoga is a traditional practice of Hatha Raja Yoga which includes cleansing techniques, breathing, concentration, meditation, postures and chanting.

One of the great benefits of Dharma Yoga is the variety of positions, which help to increase flexibility and at the same time help open the chest, allowing us to better connect with our fourth chakra (Anahata chakra), the heart chakra.

We will start from the simplest positions and arrive to the most complex, always with full respect for our own capabilities. We will find the perfect balance between effort and abandonment.

During the workshop we will propose variations and modifications to make the practice accessible to everyone, creating an atmosphere of union in which students will be able to realize their infinite potential.

Open to all levels

 

Ambra Vallo is a former prima ballerina in the Royal Ballet of Birmingham. She approached yoga during a healing journey from an injury and over the years fell in love with the more spiritual parts of the practice. Once she retired from dance, she was able to focus more on her passion and deepen the practice of Ashtanga and Vinyasa.
