Hatha Yoga Workshop with Hari Om
In typical yoga classes, time is the biggest constraint that prevents us from delving deeply into core concepts of Hatha Yoga such as Asana and Pranayama. This workshop provides an opportunity to deconstruct Yoga postures and breathing techniques aided by basic study of anatomy and postural alignment.
Each day of the workshop deals with a different topic or perspective of the practice. Day 1 will focus on basic poses and variations along with pranayama and chanting. Day 2 will focus on Sun Salutations, Headstand variations along with basic anatomy and yoga nidra. Day 3 will focus on strengthening and balancing postures including arm balances, mantra chanting and yoga nidra. This allows students who can only join single sessions to still be able to gain deeper knowledge of that day’s chosen subject.
Daily topic-related handouts will be given to students along with detailed explanation of the poses that are being practised. Students will discover various options for the same poses ranging from beginner to intermediate levels. Proper use of props will also be explained for students who need such assistance.
