12-Hour Immersion: Unlocking Advanced Practices and Healing Techniques with In-Depth Anatomical Study with Saumik Bera

27-28 April 2024 Pacific Place – Admiralty

This 12-hour immersion covers in-depth anatomical knowledge that is essential in deepening your yoga practice such as backbends. Key techniques will also be taught to rehabilitate your lower back and shoulders.

Workshop 1: Advanced Spinal Mobility with Spine Anatomy (suitable for all levels) - Sat, 27 April (9:30am-12:30pm)
Our spine, consisting of 33 vertebrae, is designed to bend, but each of us has unique flexion and extension capabilities. This workshop delves deep into spine anatomy, providing tools for a safe and profound backbend practice. Tailored for practitioners at all levels, especially those facing limitations or injuries, yoga teachers can also benefit by creating safer practices for themselves and their students.

Workshop 2: Advanced Practice for Lower Body (suitable for all levels) - Sat, 27 April (2pm-5pm)
Focused on the lower body, this workshop explores the connection between hamstrings, adductors, and gluteal muscles. Using mind-body engineering techniques, participants will learn advanced asanas with a keen understanding of their unique body anatomy. Suitable for all levels, this workshop is a must-attend for those seeking to deepen their practice.

Workshop 3: Mind-Body Therapy for Back Pain - Sun, 28 April (9:30am-12:30pm)
This workshop unfolds in three dimensions: A) Understanding the anatomy, B) Grasping your body's unique anatomy, and C) Recognising connections in the body’s engineering system. Saumik will guide participants on effective and swift self-healing techniques for back pain. Several types of back pain, slip discs, sciatica, scoliosis, degeneration, and others will be covered.

Workshop 4: Mind-Body Therapy for Shoulders - Sun, 28 April (2-5pm)
Specifically designed for those experiencing shoulder pain, tightness, or discomfort, this interactive workshop explores shoulder functional anatomy. Participants will learn to identify and address pain, fostering a therapeutic and enjoyable experience. Practical techniques and knowledge gained can be applied for a safe and pain-free practice in the future. Saumik will focus on shoulder injuries, frozen shoulders, ligament compression, and imbalance of shoulder strength and mobility.

Saumik Bera

Born in the yoga-rich land of India, Saumik began his practice at the age of 5 and started teaching yoga since 2001. He has called Singapore home and started teaching there since 2005.

Saumik’s passion for teaching led him to address a gap in the market – a deeper understanding of human body anatomy. Over the last decade, he has immersed himself in the study of human anatomy and conducted research through cadaver dissection. As a strong advanced practitioner who won the World Yoga Championship three years in a row from 2005-2007, Saumik spent a significant time in Singapore regularly teaching and conducting workshops and courses. Aside from doing his therapy, Saumik occasionally travels to Japan for teaching and Hong Kong for special private sessions.

Specialising in human alignment and anatomy, he believes in tailoring practices to individual body types. His teachers include Aadil Palkiwala (Pioneer Teacher of Guruji Iyengar), Paul Grilley (creator of Yin Yoga) and Dr. Joe Dispenser.

To deepen his understanding of human body anatomy, Saumik has undertaken annual dissections for the past decade, aiding individuals in recovering from pain and injuries through one-on-one and group training.
