About the Workshop
Have you always struggled in your Vinyasa practice or feel that you are constantly losing control and balance?
In this workshop, we will explore the many different transitions applicable in a Vinyasa practice. How do we gain more control moving from one posture to another? How do we maintain stability while we practise?
During each session, we will discuss the muscle engagement that is required for certain poses and the technique required to shift from one posture to another. At the end of the workshop, you will have a better understanding of the various aspects of Vinyasa practice and truly enjoy your practice.
This workshop is suitable for all levels, including beginners who have always been curious about Vinyasa practice. It will also benefit regular practitioners who are keen to understand how transitions should be performed safely in order to avoid injuries.
Schedule & Description
Session 1: Elements of a Vinyasa Practice
17 April 2021 (9:00am to 12:30pm)
We will first understand what the various elements are that constitutes a vinyasa practice. This includes most importantly your breath, sun salutations, common poses such as downward facing dog, plank, chaturanga and upward facing dog, etc. In order to dive into the various transitions, we will first explore the variations of some common vinyasa options given by teachers.
Areas of focus include:
- Detailed explanation of poses in Surya Namaskar A and B
- Exploring transitions such as jumping back and forth during Surya Nasmaskar
- Applying correct technique from lunges to warrior series or any other linking poses
- How to connect the breath with every transition
Participants will be able to ask any questions and to practise all the transitions being explained.
Session 2: Exploring More Challenging Transitions
18 April 2021 (9:00am to 12:30pm)
We will be building on the first session in terms of techniques applied. We will start to explore other transitions of poses involving balances, hip openings and backbends. We will discuss more details relating to muscle engagement required to make those challenging transitions and how to stay focused while maintaining your consistent breath.
Areas of focus include:
- Balancing transitions E.g. Trikonasana (Triangle Pose) to Ardha Chanrasana (Half Moon Pose), High Lunge to Warrior 3, etc.
- Backbend transitions E.g. Downward facing dog to Camatkarasana (wild thing)
- Basic arm balances, how to get in and out of the pose (Bakasana Crow Pose, Side Crow)
We will close the workshop with a full Vinyasa practice to incorporate everything taught in both sessions.
