Weekend Asana Intensives with Hee Boon and Quan Qi
This intensive yoga programme spans four weekends and is designed to help you progressively deepen your practice. The classes are carefully tailored to enhance the strength and flexibility of your hips and spine, as well as build upper body strength and awareness for inversions.
The programme is designed to be progressive, building on foundational poses and gradually increasing in difficulty as students become more skilled and comfortable with the movements. This helps avoid injuries and allows you to develop your practice over time.
Each session begins with a gentle warm-up sequence to prepare the body for practice. The focus then shifts to a series of yoga poses that continue to build strength and mobility in the lower body. In the second part of the class, the instructors will guide you through inversions, including headstands, forearm stands, and handstands. Instructors will provide preparatory exercises and modifications to ensure that everyone can approach these poses safely and confidently. Partner work is included in this intensive as well, as it can be a helpful way to deepen stretches, build trust, and gain a greater understanding of one's own body in relation to others.
By the end of the programme, you can expect to have a deeper understanding of your body's capabilities, increased strength and flexibility in the spine and upper body, and a greater sense of relaxation and inner calmness. You will also learn new techniques for approaching challenging poses and how to incorporate these poses into your regular yoga practice.
Whether you are an intermediate or advanced practitioner, this intensive programme will help you elevate your yoga practice and take your skills to the next level. Come prepared to challenge yourself, learn, and grow in a supportive and inspiring environment.
