Workshops are special two-hour learning sessions which are usually on a Saturday afternoon. These interactive extended sessions allow students to learn more than ‘how’ but also ‘why’ we do certain things in yoga. Even better, they include a glass of granny’s homemade lemonade specially brewed for the session.

Please note there is a 7-day cancellation policy for workshops. Your spot is not confirmed until payment is made.

Session I:

6 November 2017   (Tuesday)

09.00-11.00

Understand the Shoulder Girdle Through Asana

Healthy shoulders make for better inversions and add more longevity to our practice. With the multiple downward dogs and chatarungas of your daily vinyasa practice, your shoulders can be vulnerable to injury over time. Learn how to use props and alignment cues to better understand how to stabilise your shoulders, helping you access other postures and prevent impingement. This workshop will start with a lecture pointing out the bones and muscles that make up the shoulder girdle and teach you how to move safely from your shoulder blades while protecting the vulnerable muscles like your rotator cuffs. We’ll then move into a shoulder-focused asana practice, which will include inversions and some backbends.

Session III:

7 November 2018 (Wednesday)

19.15-21.15

Healing Your Lower Back Through Yoga

Learn how to heal your low back through yoga postures that build strength in your legs and core to support your sacrum. The sacrum is the key to stability in the lower back. It is the fulcrum point in our bodies from which all movement happens. If the surrounding muscles are not stable, the ligaments and joints in the lower back will be stressed. In this workshop, you will learn about the muscles and bones surrounding the low back area and evaluate the standing poses and core exercises needed to build strength here. Hip openers and breath awareness adds to the healing by pacifying the low back so your students leave feeling free of low back pain and gain the tools to help them stay there!

What it’s about:

Are you an overworked and sleep-deprived mum who needs time off to take care of your body? Do you experience diastasis recti, sacral-iliac and lower back pain when you cough, sneeze or run? Do you experience uncomfortable sensations in the core or pelvic region when you exercise?

If you said ‘yes’ to any of these, start regaining control of your body and gain peace of mind. Germin, fresh from a Pelvic Floor intensive training is going to share at this workshop:
— ways to feel and restore pelvic floor and core control to provide optimal support for your body;
— at least three daily exercises that will improve your quality of life;
— breathing methods to make the body (and mind) feel lighter; and
— relaxation and meditation techniques to feel more energised.

Suitable for women of all ages.
