Join Colette Marie for Advanced Sun Salutations A & B, Sunday, December 2nd from 1:15–3:15pm.
 
This workshop is dedicated to perfecting the Art of Sun Salutations A & B, by incorporating proper breathing patterns, floating in and out of poses such as plank and forward bend, with the inclusion and introduction of pikes and handstands.

YOGA TEACHERS: This is a Continuing Education Course! You are encouraged to attend :)

What's it all about?

In this workshop you will learn how to incorporate proper breathing patterns into each move, virtually slowing down the flow, increasing the level of challenge and inviting longer inhalations and exhalations. Additionally, we will begin infusing Sun Salutations with floating into Chaturanga/Low Plank from Halfway Lift and forward into Halfway Lift/Forward Bend, and or float into a Pike and or into a Handstand then to Halfway Lift/Forward Bend poses. We will comb through the nuances and details of precisely executing Sun Salutations A & B as it is practiced in the Ashtanga Yoga System.

Why you should take this workshop:

This will be a great opportunity to learn the mechanical aspects and anatomical aspects of all the postures pertaining to Sun Salutation A & B, while also breaking down the sequential order of each and better understanding how the breath is used throughout the entirety of each. This workshop is open to all levels of practice.


During this 2 hour workshop we will learn:
• The body mechanics of inversions pertaining to Sun Salutations
• Practice body alignment in preparation for planks, pikes, float ins & outs
• How to modify and adapt each posture fully as they are expressed
• How to engage the right muscle groups and body connections
• How to sustain proper breathing control throughout for a more intense practice
