The mechanics of a misunderstood asana
Maybe the most ubiquitous and yet still mystifying of poses in the modern day yoga class, chaturanga has garnered quite the reputation. It’s a heat builder, it’s a strength based posture, it’s dangerous, it’s useless, it’s crucial, it’s what makes a vinyasa flow… It’s the shoulder shredder, the widow maker… Chaturanga can be a phenomenal opportunity for full body engagement, energetic unfolding and a physical manifestation of resolve and attention. Lets reclaim this shape and learn to work with, not around it. In this workshop we will break down the elements of a successful and healthy asana. We will learn the biomechanics of the shape, technical drills and warm ups, modifications and how to truly embody this complicated asana. Some movement, some discussion, lots of opportunity for questions and knowledge bombs.
‘Sensei’ Derek is an experienced bodywork and yoga teacher who’s study has lead him deep down the path of not only asana and movement, but of the mechanics and intricacies of the human body. As an anatomy teacher and structural bodyworker - incorporating traditional thai bodywork and structural integration practices - Derek has developed a passion for sharing the beauty of the physical form and helping others to see how through understanding we have the power to heal.
