4 Workshops over the weekend
-JIVAMUKTI MASTERCLASS (€35)
Lizzie’s Jivamukti classes are challenging, thought provoking and fun, with music that will take you on a sweaty, heart-pumping journey. A two hours exploration of the Jivamukti method. Come and dive into the unique fusion of the 5 tenets, which form the foundation of Jivamukti Yoga: Ahimsa (non-violence), Bhakti (devotion), Dhyana (meditation), Nada (sound) and Shastra (reference to ancient yoga scriptures), set to a rigorous vinyasa practice. We will explore how the body’s natural patterns of flexion, extension and counter-torsion lead to more space in the body and more openness in the mind.
-EMBODIED YOGA AS FASCIAL FITNESS (€35)
Ever wonder what gives your body its shape? Fascia, the connective tissue that webs itself in and around the body, plays a major role. We can feel elastic and soft, or solid and glue-like, depending on our life’s experiences and how we manage our self in gravity over time. Fascia is what enables us to feel a connection from head to toe through our movement patterns, or to experience pulls of asymmetry. There is increasing evidence to suggest that ‘exercising’ the fascial web throughout the body is as important as cardio and muscular fitness. But what is fascial fitness? In this workshop we will explore the ‘how’ of movement patterns. Using yoga asana as a common language, We will amplify our awareness of the unique patterns that are held in our body that may contribute to a physical limitation, injury or even chronic pain. We will begin to explore fascial connections throughout the body and look at patterns of flexion and extension that open the fascial layers. Lastly, we will explore a new way of moving that will positively affect the fabric of the fascial system, increase overall health, strength and flexibility. This practice is intended for yoga practitioners with a curious mind. It is open to those with limitations, chronic pain and a desire to add depth and dimensionality to an embodied movement practice.
