In this four-part practical workshop – open to all levels – Glen Butcher teaches asana from every angle, including:• how breath in the subtle body shapes and supports the actions of the physical body
We'll start by turning our attention inwards to the breath and bandhas (internal locks), activating our energetic center from which heat radiates and prana extends to the fingers and toes. Also learn different ways to use the breath to balance the demands of a particular asana.Saturday 4:00–6:30pm Stay on track
Alignment in one part of the body ensures free flow of energy in other areas. Learn to correct imbalances, and prevent and heal injuries, by finding the sweet spot of ease and effort. Anatomy will be presented in simple terms and general alignment techniques applied with clear results.Sunday 12:30–3:00pm Move it or lose it
Your next asana is only as good as the transition from the last. Vinyasa keeps the practice alive! Learn to take knowledge gained and energy earned in an asana and pay it forward. Bandhas are key and we’ll unlock their potential.Sunday 4:00–6:30pm Take it to the limit
Concluding with a clinic in which students are encouraged to present a pose that causes them problems. Much can be learned by observing a teacher helping a student. Right instruction – verbal, hands-on and/or demo – can correct wrong actions and help you work wisely to your edge.
