Carmen Aguilar Weekend Workshop 1: 27- 30 Sep 2018

Backbend the eternal fountain of youth
A bendy spine is a young spine but backbends are not just about the back. A healthy shoulder mobility is necessary to accommodate those degrees of folding. The neck and front of our bodies, especially from the shoulder girdle to the low ribs, have tremendous range and can amplify and help our back’s work. Unfortunately, that area is heavily guarded, protected, sometimes shut down due to our lifestyles. Come turn back the clock, decompress, lift some weight off your shoulders, reset and open your heart and mind to new possibilities. Learn stretches that’ll help you in your daily life as well as your personal practice and leave rejuvenated and transformed. No prerequisites required. This class is for all levels and degrees of flexibility (or lack of!).

Potions for deeper Hip Rotations
Any ‘leg behind the head’ pose IS achievable if we work that external hip rotation consistently. Come ready to leave old preconceptions and beliefs behind of ‘no it’s not possible’ or ‘my hips are tight’, and enter a new world where your hips can open like a flower in blossom. This class will set a good foundation so you can take the practice/tips/ideas home with you and digest them more, deconstruct and explore other alternatives. Hip openers are thrilling, lively and full of possibilities. Often, we put so much pressure on ourselves, that our hips lock up like a treasure chest. Let’s find the key, explore some together and leave inspired for more!
Sep 29th, Saturday, 12:30pm-2:30pm
Transitions or the Art of linking smoothly
This class will approach a number of asanas (standing, sitting, inverted, arm balances…) and, more importantly, will help you figure out ways to link them effortlessly and safely. A good sequence (Vinyasa Krama), in the right order, can get you easily to places you haven’t been before. When you use smooth transitions to tie it up, it can feel like moving meditation, serene and quiet or, it can build momentum, intensity and difficulty. Get ready to experiment both ends of the spectrum, always moving seamlessly in and out of poses, and work on your ‘floating’ skills while we do that. No prior flying experience necessary…. just the desire to do so!!
Sep 29th, Saturday, 3:00pm-5:00pm
Get ready to purge, cleanse body and mind from unnecessary junk stored and come out rejuvenated and renovated. Twists are a great tool to help us do so and they’re also incredibly versatile, with an enormous amount of possibilities and applications. Whether it’s sitting, standing, doing an arm balance or going upside down, when we throw a spinal twist into the mix, it makes things a lot more interesting. Come prepared to work hard, have a great time and leave feeling years younger. Some euphoria might arise as a side effect, beware!
Sep 30th, Sunday, 12:30pm-2:30pm
Tip toeing into Scorpions
Not your average yoga class, this backbend one will dare to trade into waters you might not do on your own, feel intimidated, lost or simply have never thought of. After a thorough warm up and having covered other backbends, some time will be dedicated to studying Scorpions, how to do them safely, properly so we can incorporate them into our personal practice. This class is for all levels and you don’t need an ‘advanced’ practice (whatever that means) to participate. You’ll need, however, an open mind, ready to try and willing to see what happens. Stiffness, or being able to work around our personal difficulties, is a big part of the learning process. You don’t want to miss out on that! Come and explore…
