Tara and Dr Rob- Pranayama, chanting, Mysore Style Practice, Philosophy & of course… Anatomy
Saturday 13th & Sunday 14th November // 7-3pm // £120
We are delighted to be welcoming back Tara Mitra and Dr. Rob for an in-depth Weekend Workshop. These guys are extremely experienced and knowledgeable and this is a unique opportunity to learn from them in an intimate environment. They are also super friendly and teach in a traditional yet playful manner.
They will be helping us reinvent our asana practice by improving our understanding of anatomy. They will guide us through breathing practices, chanting and yogic philosophy so that we may also learn techniques they have picked up through decades of experience.
Dr. Rob and Tara will review the postures based on four spine positions in the Ashtanga sequence (Flexion, extension, lateral, twist).
They will also help us appreciate
- The regions of the spine, their movement and limitations
- The design of the spine and intervertebral discs
- Postural modifications that provide a safe and more accessible practice
- Common injuries (and how to avoid them)
