Vinyasa Krama Workshop with Emily Lacy
Saturday, September 3rd 2:15pm-4:15pm
Saturday 3rd September
£ 25 / £20 early bird before 15th Aug
Join Emily for an exploration into the intricacies of a vinyasa practise.
Vinyasa is the unique linking of one asana to the next in an ordered conscious way.
Krama is the uninterrupted sequence of events from beginning to end.
The key components that make up a vinyasa practise will be covered including:
Breath (ujjayi, victorious breath)
Each element will be explored in detail teaching you how to cultivate awareness and mindfulness in the moment to moment changes which are always arising yet are often driven by a lack of consciousness. With practise habitual patterns of behaviour can be transformed allowing freedom to unfold.
This workshop is for beginners, experienced practitioners and teachers who wish to develop, refine and deepen their practise both on the mat and off the mat in their everyday lives.
