Project Description

Ekam Yoga Weekend Workshop, Castel Maggiore, Italy

Fearless Inversions
June 24th, Sat, 10:00am – 12:00pm
Going upside is scary, thrilling, frustrating… it requires technique, consistent practice and attention to detail in order to balance freely. I believe anyone has the ability to balance on their hands, forearms and head when given enough attention to these poses. Whether you’re starting to discover this family, you want to venture away from the wall but you’re too scared or you want to gain more control in your ‘press ups’ or transitioning in and out of them, this class will be filled with exercises, techniques, tips and much more to help you get ahead and beyond. Gain strength, knowledge, confidence and have a great time in the process. Let’s take flight, shall we?

Hip Openers: Conquering Eka Pada Sirsasana (Leg Behind The Head)
June 24th, Sat, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
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!

Spinal Fluidity And Easiness Into Backbends
June 25th, Sun, 10:00am – 12:00pm
This class intends to demystify the idea that backbends are hard or just for the gifted ones. Anyone can increase dramatically their spinal range of movement with the proper warm up, technique, breath work and visualization. Both effort and easiness into these poses should blend seamlessly for an ideal outcome. Come ready to break down some physical and mental walls (especially it you think ‘you can’t’!) and let’s shift our focus into what we CAN do and how to grow and deepen our backbend practice with intelligence and grace…. bendy spine, here we go!

Laterals And Splits
June 25th, Sun, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Laterals and splits are like peanut butter and jelly, a classic that always works. Lengthening, stretching, engaging your ‘side’ muscles will, among many other benefits, stabilize your inversions, deepen both your backbends and forward bends and make your arm balances more solid. Add splits to the mixture and you will give rise to a more solid overall practice. Planks, Side Planks, Visvamitrasana, Vasisthasana, Anantasana, all kinds of Splits and inversions using them will be attempted. Strengthening and stretching, yin and yan. Lots of learning and good times assured!!! No prerequisites required.
