Anna Ashby will be offering a unique series of workshops each limited to 18 students. In this smaller group format, a learning environment with detailed instruction will refine and hone the practice allowing for precision and subtlety of experience. Attention to alignment and detail will encourage a more conscious and considered approach the lends itself to going deeper.

This workshop teaches how to align ‘the girdles’ so that poses become artful expressions of integration and awareness. The pelvic and shoulder girdles provide a unique means for adjusting the spine - the thigh bones becoming the steering wheels of the pelvis; the shoulder blades the steering wheels of the shoulder girdle - both involve actions of rotation that can align the spine. When the two girdles fine tune the actual positioning of the spine, the action of extension can then enliven the form so that it becomes a clear channel for the flow of subtle energy and the pose an integrated expression of grace.

 Category of poses: a range of poses from the different categories of asana with meditation

The workshop is ideal for teachers, teachers in training and experienced students who wish to reflect on the architecture of poses and sequencing furthering their understanding of modern postural yoga. The format allows for dialogue and questions.

Students are expected to have a mature practice of 3+ years. If you have questions about suitability of level please contact
