AWAKE with CHELSEY KORUS
Sunday the 26th of August – 6pm to 7:30pm
Be reintroduced to your own limitless potential through energizing movement, breath work and centering of your mind. Begin grounding your intention with slow meditative movement to link your body with your breath. Continue with a dynamic intermediate flow of poses that will activate your glutes and deactivate your lower back. Conclude with supine opening poses, allowing yourself to be fully present with an open heart. Walk away feeling more expansive and truly awake then ever before.
Matt Phippen – 17th to 20th of August
Yoga is the love of my life. It’s my deepest motivation. It moves and drives the actions I take, and it lights up the lens through which I see the world. I love the precision of Iyengar, and the way in which it aligns the body. I appreciate equally the freedom and creativity Vinyasa offers, and the way Asana can become a dance once the poses are understood. I blend the two together, and offer an intelligent and fun experience. I am a constant learner and an avid student, and am always taking what I learn into what I teach.
Workshop: Shoulderstand and Headstand with Matt Phippen
18 Aout 2pm to 4pm – Mile End
King’s and Queen’s: an in-depth exploration of Headstand (the “king” pose) and Shoulderstand (the “queen” pose). Using a variety of different props to safely navigate these postures, this workshop will help you find proper mechanics and good technique. If you’re a teacher wanting new and intelligent ways to teach these postures and variations of them; or a serious student who has yet to feel truly comfortable in them, this is all for you.
