Workshops and Series

 

YOGA 101 

With Patricia Leduc
 
 

These workshops are aimed for people who practice yoga and who would like to understand the poses taught in our classes. The goal is to take the time to break down the asanas and really understand the alignment and muscle groups to activate in order to get comfortable and, most of all, to be able to breathe easily. This is something we don’t always have time for in a regular class.

 
Sunday 28th of April – 12:30pm to 2:30pm @ Mile-End Studio
Backbends

This workshop will go over spine extension poses, such as cobra, upward facing dog, grasshopper, bridge, wheel, bow, etc. We will see some notions that will help to make these poses safe and adapted to your body. We will also explore asymmetrical poses that combine the opening of the hips and the extension of the spine, such as dancer, pigeon and its variations. We will use tools such as the awareness of the body, the spine, the alignment, listening to your limits, and many others! You will be able to explore these tools for many other asanas.

1st workshop: Strengthen, sculpt and define your glutes

This functional training workshop will be divided in two parts:

The first part, in the form of a seminary, will display a full range of the main lower body forms such as the squat, the lunge and the different posterior chain exercices. We will break down the postures to understand each motor pattern, learn how to integrate the key elements of each form and maintain quality of execution with speed or a larger weight. A good opportunity to better your technique and optimize each movement.

The second part will be all about integration. We will put in practice the learned elements in the form of a high intensity interval training. Fun and sweat guaranteed!

2nd workshop: Balance, strength and definition of arms and shoulders
 
A yoga practice keeps us working on the same level when working with the upper body. Chaturanga, Upward Dog, Downward Dog, Handstand… All these motions make us push the floor away and put a strain on the anterior chain. In order to balance this, the workshop will mainly explore pulling motions. Through diverse strength and endurance exercices, we will target antagonist muscular chains of the shoulders, the back and the arms that will help develop a better upper body strength and will support your practice.

3rd workshop: Deep abdominal muscles stability and strength

The core is the keystone of good posture, back health and a better connection between the upper and lower body. No need for a six pack to develop strong abdominals. This third workshop of the series will touch on the strengthening and stability of deep abdominal muscles. Through diverse exercices and intelligent sequences that use bodyweight and props, we will directly target the core area. Be prepared to work harder, but better!

Biomechanics Training 25 HOURS

With Patricia Letendre and Jean-Paul Raphael

Griffintown

 

Patricia and Jean-Paul quickly developed a common passion for the structure and function of the human body. In line with the global movement seeking to combine physical practice and biomechanics, they unite their efforts to offer a training on the functional aspect of movement in asana and pranayama.

The goal of the training is to verbalize the existing links between the science of the human body and yoga. By giving tools to teachers and serious students, they seek to give them awareness of their impact on the body and its physical health. Because anatomy notions are often reserved to a fragment of the health field, they would like to make knowledge on the human body more accessible. The training will look into movement, anatomy and physiology and will apply them concretely on yoga, asanas and pranayama exercices.

Cosmic Flow: Astrology and Yoga

With Vanessa DL
Saturday 23rd of March @ Mile-End
 
 

In this workshop, we approach yoga from a different angle. If stars have an effect on our body and our psyche, then we can adapt our practice to harness these energies in a productive way.

End of March is the moment where we enter Aries sign, the zodiac first sign. In this 2 hour cosmic workshop, we will use the energy of the moment to practice and journaling. 

Apart from your usual yoga gear, you will need to bring a journal and a pen.
