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.
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!
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
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.
