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 20th of January – 12pm to 2pm @ Griffintown Studio
Sun Salutation A

The workshop on January 20th will look into Sun Salutation A and its modifications. This is a sequence that is practiced many times in a class and which is important to adapt to our own body and our practice.

Sunday 24th of February – 12:30pm to 2:30pm @ Mile End Studio

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!

Saturday 26th of January – 2pm to 4pm @ Mile-End

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!

The Pillars and Our Relationship to Gravity

With Patricia Letendre and Jean-Paul Raphael
Saturday 2nd of February – 2pm to 4pm @ Griffintown

 

Come explore the concept of the pillars, which are our anchoring, and their connection to gravity. This geeky workshop is open to everyone who desires to better their understanding of yogic movement and acquire tools for better body intelligence and proprioception.

We will create a lab to develop a good pillar and understand how to work on it efficiently. We will explore safe progressions through increased stability, a search for efficient movement as well as smoother transitions.

Biomechanics Training 75 HOURS

With Patricia Letendre and Jean-Paul Raphael

Griffintown

 

Training divided in 3 modules of 25 hours each for a total of 75 hours. Learn to tie the science of the human body with the yogic movement! 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.

1 Module: 480$*
For the 3 Modules: 1200$*

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.

MEMBER: 25$
REGULAR: 35$
