Yoga and Movement Workshop:
Mysore classes Saturday and Sunday morning (for those with an existing Ashtanga practice).
Afternoon workshops – Saturday and Sunday
In these two workshops Mark will present his ongoing research into how to integrate the latest developments and innovations of the movement world with the yoga practice.
Subjects covered will be an experiential understanding of the bio-mechanics of all the major joint complexes of the body and how to develop a daily joint mobility routine that will not only directly translate to your asana practice, but it will enhance and transform your practice and your life.
We will look at the differences between passive and active flexibility and learn how to move actively and build more end-range control in common yoga postures. This knowledge is one of the keys for longevity and injury prevention, and for the development of true strength and mobility.
There will be partner work, locomotion and capoeira inspired movement games that are not only fun and great learning tools – but they fit perfectly with the asana practice.
Workshop 1 – Focus: hips and arm balances.
Workshop 2 – Focus: backbends
