4 workshops with Gokul at 4/F Studio:
Hip Opening workshop
Saturday May 20th 9:30am – 12pm
The stress and activity of everyday life can often cause us to habitually move in certain ways and be in positions that lead to tightness and discomfort of our hips. In this workshop, we will focus on yoga asanas (postures) that will help release the tightness, tension, and pain in this area of our body.
Arm Balance Workshop
Saturday May 20th 3:00pm – 5:30pm
Arm balances build focus and concentration and increase our body awareness and connectivity to the breadth. They work to cleanse the nervous system and exhilarate the body and mind. In this workshop we will play with the techniques that serve to lengthen and strengthen the muscles required to successfully find your balance whilst maintaining lightness in the body.
Inversions workshop workshop
Sunday May 21st 9:30am – 12pm
The inverted postures of yoga are some of the most beneficial yet intimidating of the asanas. You will be introduced to practice postures such as headstand, forearm stand, handstand, and more. You will be guided through alignment, technique, proper modifications, and feel how to develop the power in your core strength. Learn to use the wall, or a buddy, as a way to continue practicing inversions beyond this class.
Sunday May 21st 3:00pm – 5:30pm
Back bending isn’t all about the spine. This workshop will teach you what parts of the body need to open and what should soften. You’ll learn key sequencing to prepare the body for heart opening postures and how to modify them to work with your body giving you confidence to explore them in your own practice. We will find more space in your back bends whilst developing safe preparatory back bending skills that you can incorporate into your own practice.
