Join visiting teacher Chris De Vilbiss for a weekend of vinyasa workshops at classes at Sterling! These offerings will help you refine your vinyasa practice, particularly in finding strength needed to progress in arm balances and tips on preventing common yoga injuries, and provide you breathing techniques that will specifically benefit your hot yoga and vinyasa practice.
Shoulder Mechanics/Vinyasa Yoga with Arm Balances
Saturday, June 30: 1 p.m. – 3:45 p.m.
Learn to stabilize your shoulders and release tension around your neck, chest and arms in preparation for postures that bear weight on your hands or arms. Unlock the secrets to cure or prevent most yoga-related aches of wrists, elbows, shoulders and neck in this anatomy-rich workshop!
Immediately following, put what you’ve learned into practice in a 75-minute class with emphasis on shoulder and arm alignment for optimal strength for inversions and arm balances. All levels welcome!
Vinyasa Yoga/Pranayama Breathing Workshop
Sunday, July 1: 11:15 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Start with an invigorating vinyasa flow with emphasis on standing balance and hip extension, specifically lengthening and strengthening your psoas. Suitable for all levels.
Learn how to regulate mind activity with controlled breathing to evenly distribute energy throughout your nervous system in the pranayama workshop immediately after. Techniques covered will be ideal for the hot yoga or hot vinyasa practitioner. Some yoga experience is suggested to attend, but all levels are welcome!
