Vinyasa Lab: Form, Function, and Flow
Join master teacher Rocky Heron for a rich and informative afternoon of study exploring the art of teaching vinyasa yoga. You do not need to compromise biomechanics or progressive logical sequencing for creativity in vinyasa. These features work together in harmony, as Rocky will adeptly demonstrate. Throughout this training, we focus on pranayama and the effective use of breath as your primary source of support. We learn to craft intelligent, effective, creative sequences as we study form, foundation, and precision. We will dissect and analyze vinyasa techniques and strategies suitable for every level of student.
Topics covered include:
· Pranayama and Bandha
· Crafting Intelligent, Effective & Creative Vinyasa Sequences
· Weaving Form, Foundation in Precision into the Flow
· Teaching Transitions
· Learning New & Healthy Biomechanical Approaches to Vinyasa
· Pacing & Pulse: the Dance of Holding & Flowing
· Sustainable Sequencing
· Beginner Strategies
· Intermediate Strategies
· Considering how to Develop Advanced Sequences
Step Into the Flow:
7PM to 9PM (2 Hours)
In this playful and informative vinyasa practice you will stoke your inner fire, wring yourself out, move your energy, and purify your system. Expect potent, breath-based movement, sun salutations, arm balances, standing pose repetitions, and backbends, all inked together with creative and accessible transitional strategies. Be prepared to sweat, strengthen and play!
The Art of Flying:
10AM to 12:30PM (2.5 Hours)
The session will focus upon the deconstruction of difficult hand balancing poses and inversions to make them approachable for all levels. Every “tricky” pose is made up of other, more accessible poses, many of which you are likely already familiar with. Through exploration of shoulder and core mechanics, as well as careful consideration and the layering of specific poses and actions, you will learn the necessary skills to launch into graceful power and success around these asanas. All levels welcome.
2:30PM to 5PM (2.5 Hours)
In this quiet, contemplative practice, we will dive into inner depths while practicing forward bends, hip openers and twists, pranayama and meditation. In this deep exploration of hip openers and seated asanas, you will cultivate the seeds of unfolding and nurture them through the potency of mindful, skillful practice. Ground yourself and facilitate alignment with the source of your bliss, love, and inner sweetness.
Bend, Don’t Break:
10AM to 12:30PM (2.5 Hours)
This workshop will build upon the pose work of previous sessions, and launch into a progressive sequence toward back bends. We will dive deeply into our bodies, minds and hearts to seek the progress of expansion and truth in limitation. Rocky will provide pose stages, prop work and modifications for all levels. Come ready to learn more about your body, work steadily, and invigorate the potent energy of your heart.
