Hong Kong Workshop with Erica Tenggara
Workshops detail Day 1 - 20 May "Hips, Flips & Twists" - 12:00-14:30 Hip and hamstring flexibility is usually the initial yogi hurdle we try to overcome when trying to "touch our toes" but forward folding goes so much more beyond having open hamstrings. When combined with opening the hips and stretching into deeper twists we allow the whole body to work towards folding/flipping in and around itself creating space and freedom. Should you be able to touch your toes, do the splits, put your leg behind the head or not, this class regardless will leave you feeling longer and maybe a little taller too.
Fly to Float - 16:00-18:30 Arm balances are tricky nonetheless but once understood they can create a sense of internal strength, power allowing us to open our minds and bodies beyond our known possibilities, plus they're fun to do! We'll focus on both static and transitional postures/flows by covering techniques and tricks to not only overcome your fears but level up your arm balancing through transitions helping you find that "float" in your practice.
Day 2 - 21 May Full Circle - 12:00-14:30 As much as we fold forward in yoga a balanced practice is not complete without bending over backwards. For most yogis back bending is often literally "a pain in the back" so in this practice we'll learn how to effectively and efficiently create access not only through the entire spine but also the entire front body from the legs, chest, throat and shoulders to allow for deeper and safer back bends. Whether you love back bends or hate them this class will challenge you to literally open up (in the best of ways) and find new space both physically and internally.
Root to Rise (Inversions) - 16:00-18:30 There's nothing more terrifying than having your world turned upside down, but overtime going upside down can start to feel like the right side up! It all starts with our base, when the foundation is strong the rest will follow. As we learn to build trust in ourselves this becomes the catalyst to the process of how inversions can restore our mind, body & heart. This class is suitable for anyone, whether you can or cannot invert options will be provided.
