Build Your Foundation - The Standing Postures
Through detailed analysis and fun partner work you will feel how your legs are your connection to the power center in your pelvis and to the Earth below.

When done with healthy alignment these humble series of postures build your foundation, connection to the ground and sense of inner awareness. In this workshop learn how the structural foundation for forward bends, inversions and deep hip opening work is set up in the standing series of Ashtanga yoga. Gain a new found appreciation for this foundational work of yoga!
Workshop 2: 10 May (Sat), 1pm – 3pm
Fly like a Bird: All About Bakasana
Take the time to master the core strength, stable shoulder girdle and steady mind needed to master Bakasana position. Translated into English as the Crane Posture, Bakasana unlocks the key principles of strength for all other arm balances. Start off with the easiest version of Bakasana and challenge yourself by trying some of the hardest versions of Bakasana like Eka Pada Bakasana A. Jump back and jump into Bakasana and learn how to transition in and out of handstand from the posture. Don’t let Bakasana trick you into thinking it’s too easy--come and learn how to be strong enough to truly fly like a bird.
