Thursday April 26, 6 – 9pm (Workshop)
BRINGING INTELLIGENCE AND EMPOWERMENT TO OUR SHOULDER MOVEMENTS:
Our shoulders are the most mobile joints in the body and greatly benefit from enhanced stabilization and a sense of precise engagement. This functional yoga anatomy workshop will explore how we can be more effective in moving (and loading) through our shoulders along with expanding our awareness of key stabilization structures.

Key topics to be covered:
*overview of shoulder/shoulder girdle anatomy and mindful movement mechanics
*aspects of shoulder impingement & methods to reduce the onset of impingement conditions
*exploration of shoulder blade (scapula) and collar bone (clavicle) stabilization in various yoga postures and the effects of destabilization
*variations in bone structure that require us to consider (and honour) potential limitations in range of movement and empower us to find the authentic inherent shape and positioning in our postures

This will be a highly active workshop with ample time to apply and play with applications and techniques in a wide range of postures.  Graphics and visuals will be presented during the webinar and will be made available after the workshop upon request.  This event is open to everyone: yoga teachers, wellness practitioners, and students. Enhance your personal yoga practice and strengthen your teaching skills noting that all of the anatomy content will be made readily accessible regardless of experience.


Friday  April 27, 11am – 1pm (Master Class)

THE ART OF FUNCTIONAL SPIRALS: 
Join Kreg Weiss for this exploratory masterclass workshop and full practice where we will journey through aspects of rooting, rotating, and engaging into fundamental lines of energy and stabilization.  Through these defined spiralling actions, our postures receive an awakening of purpose, effectiveness, and functionality.  We will give particular attention to Hasta Bandha (hand locks) and Pada Bandha (foot locks).  This event will start with a short yoga anatomy workshop examining the action and effects of conscious spiralling and then carry these applications into a moderate to intermediate-level Hatha Flow.

>> This class builds off the topics discussed in the Thursday evening workshop – a great complement if you can attend both!


Friday  April 27, 2.00 – 5.00pm (Workshop)

SKILLFUL & MINDFUL SPINAL MOVEMENT: 
Join Kreg Weiss for this interactive yoga anatomy workshop that will explore the fundamental aspects of moving mindfully and holistically through the primary movements of the spine – forward bends, back bends and twists.

Major topics that will be covered:
*general anatomy and mechanics of the spine
*key structural features (bone, muscle, and other connective tissue) that can promote or generate limitations in range of motion
*exploration of possible variations in structure that can predispose our inherent movement capacity
*recommendations on how to move more intuitively and intelligently into the spine with an emphasis on understanding sensations versus striving for depth (that is often driven by aesthetics)

This will be a highly active workshop with ample time to apply and play with applications and techniques in a wide range of postures.  Graphics and visuals will be presented during the webinar and will be made available after the workshop upon request.  This event  is open to everyone: yoga teachers, wellness practitioners, and students. Enhance your personal yoga practice and strengthen your teaching skills noting that all of the anatomy content will be made readily accessible regardless of experience.
