Toronto Yoga Conference and Show

Functional Yoga Anatomy Workshops in Vancouver

I will be presenting a weekend of exploratory workshops at Semperviva Yoga studio on October 13 and 14, 2018.  

Exploring Our Unique Hip Mechanics

Saturday October 13th 1:00 to 3:30pm

Join Kreg Weiss for this interactive yoga anatomy workshop that will explore the variability of design that can occur in our hip joints. Following an overview of foundational anatomy, we will examine how our hips can vastly differ in structure, biomechanics and overall ranges of motion, thus requiring us to establish an authentic approach in our individual yoga practices. We will examine how we need to shift away from traditional yoga aesthetics and discover alignment and posture variations that resonate with our unique design.  We will also discuss how working against our inherent range of hip motion can be problematic for other joints and how we can adapt our practices to flow with and out of the hips with an effective, yet nurturing approach.

This workshop is open to everyone: yoga teachers, wellness practitioners, and students. Enhance your personal yoga practice and strengthen your teaching skills with this workshop that will be made readily accessible regardless of experience.

Awakening Your Twists

Sunday October 14th 1:00 to 3:30pm

Join Kreg Weiss for this exploratory yoga workshop that will examine twisting yoga postures.  By understanding the functional design of the spine, we can more intuitively and mindfully invite space and movement into the trunk of the body.   Topics that will be covered:

*general anatomy of the spine

*functional design of the vertebra within the different curves of the spine that determines where we inherently have more or less twisting capacity

*overall body design and proportions that require us to return to the intention of ‘quality over quantity’

*considerations and techniques in supporting the SI joint in twists

*discussion on some of the ‘myths’ of twisting

This workshop is open to everyone: yoga teachers, wellness practitioners, and students. Enhance your personal yoga practice and strengthen your teaching skills with this workshop that will be made readily accessible regardless of experience.
