Madrid, Spain

€ 140.00

These three workshops will help you access the deeper layers of your body and nervous system that are vital in experiencing connectivity, relaxation and aliveness in your body.

Both days will centre around an all level yoga practice with relaxation, breath work and meditation. 

The workshop is accessible and recommended to students of all levels and yoga practitioners who want to learn new patterns of movement.

It can be of particular interest to yoga teachers and students wanting to learn more about the effect of the psoas and pelvic alignment in yoga, to people with some pain in the lower back or pelvis zone and in general for those interested in improving their health and emotional state through yoga.

It is highly recommended to take all the workshops together, if possible.

The course qualifies for Yoga Alliance continuing education hours.

Saturday March 30, 2019: 10.30-13.30 - It’s all about the base: psoas and core

The psoas muscle lies deep within your pelvis, is part of your core and greatly influences the alignment of your pelvis and the engagement of your other core muscles. Feeling the pelvis, releasing the psoas and activating the core is the key to optimal pelvic alignment and stability in yoga and in your daily movements.

 In this yoga workshop, you will explore movement and stability in the pelvis, understand how the psoas and abdominal core muscles work together and see how tightness in the psoas will have a different effect on the pelvis and core stability and its influence in the asanas.

Saturday March 30, 2019: 15.30-18.30 - Yoga and the Psoas, the Vagus and the Nervous system

The practice of yoga brings us awareness of our bodies. It helps us to move, stretch and feel. We connect the breath to movement or actions and brings about a sense of freedom, stability, peace and aliveness.

But sometimes our bodies react in an unexpected way, or particular thoughts or emotions pop up in our awareness; resistance or fear may show up without any particular reason or cause in our yoga practice.

Most people have some form of unresolved trauma stuck in their bodies. When this happens, it is likely that the yoga is triggering a trauma that is stuck in our body.

Yoga has many practices that can help to feel and release tension and prevent the body from going into a state of fight or flight.

In this workshop, you will learn through yoga and movements how to consciously release the pelvis and psoas, and tension connected with the psoas. You will practice and see how breath work influences the nervous system and how connection plays a role in keeping the body out of a state of defence.

Sunday March 31, 2019: 10:30-13:30 - Pelvic Power and Bliss – workshop specially designed for women

Your pelvis is the true centre of your being.

It is the centre of your physical body, transferring the weight from your torso into your legs. It is also the home of your base chakra and the second chakra, which are linked to your feeling of relaxation and delight. Your pelvis is a container for energy. When this energy gets stuck, it will literally pull your body out of balance and cause misalignment in your body and movement.

Many nerves are located in your pelvis. It is the place of intuition, power and bliss.

In this workshop, you will get a taste of how to move with pelvic fluidity in movement, how to connect to your feminine flow and how you can relax your entire body from your pelvis.

You can expect a juicy yoga asana practice, breath work and a pelvic meditation that you will be able to introduce in your classes or your practice. It will make you feel alive, vibrant with energy and at home in your pelvis.
