Yoga Foundations with Andy Gill
2.00 - 4.30pm
In this workshop Andy Gill, a yoga practitioner for over 25 years, will explore the basic movements and postures common to all yoga styles in a simple and accessible way.
All of us bring habitual movement patterns to yoga when we come to the mat, and transferring some of these to the practice of yoga can result in pain or injury if continued. Understanding how to move in a healthy, safe and optimal way will enable you to realise the full benefit that the practice of yoga offers us all.
In this workshop Andy will explore the following:
- The importance of breathing
Sun salutations and vinyasa style movements
Down dog and up dog
Safe approaches to forward bending and how to work with tight hamstrings
Developing shoulder mobility/flexibility as well as stability
Approaches to hip opening
Approaches for key yoga asanas such as Trikonasana (Triangle)
Flexibility vs stretching
This is an experiential workshop in which Andy will share information and demonstrate to give you the opportunity to practise and experience these approaches for yourself.
As a teacher and a practising life coach, Andy understands and respects the needs of the individual student, placing their needs at the heart of his teaching. He brings an informed and non-dogmatic approach to teaching Ashtanga yoga whilst remaining consistent and true to the traditional method. The workshop is suitable for students new to yoga, but he will share information that will benefit students with more experience too.
