Flow and Restore: A Vinyasa Yoga Masterclass with Joe Dwyer
A Balance of Effort and Surrender
Sunday 7th July 2pm-4:30pm
yogahaven Clapham, 63 Wingate square, SW4 0AF
This workshop will explore the concepts of abhyasa (effort) and vairagya (surrender) in the context of an uplifting vinyasa flow and relaxing restorative/yin-inspired practice. Creative, playful, and insightful vinyasa krama sequences will culminate in a number of iconic arm balances (e.g. crow and its variations) and inversions (e.g., pincha mayurasana and handstand). The restorative component of the practice will hold poses for extended periods of time in order to calm the body and the mind. The inclusion of pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation, and deep relaxation will ensure that you leave feeling refreshed as well as stronger. There will be a short kirtan (chanting session) at the end of the practice. An experience guaranteed to promote balance and harmony in body, mind, and spirit. This workshop is for all levels. It is suitable for those just beginning to cultivate an arm balancing practice and for those that are already frequent flyers on their hands.
This workshop will be your last chance to practice with Joe as he will be moving to the Netherlands.
