HAPPY HIPS & HAMSTRINGS

DATE: Saturday 29th October, 3.30-5.30pm

INVESTMENT: 2500LKR

Designed for those with tight hips and hamstrings, this workshop will emphasise on creating space and softness into the back of the legs and the areas around the hips. 

We will work through a series of poses that are held for a long time, approaching all the movements and their internal responses from a place of intention, observation and kindness. We will explore the different effects of tightness in the hips and legs on the rest of the body to gain a deeper understanding of this beautiful meditative practice.

Yin Yoga is a more passive form of yoga as opposed to the more dynamic forms of yoga such as Vinyasa Flow. Instead of focusing on lengthening and strengthening the muscles, we focus on the joints and the deeper connective tissues like the fascia and the ligaments.

SAFE YOGA PRACTISE/ IYENGAR YOGA WORKSHOP

DATE: Saturday 22nd October, 3-5pm

INVESTMENT: 2500LKRVery often after the yoga lesson we feel pain in our low back, joint pain, neck and many other parts of the body. We think “I am not flexible, yoga is not for me, etc”. But Yoga is meant for everyone. 
Nobody is excluded from it. It is the right accent which make your practice safe and affordable. 

In this workshop we will talk about our base – our feet. Our feet –  are our foundation, our basement.

What happens to the house, if the basement is not built correctly? How do we have to work with our legs during our yoga practice? What is the connection between our legs and our self-confidence?

FORREST YOGA INTENSIVE: HIP THERAPY

DATE: 20th August, 3.30-5.30pm
INVESTMENT: 2500LKR

The release and opening of the hips is no stranger to yoga. The yogic belief is that we hold many forms of unresolved emotional pain in these joints, which cause us suffering and upset through our lifetime. A Forrest Yoga Intensive is a workshop lending itself through ancient wisdom, pranayama and yoga asana, with the intention of healing our emotional mind-body connection.

Hip Therapy will lead you to focus your awareness on the root and sacral chakras with mindful breath followed through a slow warm up of asana to awaken the entire body. Forrest Yoga Abs will then fire up feeling through your solar plexus preparing you for the journey into the hips. The awakening of the 3 energy centers will prepare you for the profound self-healing your body is truly capable of. This is the gift of yoga.
