THURSDAY 18TH, AUG

Adjustments Workshop: Applying Assisted Flexibility
1:30pm-4:00pm

Learn to offer mobility corrections to mend the gap between active and passive flexibility and rewire the nervous system. Find techniques that help the student explore a greater range in their joints without the full load of the body’s weight.

Sequencing Workshop: cYoga Sequencing Methodology (Part I)
4:30-6:00pm

In this 2-part workshop we’ll uncover the secrets of cYoga’s intelligent sequencing, so not only will you feel ready to tackle tougher  asanas but also learn to incorporate specific mobility drills, apply static/dynamic stabilization connections and create new neuromuscular pathways. You’ll discover how to progressively gain control, freedom and stability of your movement, as well as minimizing soreness the next day. A must for teachers or those looking to deepen their knowledge about the human body and its functionalities. 

Yoga Workshop: Shoulder Mobility For Better Backbends
6:30-8:30pm

The shoulder girdle, how to actively improve its range while maintaining strength and stability, will be the main focus of this class. We’ll work on backbends (and a few inversions), that will organically work your shoulders safely and pain free. 

FRIDAY 19TH, AUG

Adjustments Workshop:  Matching Intention With Asana
1:30pm-4:00pm

Learn how the intention of the teacher intelligently adapts to the phases of the asana in order to properly engage the new student, match the current expression of the asana and evolve the student’s practice.

Sequencing Workshop: cYoga Sequencing Methodology (Part II)
4:30-6:00pm

In this 2-part workshop we’ll uncover the secrets of cYoga’s intelligent sequencing, so not only will you feel ready to tackle tougher  asanas but also learn to incorporate specific mobility drills, apply static/dynamic stabilization connections and create new neuromuscular pathways. You’ll discover how to progressively gain control, freedom and stability of your movement, as well as minimizing soreness the next day. A must for teachers or those looking to deepen their knowledge about the human body and its functionalities. 

Yoga Workshop: Hip Openers For Tight Backs, Hamstrings And Gluts

SATURDAY 20TH, AUG

Yoga Workshop: Controlling Handstands
1:30-3:30pm

This workshop will focus on how to achieve longer Handstands, both in time and shape, as well as covering the preparation needed behind the scenes. Alignment, balance and control, doesn’t come from one particular area, but a sum of elements that will be explained in detail through multiple drills. We’ll also cover several wrist, elbow and shoulder stretches, to keep them strong and limber.

Yoga Workshop: Twists, Side Bends And Inversions
4:00-6:00pm

The target of this workshop will be longer lats, stronger QL, active gluteals, TFL proper engagement and some upside down time to put it all together. This unique class will make you access muscles you didn’t know you had. 

Restorative Movement
6:30-8:00pm

Improve long term patterns of movement and functionality by accessing the programming of the nervous system. Create new opportunities for clear sensory input and motor adaptation through gentle movement pattern re-conditioning. This class is restorative, we will be laying down on the floor most of the time moving the body gently.

SUNDAY 21ST, AUG

Yoga Workshop: Spinal Freedom: Magic Wand Backbends
1:30-3:30pm

A workshop to strengthen low back, release shoulders, connect with your t-spine and find mobility in the hip flexors. This class will focus on all those areas to help gain awareness, expand your end range, and describe a clearer path on what you need to work on moving forward. The sequence will take you places you never thought possible and will allow some play time to explore.

Meditation Workshop: A New You
4:00-6:00pm

Find the psychological limitations that keep you in conflict with yourself and the world, release past trauma and the labels of the little self to find a better and larger version of a higher self.

Philosophy Workshop: Quantum Indian Philosophy
6:30-8:00pm

We are going to look at Indian Philosophy with new eyes, through the lens of Quantum Physics. Samkhya, the Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita and Quantum Mechanics have more in common than you think.

THURSDAY 25TH, AUG

ADJUSTMENTS INTENSIVE DAY 1

Adjustments Session 1: Core Techniques Per Theme 1:00-3:00

Backbends, Hip Openers, Seated and Standing poses, Arm Balances, Inversions, Twists, each theme has a core of techniques we can quickly rely on to make our adjustments consistent. The use of the core techniques will shorten the time to learn and become proficient with adjustments.

Adjustments Session 2: The Use of Assisted Flexibility 3:30-5:30

Yoga Asana require the engagement of the muscle that is being stretched, reducing the ability to grow longer since it has to maintain either the balance or the shape of the pose. We will learn how to use assisted flexibility to expand the performance of muscle and nervous system through the practice

FRIDAY 26TH, AUG

ADJUSTMENTS INTENSIVE DAY 2

Adjustments Session 3: Unraveling Peak Poses 1:00-3:00

Deep backbends and hip openers, perfect inversions, or precise balancing poses require individual analysis and techniques to help the student unravel their secrets as well as a clear understanding of the essential components of the pose and areas to practice as an adjuster. 

Adjustments Session 4: Adjusting Balance and Movement 3:30-5:30

Balancing poses, Arm Balances and transitions, whether on the hands or standing, present a challenge for the adjuster since the body of the student is moving or fighting to keep the balance and move from one asana to the next. These are the most challenging asanas to adjust.

Yoga Workshop: Handstands: Entries, Endurance, Lines 6:00-8:00pm

This 2hr workshop will focus on a variety of entries into Handstand, floor as well as partner work to improve endurance, alignment and end range without sacrificing stability. We’ll also look for individual blind spots that prevent from advancing in our Handstand practice.

SATURDAY 27TH, AUG

Yoga Workshop: Handstands, Middlesplits and Sidebends 2:00-4:00pm

This workshop will pay special attention to our splits and spinal lateral flexion in order to smoothly jump, hold and dismount from Handstand. Some press drills will be addressed, as well as high & low balancing isometric holds. Besides the usual suspects (pecs, traps, triceps, biceps, abs, gluteals…), we’ll head towards the sidelines for some TFL, obliques, lats and QL work. This is a most unique and extraordinary session, not to be missed!

Yoga Workshop: Backbends, Hollowbacks and Thoracic Openers 4:30-6:30

After a strengthening workshop, this one will dive into the backbend world, thoracic/shoulder extensions as well as deepening hip flexors’ range, without sacrificing joint integrity. Besides the traditional, new breath work techniques will be covered to facilitate the process. This class is for all levels, especially for those working on their bendiness although it may have not yet manifested in the physical realm…

Restorative Movement
7:00-8:30

Improve long term patterns of movement and functionality by accessing the programming of the nervous system. Create new opportunities for clear sensory input and motor adaptation through gentle movement pattern re-conditioning. This class is restorative, we will be laying down on the floor most of the time moving the body gently.

SUNDAY 28TH, AUG

Yoga Workshop: Inversions: Transitions and Tucks 2:00-4:00pm

This last workshop will explore a number of inversions, arm balances and transitions between them, to build lasting strength. Since for many of these our mass’ center will be lower, the tendency is to feel heavier and just ‘survive’, ‘face plant’ or quit. This fun class will break down many of these moves, provide with tools, doable alternatives as well as study different shoulder positions and the endless source of power of the hips. 

Meditation Workshop: A New You
4:30-6:30

Find the psychological limitations that keep you in conflict with yourself and the world, release past trauma and the labels of the little self to find a better and larger version of a higher self.

Philosophy Workshop: Quantum Indian Philosophy
7:00-8:30

We are going to look at Indian Philosophy with new eyes, through the lens of Quantum Physics. Samkhya, the Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita and Quantum Mechanics have more in common than you think.
