A one day workshop with Anthea Sweet for yoga practitioners, teachers and therapists who appreciate the beauty of the breath.
In this workshop, you will learn how you can develop an appropriate balance between flexibility and strength in your body. We’ll get to the bottom of why flexibility alone is not enough, when it is dangerous, why it might be better termed “mobility” and how the breath is key to building strength and resilience as well as opening the body.
Using games and props to identify and tackle common areas of weakness, vulnerability and imbalance, we look at practical strategies for different age groups and abilities, including making adjustments and body awareness which supports a balanced and healthy structure. We’ll consider what it really means to be strong in our core - and how we can bring this into yoga asanas without doing sit-ups and crunchies!
