WORKSHOP: Mastering Chaturanga

Sunday, 26 February 2023

Chaturanga dandasana, or four-limbed staff pose, is the transition from high-to-low plank integrated into the Sun Salutation sequence of Vinyasa Yoga. Executing the posture requires arm strength, wrist flexibility, shoulder stability, and core integration, serving as preparation for arm balances and inversions. However, chaturanga is often done prematurely without proper understanding of alignment, acting as a common cause of yoga injury.

In “Mastering Chaturanga”, Ananda will offer a step-by-step breakdown of alignment, easy-to-do warm-ups, hands-on assists, individual attention, and open forum for inquiry.

This 2-hour-long workshop serves to:

  • Explain the optimal biomechanics of the shoulders, arms, and core in chaturanga dandasana
  • Explore warm-ups and preparatory poses
  • Exhibit how to flow through chaturanga safely
  • Promote longevity in the yoga practice

All levels are welcome:

  • The beginner will be equipped with tools to feel informed and safe in a fast-moving Vinyasa class.
  • The seasoned practitioner will refresh his/her knowledge on that which has become routine, recognizing and reversing chronic patterns of misalignment and habits that lead to injury over time.

Mastering chaturanga will not only elevate your practice to the next level, it will result in a more conscious, self-caring, and sustainable yoga practice! 

WHEN: Sunday, 26 February 2023, 11:00 – 13:00
WHERE: The House of Yoga, Rue de la Paix 14
PRICE: €35

Candlelight Pisces New Moon Ceremony

Sunday, 19 February 2023

Join Emily Torockio at The House of Yoga for a second New Moon Ceremony – this time a special restorative yoga session honoring the Pisces New Moon.

Pisces is the final water sign of the zodiac and rules imagination, dreams, creativity, and the full, rich, multifaceted world of our emotions.

New moons are a time for fresh starts, beginnings, the setting of intentions. We will spend time in the comfort of supported, restorative poses, and with the help of directed breath and music, be guided to connect more deeply with our visions, desires, and intuitions. The ceremony will end with a group intention ritual.

This 90-minute workshop will include:
• a brief talk about the astrological meaning of a Pisces New Moon
• a restorative yoga practice
• breathwork
• a candle intention meditation
• a group intention ritual

Please dress in cozy, comfortable clothes, and a bring a journal and something to write with.

WORKSHOP
YOGA FOR MEN

Saturday, 15 October 2022

Yoga is often thought of as a practice only suitable for flexible and athletic girls. However, we firmly believe that yoga is for everyone, regardless of their age, gender, body type and background.

If you’re a guy who is curious about yoga, this is the workshop for you!

This workshop will be designed specifically for men – especially men who have limited mobility in their hips, hamstrings, and shoulders to learn mobilise and strengthen these areas with dynamic movement.

Through this event, we hope that we’ll be able to debunk some myths and stereotypes about yoga being only for girls and access the benefits that this practice can provide you with.

Led by our teacher Bruce Chung, this workshop will be addressed to every guy who at least once wanted to give yoga a try but was intimidated by having “only girls” around them in the class.

WHEN: Saturday, 15 October 2022
from 11:30 – 12:45
WHERE: The House of Yoga, Rue de la Paix 14
PRICE: €25
