Charity Yoga Workshop – July 25

180

‘Line of Gravity’

We are pleased to announce that Kreg Weiss will be hosting his fifth charity Yoga Workshop in support of Paper Kite Children’s Foundation!

Join Kreg for this exploratory charity yoga workshop at Element Yoga. We will examine and play with the concept of ‘line of gravity’ in relation to standing yoga poses. By mindfully connecting to our inherent flow of gravity, we can more readily align with fluidity and integrity throughout the biomechanics of our musculoskeletal systems. A major focus of this playful workshop will be on the ankle, knee and hip interactions and on how these concepts can be woven throughout our practice as well as into our other daily physical activities.element Yoga

We will engage questions like:

• Where should our knees flow in relation to our feet when we squat?

• How can changing our application of pada bandha (foot lock) reduce negative stresses in the knee?

• What are some common limitations to accessing range of motion in the lower body?

• Why we should not expect everyone to be similarly aligned in standing postures?

Proceeds of this workshop will go to Paper Kite Foundation, a non-profit charity working to ensure that basic necessities are logo_CF_tag_coloravailable to orphanages in the state of Bihar, India. This workshop will be presented in english and will be suitable for teachers and students.
