UPCOMING EVENTS

Inversion Workshops

Foundations to Inversion: Headstand 101 (Sirsasana) | Yoga Room, Hong Kong

October 1st | 2019

A dynamic alignment-based workshop designed towards understanding the fundamental principles and techniques to guide you confidently into your headstand inversion.

This workshop integrates both strength and intelligence. We first begin by covering the underlying mechanisms of headstand to bring awareness to the fundamental areas in the body to guide you into a safe and effective inversion practice. A short Vinyasa Flow will then take place to condition, and recruit the stabilizing muscles in the body right before inversion practice begins! Self-practice time will be allocated towards the end of the workshop for students to work on their challenges and to ask any questions to deepen their knowledge.

This workshop is multi-level, welcoming both beginners and intermediate practitioners. Modifications will be offered depending on the students’ comfort and ability, along with advanced options given upon teacher’s permission.

Progression to Inversion: Forearm Balance 101 | Yoga Room, Hong Kong

October 1st | 2019

This dynamic, alignment-based workshop is a progression of the workshop: Foundations to Inversions. A workshop designed for students to apply prior knowledge and skill towards advancing their inversion and arm balancing practice. Haven’t done the prior workshop? No problem. This workshop is also open to students who haven’t attended the previous workshop, as we will cover the basic fundamental principles and techniques to guide you confidently into forearm balancing.

This workshop integrates both strength and intelligence. We begin by covering the underlying mechanisms of forearm balancing to bring awareness to key areas in the body to guide you into a safe and effective inversion practice. We will then condition, and recruit stabilizing muscles of the body, such as the core, shoulders, and upper back, to prepare the body for forearm balancing. Self-practice time will be allocated towards the end of the workshop for students to work on their challenges and to ask any questions to deepen their knowledge.

This workshop is multi-level, welcoming both beginners and intermediate practitioners. Modifications will be offered depending on the students’ comfort and ability, along with advanced options given upon teacher’s permission.

Backbending Workshops

Foundations to Backbends: Backbends 101 Workshop | Yoga Room, Hong Kong

October 7th | 2019

This is a beginner’s friendly backbending workshop designed towards not only deepening your backbend journey but deepening your knowledge of the spine in order to guide you confidently into your backbend journey.

This workshop will take on an alignment-based approach with a hint of anatomy. We first begin by covering the basic anatomy of the spine – bringing awareness to important areas in the spine that we all should be familiar when it comes to movement and body. In preparation for backbending, we will condition the body by strengthening and stabilizing the spine for students to experience fundamental backbending principles in their own bodies through various asanas. Thereafter, the progressive backbending practice will begin, exploring all options: supported, modified, and full backbend inversion.

This workshop holds a safe space to learn and explore your backbends with confidence and with modifications. It is both beginner and intermediate friendly!

Progression to Backbends: Journey to Scorpion Workshop | Yoga Room, Hong Kong

October 7th | 2019

A dynamic and progressive workshop that delves you deeper into your backbending asana practice through length and extension.

This workshop takes on an intermediate level approach. Utilizing the concept of length and extension, a unique backbending sequence is developed to guide students into a better understanding of their range of mobility of the spine. Through progressive sequencing, advanced asanas will be introduced in all asana forms: arm balance, inversion, and backbending, leading us up to scorpion variations peak poses.

Students are encouraged to explore their backbends at whichever point they feel comfortable, and as their body allows them to go. Modifications and advancement options will both be provided.
