CPD - THE MECHANICS OF THE SPINE - 4 DAY LONG WEEKEND

The mechanics of the Spine

The Primary Series, begins the process of opening, aligning and balancing the left and right sides of the body.  We will observe our own and each others varied patterns in the two sides of our bodies and see where this may be connected to areas of restriction in the spine.

This CPD will explore how to help to access the 4 segments of the spine by connecting to their inherent movent possibities.  We will look at the core (bandha) and our connection to foundation through the legs and the pelvis and the shoulders.  We need to be clear with our intentions through the major joints connecting to the spine and how they can work to support the spine as opposed to pulling the spine beyond its safety limitations. The kinetic chain of support from the foot to the spine (foot, ankle, knee, hip to Sacroiliac joint) and the hand, wrist elbow shoulder, sterno clavicular joint and shoulder blade connection to the ribcage and spine.

This CPD will focus primarily on standing poses and seated poses of the Primary series. We will clarify where we want the movements required by the asana to come from and the available movements in the spine that can sometimes hinder or otherwise assist the asanas progress. This CPD is useful to all teachers and will give you a greater understanding of adjustments in poses.

CPD - STANDING ASANA - A COMPLETE EXPLORATION - 4 DAY LONG WEEKEND

Standing Asana - a complete exploration

BOOKING - CLICK HERE

Getting the Standing poses to work for you in preparing the hips for the subsequent seated poses of the primary series.

We will take time to look at the whole standing sequence, where to focus when adjusting the standing asana.  The support of the spine and how to make the legs work for you in opeing the hips and not collapsing into our hips.  When we support the pelvis effectively we have a much clearer sense of the spine and the space we can create.

We will use belts to move hips and shoulders into aligned and supported positions so that the spine can also find its own self support without losing its own space and with less contortion.

The tendency for us all is to fall into patterns of practice that over time can create issues in the body, Yoga is about health and how we can bring optimum health to the body as a whole.  Be prepared to change some of the patterns you have adopted, to find new space and new strength to support the new space.

This CPD is particularly useful for new teachers and can help to inform you when assessing where best to adjust.

PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN YOGA MAT and any other supports you may need.

VENUE:   Gods Own Villa, Light House Beach, Kovalam, Thiruvananthapuram, India.

Accommodation   

All accommodation is self-booked. You can book a room anywhere in Kovalam –near to Light house beach.    

Do make sure that you book an A/C room – wherever you go. There is a lot of accommodation to choose from so take a look on booking.com but do remember to make sure its in a reasonable walking distance from Light House Beach for your own comfort.   Obviously if you don’t mind a 30 minute walk from the Leila, and you wish to stay in luxury on the hill:) you can.

NB: It can be sensible to  just book a couple of nights somewhere on the internet, and then walk around and find a room once you have arrived! In this way - you have an arrival address to use on entry into India.

 Travel

Very Simple really – flights to Trivandrum (Thiruvananthapuram), and an airport taxi to Kovalam. Its better to go to the pre booked taxi desk if your hotel hasn’t sent a man to collect you, with a name board. This helps to avoid over inflated taxi fare charges.  You can organise a taxi via your accommodation.

NB: Make sure you have an arrival address to use for the customs arrivals slip at the airport and to tell the taxi where to take you. Once you arrive, enjoy the sand, the sea, the ginger tea and Yoga will await you.

Also remember to get a VISA.  These are bookable online take around 48 hours to receive and last for upto 30 days. PRINT and bring with you to show at Trivandrum airport.
