Dynamic Ageing and Maintenance:Movement is the best medicine for health and longevity of the body. As we age though, the body tends towards stiffness, which makes it harder to move, so we move less, and the less we move, the stiffer we become, perpetuating this cycle. In this workshop we'll explore healthy spinal movement. Through a focus on active, braced movement we’ll explore how to use and move the spine safely, we will regain the knowledge, tools and strength to get our spine stable, strong and resilient. "A healthy spine is a healthy life." For all levels of practitioners.

Diagnostics, Assessment & Progression: Rebooting your Practice
When we start practicing yoga we are filled with possibility and transformation. Over time though the "learning curve" slows and we can often feel that progress slows or comes to a complete halt. Do we know why and how? And more importantly do we know what to do about it? In this day of training, we will:
- learn how to use our practice to assess and diagnose where we have gotten stuck in our bodies
- learn tools and protocols for addressing these limitations
- cover strategies and exercises for getting our practice back to progressing and restarting the process of transformation
This workshop is intended to educate you in how to identify where you are stuck in your body and practice and to empower and stimulate you to take charge and create more freedom in your body.

The Paradox of Comfort:We often think of comfort as a process of letting go and releasing/relaxing from stress and tension. During this workshop we’ll expose why comfort is quite the opposite, and lay out strategies to gain greater comfort in our shoulder girdle, upper back and neck. We’ll discuss and learn the function of the shoulder girdle, and how to use it. Primarily, we’ll learn exercises and techniques to strengthen and create a healthy shoulder girdle over time, and as a result, achieve greater comfort in our bodies and lives.
