YOGA FOR ANXIETY
In this workshop, Jambo will explore what happens to the body and brain when we experience anxiety and how we can employ techniques from Forrest Yoga to combat these feelings. Forrest Yoga is an inspiring, grounding and healing yoga practice that is intensely physical and internally focused. Guided by the use of breath, core exercises and intelligent sequencing, this practice releases tension and encourages a deeper connection with the physical and emotional body. Jambo will explore how breathing techniques can calm the nervous system and help us retrain our response to trigger memories and life’s challenges.
Saturday, March 7th, 1.30-4.30pm
ASSISTING CLINIC: THE SECRETS OF DEEP HIP OPENING
In this workshop, Jambo will introduce some fundamental hands-on assists to enable students to move each other into the deeper layers of hip-opening postures. This workshop will explore techniques to trouble-shoot tight hip flexors, loosen stuck lateral rotators and create more flexibility in the posterior chain (hamstrings, calf and back). Jambo’s experience of hands-on assisting has been developed through Thai yoga massage, Ayurveda yoga massage, Myofascial meridians and applied kinesiology. Come with injuries and case studies to explore, cherish and heal within Jambo’s Injury Clinic.
Sunday, March 8th, 1.30-4.30pm
