Beyond Convenience- Master Vinyasa with Troy Hadeed

“I used to play, but now I stay.” – B.K.S Iyengar
Iyengar’s powerful words echo and reverberate throughout every moment of this practice. Our human tendency both on and off the mat is to move away from situations that become uncomfortable or challenging.

However, if we can be present with our feelings and stories, we will find that this is where the Yoga begins—and when

transformation happens.

This vinyasa practice will be a moving meditation in which Troy takes students through some long holds and, possibly, a few 4-letter words (!).

Sauchastewartgilchrist.jpg

More than just a physical, mental and spiritual workout!

20th July | 1:30-4:30pm

It is commonly held that Saucha literally means purity, cleanliness and clearness. Traditionally thanks to the teachings of Patanjalli, The Mahabharata and many generations of yogacharya as it refers to purity of mind, speech and body.

However, as we approach an environmental and ecological extinction it may be worth considering how we contribute to the purity and cleanliness of our world.

This workshop offers much more than just a physical, mental and spiritual workout!

A workshop for all that will open up a discussion and broaden an awareness as to how we can avoid further climate change and alter our world and our abode as we slide deeper into the anthropocene!

Yoga and Running!

21th July | 1:30-4:00pm

This workshop won’t reinvent the wheel of fancy ways to stretch your calves and quads – we’ve all seen these, tried them and know the score. This is about how yoga can help you train holistically; developing awareness of body and mind in order to expand your limits whilst training struggle-free. Learn how using the breath to make physiological connections can give you psychological support whilst training and competing, and why mind training and relaxation is as important as the physical stuff!

Taught by Forrest Yoga Guardian in Training and Long distance runner Rosalind Southward, this workshop will use a sequence focused on core, hips and legs to develop greater muscular awareness that will help you to train smarter in order to prevent injuries and heal faster. The workshop will also include breathwork, meditation/visualisation techniques and finish with a guided relaxation to reset and restore. An opportunity to learn Rosalind’s special pre and post-run recovery tricks!

This workshop is suitable for all levels of runners and Yogis. Whether you are a marathon runner or a couch to 5k, a long term Yogi or new to the mat, Rosalind looks forward to connecting with you to share her two big passions: Yoga and Running!

CONTORTURE® WORKSHOP: BACKBEND FROM THE FRONT TO CONTORT with Jonathan Nosan

CONTORTURE® WORKSHOP: BACKBEND FROM THE FRONT TO CONTORT with Jonathan Nosan

contorture.jpg

Internationally renown Contortionist and Coach Jonathan Nosan returns to Indaba with his CONTORTURE® Workshop: BackBend from The Front to Contort.

Relaxed Engagement, Release, Control, and Expansiveness roots the Flexility of Strength as we smarten the hips and core to new levels of burning and connectivity. Alignment of hips, sucking of gut, tucking of tailbones, and corkscrewing will quickly become your keyword mantras as a stick becomes your guide and sometimes crutch and cane.

Proper Breath Sequencing will prepare you to integrate your breath for a new control of hanging backbends, waterfalls (aka “dropbacks”) and ultimately getting thy heels over head in joy.

Headstands, Forearm Stands and Handstands will be worked through a controlled counterbalance and new attention towards the pyramidalis and placement of mind focus for body achievement. The magic happens when combining the pains and pleasures of connected and controlled backbending with controlled inversions to find your Personal CONTORTURE®.

We’ll work on weight transfers from feet to hands and finding an ease in and out of contorted poses with the when and where of breath. In the final hour you will have an opportunity to work on attaining personal Pose Goals, Sequencing, and a general awakening of body and brain and perhaps a bit of soul stirring. Possible things to look forward to: Mountain, Crocodile, Contortion Handstand, Scales, M, Cheststand, Split Pullovers and more…all with perfect alignment (of course).
