WORKSHOP • Functional Yoga
Deze workshop wordt in het Engels gegeven.
When teaching yoga, we all want our students to enjoy their practice and to be safe. The problem is that people are fundamentally different: their bodies can vary greatly. The adjustment that makes someone feel amazing in a pose can hurt and even damage someone else.
In a functional approach we are not worried about how a pose should look but instead we focus on what a pose should be doing, or in other words, where you should be feeling it. We communicate what we want you to feel, and give you options to adapt the pose until the pose works for you. Instead of working towards an aesthetic ideal we are making the pose available and beneficial to everybody in class, respecting their differences and abilities.
In this workshop we will explore the scientific basis of functional yoga in a down to earth and accessible way, learn some tests to understand range of motion and practice functinally to apply all these principles for ourselves.
