Turtles, Insects and Peacocks with Andy Gill

Saturday 14th March, 2 – 5 pm

An exploration of peak postures in Ashtanga Yoga’s primary and second series

We can often find ourselves stuck in the practice when we reach the peak postures in both the Primary and Second series. Sometimes we need to bring more intelligence and creativity to the problems that these kinds of postures pose us.

In this playful workshop exploration, Andy will share his approach and experience to tackling these type of postures. In this workshop will focus on the various expressions of Turtle, The Insect and the Peacock with a view to finding approaches and an expression of the posture that works for you.

The ideas Andy will share will help you throughout your practice and in finding solutions to other challenging postures.

In this workshop we will explore deep hip mobility work, leg behind the head postures, headstanding and forearm balances. We will work with related postures, preparation exercises, modifications and build links through the Primary and Second series of Ashtanga. Andy will show how modifications and a creative approach to postural work can help you work towards mastery in these postures

This will be a hands on practical workshop, with plenty of warm up and with a strong anatomical and biomechanical focus.
