Flowing into Alignment 2-3:15pm — We often think of alignment as being static and very structured, but in this Vinyasa workshop we will explore how to bring the body into alignment with ‘movement and flow’. By exploring movements that helps us experience our range of motion/flexibility/strength we can then settle into the targeted asana and experience the alignment and structure of the asanas in a new found way! Explore all the possibilities and then settle down and savor! A lot of focus on movements and cueing in Vinyasa that can bring students into alignment while flowing!

Cueing, Aligning and Adjusting 3:30-6pm -Verbally guiding your students into poses is an important skill set that will bring more precision and grace to your teachings. With the anatomical knowledge of the body you can now help your students align correctly in their asana (posture). Learn to safely give hands on adjustments while guiding your students into alignment. Learning the proper approach and stance as the ‘adjuster’ and plenty of hands on time working with others to experience and receive feedback on the actual adjustments received. Great opportunity to brush up on or increase your knowledge of the art of adjusting!

This workshop is in conjunction with teacher training, so space is limited. Sign up today to reserve your spot!

Wade Gotwals found Yoga in the late 90s during his travels and since then has made it his passion to discover alternative techniques for furthering growth of mind and spirit and for healing the body. He is teaching internationally in Asia, Europe, South America and the U.S. and is always excited about sharing his new discoveries through yoga. Wade teaches a unique Vinyasa flow fusion of styles derived from his travels and from the inspirations of teachers like Dharma Mittra and Rusty Wells. His certifications in Ashtanga/Vinyasa, Thai and Intuitive Massage, and Touch for Health added with his meditation and Advaita studies in India with Ramesh Balsekar have given him many gifts to be thankful for and share with others. His teaching style is structured by at the same time very playful and always gives options of openness, depth and strength so that everyone will be challenged and can share their energy. The Advaitic principles of oneness and non separation are the dharmic principles to his teachings. In his classes, workshops and retreats you can expect a creative vinyasa flow based practice, with individual attention to challenging poses deconstructed so everyone is able to approach at their level. Each workshop also showcases some of the other limbs of yoga whether it be meditation, dharma, bhakti or even Thai yoga.
