About the event

Can we explore and be specific? Can we be precise and playful? Smart and flow? Can Advanced-level Yoga practice be safe and therapeutic?

Join Annie on this 3-day adventure to examine your practice in a structurally precise and sound way, whilst journeying into some less-traveled paths.

  • Precise alignment
  • Heightened awareness
  • Assess risks quickly
  • Appropriate propping and adjusts
  • Balance flexibility with strength
  • Balance release with stability
  • Joyful, focused practice

Samasthithi: Balancing the Central Channel- This open master class on Friday morning will be a strong exploration of the spine and the movement of Prana through the sushumna as we move through all planes, and in all orientations.

Afternoons will be workshop labs exploring ever-deepening expressions of Movement Principles. Each day will begin with a strong practice and follow with afternoons assessing, propping, and hands-on assists. Each practitioner will examine her own edge, and explore the conditions needed to stay awake to that ever-evolving edge. This work is at once demanding, humbling and playful.

Friday's Master Class is included in the training cost and hours - but is not required for attendance in the intensive.

*This training provides 20 hours towards your Wanderlust Advanced Training or your SmartFLOW Advanced Training.  Looking for less? Join us for the Master Class only on Friday.
