Event Details

This workshop considers the principles and reasons for working with strength in asana and teaches specific techniques to develop strength in key areas. Bringing strength into our physical practice allows us to be safe. Zoe says, “In my experience, Yoga Teachers and seasoned practitioners are already incredibly flexible but sometimes not so strong. Yet we need to have the necessary strength to support the joints.”

This will be a day of activity, discussion and humour, perfect for developing your own practice as well as being utterly relevant to class teaching.

Remember to bring two firm blocks to the workshop.
