YogaFesta is BACK! I love YogaFesta and have been very fortunate to have been part of it in many different capacities over the past couple years. The organizer, Moon Choi, has a magical blend of sincere community-mindedness and astute behind-the-scenes know-how that makes for a fantastic annual event.
This year, I bringing AcroYoga flavor to the festival! Please join me for two wonderful workshops where we take poses and partnership to the next level.
Saturday, Nov 19 | 9-11am | Room D | HANDSTANDS IN COUNTERBALANCE
We are taking counterbalance to new heights and building handstands on a variety of foundations. You haven't seen AcroYoga like this! In the spirit of Montreal style, we'll explore "hybrid" (similarly-sized) partnering as opposed to the traditional "flyer/base" set-up we're familiar with. This means no Lady Base is too small!!! Yes you can!!! Skills covered include: foot-to-foot and handstands on thighs. Please be comfortable taking weight on your hands- no neck or wrist injuries!
Sunday, Nov 20 | 9-11am | ACROYOGA-INSPIRED ADJUSTMENTS (for teachers & students)
It's your students's world- you're just living in it! AcroYoga has radically changed how I approach adjustments. AcroYoga, like adjustments, require "reciprocity" : as the teacher, I am not doing the adjustment TO you but WITH you. It a physical conversation. Our ability to "listen" and "respond" non-verbally is a skill that is developed overtime just like any other practice or pose. Come learns skills for reading and receiving your students non-verbal cues and how to guide them into more enlightened connecting with their practice.
This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase talent from around Korea and around the world. Looking forward to meeting you on the mat!
