WORKSHOP I: Restorative Aerial yoga “Let the gravity work for you”
For learners and yoga teachers
In this workshop, we will approach aerial yoga in a restorative form. In the first part, the aerial yoga hammock is installed at knee height and your weight is partially supported by it. Each posture is maintained for 3 to 5 minutes, inversions are partial and always with a contact on the ground. Through breaths and support adjustments, you will be guided to find the right position where your being fully agrees to let go of tensions.
In the second half of the workshop, the hammock is adjusted to hip height. Postures are held for 1 to 2 minutes and transitions are more frequent. Lengthening is done by active stretching using the hammock as a friendly support. Inversions are total and mostly without contact with the floor. Flowing sequences of movements are introduced in harmony with the breath.
A moment to arrive… to breathe… to feel… to let gravity work for you and to enjoy the full expansion of your body.
WORKSHOP II: Aerial yoga “Fun, Fit, Flow, Acro”
For learners and yoga teachers
In this workshop you will be introduced to a few of Valerie’s aerial yoga programs: Air Fun, Air Fit, Air Flow and Air Acro. You can expect to learn a sequence of the Sun Salutation in suspension, work handstand posture, experiment acrobatic exercises, have fun spinning, swinging and review most of the typical aerial yoga postures. To help you optimize your body awareness and integrate new information more easily, Valerie will guide your attention to important reference points such as: focal zone, hand grip, weight transfers, visual references and transitions.
Fun, engaging and creative, this workshop offers a three dimensional way to work with your body and improve your agility.
