Yoga Foundations Workshop


This class is taught by:

Michele Van Valey

 
Michele has trained extensively with master teachers in the Ashtanga, Iyengar and Satyananda traditions in India, Ireland and the U.S. The variety in her studies over the years has enhanced her philosophy that yoga is for every body.
 
She has enjoyed working with athletes, children, professionals and people with therapeutic or rehabilitative needs. Some examples of class styles...
 
Vinyasa flow– A powerful practice of flowing Yoga postures linked together by the breath. Encourages flexibility, strength and proper alignment. Experience greater clarity and a relaxed state of awareness.
 
Gentle Rehabilitative – Easy gentle movements enhance joint mobility, relaxation and encourage strength and flexibility in areas that may be weak, sore or tender due to chronic pain. Work toward restoring the body’s natural balance combining gentile yoga, pilates and deep relaxation.
 
Michele is also trained as a Pilates teacher, Prenatal yoga teacher and Mum & Baby yoga teacher.
 
Qualified as a Holistic Health Consultant by the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City and the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, Michele provides lifestyle and nutrition consultations. More information on her website www.bodyworks.ie 
This workshop is designed to provide you with tools to enhance your weekly practice whether you are an absolute beginner or already attending flowing classes.

We will explore subtle rotations, space and stability in the shoulders, specifically looking at Downward Facing Dog, Chaturanga Dondasana, Upward Facing Dog and how to move safely and effortlessly between them in the Sun Salutations.

Each of us might have a slightly different expression of alignment in the same posture. We will work toward understanding alignment as it relates to each of us individually, bringing awareness to the way some fundamental yoga postures (asana) work, or might not work, in your body.

Expect to float out, both relaxed and energised, after a full-length guided Yoga Nidra, or deep relaxation practice. Bring warm socks and jumpers. Blankets and eye masks provided.
