Purple Valley Yoga On-line Schedule 22-23.8.2020
Welcome for Petri’s and Wambui’s On-line workshop organised by Purple Valley Yoga, Goa. Here is the schedule for the two day intensive!
Saturday Aug 22
08.00-10.30 Led Primary and the first 6 poses from the Intermediate series with light pranayama: the “traditional” vinyasa count with steady pace, suitable for all practitioners. The practice is guided all the way to the Intermediate series pose Ustrasana, but the practitioner can choose when to stop, when to have breaks and do asana modifications.
11.00-12.30 Guided Accessible Half Primary series: suitable for beginners; older practitioners; those recovering from injury; more abundantly-bodied practitioners. The use of props such as blocks, bolsters, chairs, wall is welcome and guided instruction on these can be provided as needed.
14:00-15:30 Workshop: Off the Mat: Spiritual Practice as Sacred Activism
This workshop is suitable for yoga practitioners, shala and studio owners who wish to co-create more equity and community care in yoga and wellness spaces. We’ll look at how to take the insight gained from our spiritual practices and apply them back into this beautiful, burning world. What is our role as yoga practitioners around anti-Black racism and systemic oppression? How can we embody love and compassion in a way that doesn’t spiritually bypass ‘the hard topics?’ Bring a pen and paper and a brave, open heart.
Sunday Aug 23
08.00-10.30. Mysore style/self practice, all levels.
11:30-13:00 Workshop: Asana practice and adjustments for all body and mind types
We are all body types, shapes and ages. What is easy for one student can be impossible for someone else. That doesn’t mean that someone is doing a better or worst yoga. How we can observe the students body and mind types and be flexible with the “traditional” Ashtanga system? Making the practice comfortable for all the students and creating a safe zone to be who you are.
15.00-16.00 Q & A, Finishing Circle
