Develope the Salute to the Sun, Jumping through and Jumping back, Back bending and Inversions
Vinyasa Unlocked is a unique series of Yoga workshops that will enable you to learn and practice the different stages for graceful movements: simple and practical methods for improving Suryanamaskara through to Viparita Chakrasana.
The concept behind these techniques is to help balance flexibility and strength throughout the body. We need to develop both at the same time so that our stability and grace with all vinyasa is improved. Just as we aim to balance the inhalation and exhalation in our practice, the masculine and feminine and the Sun and Moon, it is essential that we seek to balance these qualities at the most basic level of the body. If you can develop your strength and flexibility equally, you can also begin to balance these energies in the subtle body and spiritually.
