MASALA
= a mixture of spices used in cooking
= someone or something that comprises a varied mixture of elements

SPICE UP YOUR YOGA PRACTICE !
4 evenings focused on the aspects of Yoga that are rarely covered in a regular class. 4 workshop-style classes where you can be a student; take notes, ask questions, introspect.

The intention behind this course is for you to delve a bit deeper into the YOGA = SCIENCE concept, not only to gain knowledge but to have a direct experience with topics that are normally passed on to students only when they undertake a teacher training. As a teacher at Reykjavik Yoga, Klara believes that it's her duty to share the knowledge to anyone that wants to learn.

YOGA MASALA will include the blend of:

SIMPLE KRIYAS
Purification techniques, focused mainly on digestion as this is a topic students have been inquiring about a lot and have had great results. In traditional Hatha Yoga this a first step for a Yoga practitioner.

THE "WHY" BEHIND ASANAS
Why do we do what we do on the mat? Why all these poses; why to bend forward, bend back and twist ? ' Why? ' is an important question of any student. Come curious.

PRANAYAM
Breathwork and its aspects are becoming more and more popular and people are recognizing its power. We will look at different techniques that are simple and safe to practice, when you later on go and practice on your own.

MEDITATION
"If you have time to breathe, you have time to meditate" -
Ajahn Chah.

YOGA AS THERAPY
THof years. Now we are turning to Yoga as a complimentary therapy to daily life, to our body and mind.
~
THIS COURSE IS SUITABLE TO ALL LEVELS
If you're a beginner, you will get a solid foundation and overview. If you are a yoga practitioner, you will enhance your existing practice. If you're a teacher, you will refresh your knowledge.

The course is based on the tradition of Hatha Yoga. All styles of Yoga originate from these roots, from the very science of it.

Klara has been part of Reykjavik Yoga for over two years and when she's not in Iceland she's in India, deepening her studies. she's currently on her way from one of those trips and she's looking forward to practicing with you.

Workshop with Julie Martin

Workshop with Julie Martin

FINDING STRENGTH AND STABILITY THROUGH FOOT AND PELVIS CONNECTION

The power our feet have to create a beautifully stable structure throughout the body is incredible. Think of an information super highway running from your foot to your pelvis and up through the spine, constantly adapting, shifting weight, finding balance and strength. This happens inherently and yet most people spend a good portion of their day wearing shoes that limit or even switch off the ability for this information to connect freely.

In this workshop we will look at the anatomical function and play with a variety of explorations to see how releasing the fascia in the foot can create more space in the legs and the pelvis effortlessly as well as seeing the foot and the big toe as powerhouses of propulsion. From foot massage to “gorilla walks” we find an ease in movement with strength and grace and be super grateful for our amazing feet!


ABOUT JULIE

Julie Martin wants you to think outside the box, get off your mat, shake up the old dogmas and find the freedom to unfold into the beauty of a yoga practice that emerges from the inside.

With over 25 years of experience and an international following of students and teachers alike, Julie’s greatest aim is to inspire. Her particular passion for human movement means continual investigation of new anatomical approaches, working with natural movement, range of motion, integrated stability and letting go of some of the old asana myths in order to move with the body and not against it. The practice is always an inquiry, a somatic exploration of sensation, movement, and stillness.

"Your yoga practice should invite you into relationship with your self, your body, your mind and emotions. This is not Instagram yoga or circus skills class. This is moving through layers, feeling, experiencing and observing process, moving towards stillness, moving towards self."
