    Fine Tuning Alignment and Self Adjustment: A Yoga workshop with Joanna Walter

    “Breaking down Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations)”

    Saturday 8th of July 2017 – from 13.00 to 16.00 – £25

    Why bother learning to align the body?

    On a very physical level it helps protect the bones , joints , muscles, vessels, tissue and organs of the body . Keeping them in a much better working order.

    But just as important although not so obvious is how important correct physical alignment is in regard to the flow of energy/Prana in the body.

    When we go to a Yoga class our alignment gets adjusted by the teacher, but what can we do when we are practicing on our own? During this workshop I will be teaching techniques on how to fine tune your alignment so you can have a better understanding of what correct alignment looks and feels like. I will also be giving techniques on how to adjust your own alignment using prop.

    Last year we concentrated on standing postures.This year we will look at Surya Namaskar, breaking it down to its individual postures creating good alignment in each; then bringing the poses back together flowing with the breath .

    About Joanna Walter

    Jo has been practicing Yoga for 20 years, starting with a 10 day Vipassana meditation in 1996 in Nepal. This was followed by a devoted Ashtanga Vinyasa practice which led to her 1st teacher training with Pattabhi Jois’s nephew Vishwanath in 2003,  which was an amazing full time 3 month intensive in Bangalore – India.

    She then had the great fortune to be part of the last full time 9 month teacher training with Louisa Sear’s Yoga Arts in Australia. During her 9 month training she met her teacher Clive Sheridan who’s experience and knowledge of Yoga is truly outstanding, teaching his unique blend of Hatha Yoga, Advaita Vedanta and Tantra. Jo has also been very lucky to be Clive’s assistant on several of his retreats. Also on the 9 month training she met Iyengar teacher’s Glen and Margaret Ceresoli who she has spent the last 6 years training with.

    She has been teaching Yoga professionally since 2005.
