Nikki Estrada leads Let's Break It Down: A Comprehensive Weekend Immersion May 17-19 at YogaWorks Novato
 
Refine and deepen your yoga practice with 4 mini workshops covering hips, abdominals, shoulders, inversions and restorative postures. Each session will include an anatomy/movement lecture, breathing techniques and asana practice. By understanding how the body moves we can integrate healthy alignment and breath into all of our poses, creating more strength, freedom and vibrancy in our practice. 
 
Preparatory poses, modifications and variations included. This weekend series is open to dedicated students and teachers interested in developing their self-awareness and knowledge base for personal practice and beyond. 
 
TOPICS

Friday  | 7:30-9:30 pm | $50*
Core: When we think core, we think abdominal muscles. This is true but in yoga the core is so much more. This session will cover the muscles of the core and what it means to be strong and balanced. We will also cover the energetic core which is the secret key to hatha yoga and the path of transformation for the practitioner. Asana practice will be designed to help us both strengthen and access the center of the body. 
 
Saturday Session 1 | 1:30-3:30 pm | $50*  
Shoulders: The shoulders are the most mobile joint in the body, and in vinyasa yoga we use them a lot! Understanding how the shoulders move and keeping them strong, flexible and well aligned is essential to a sustainable, long-term vinyasa yoga practice. We will cover the movements of the shoulders as well as optimal alignment in key postures like downward facing dog, plank, chaturanga and more. Asana practice will help us uncover where we need more awareness in the shoulders. 
 
Saturday Session 2 |  4:30-6:30 pm | $50*  
Hips: The hips are like the shoulders in that they are a ball and socket joint, but way less mobile. After exploring the movements of the hip joint we will put our understanding into an asana practice that moves the hips in all directions creating mobility and strength.
 
Sunday | 1-4 pm | $60*
Inversions: Getting upside down can be exhilarating and scary at the same time. It is extremely important we prepare the body and the mind before reversing the weight onto the hands, head or shoulders. This session will cover two inversions and include assessing student capability to invert, contraindications, preparations for inverting and variations or alternative poses. No inversion experience is necessary to attend this practice. 
 
Restoratives + Breathing: The parasympathetic nervous system is a state of rest and ease. Practicing restorative yoga helps us to gently induce this calm and easy state of being by putting the body into a variety of shapes with support and allowing us to let go. Gently altering our breathing patterns (pranayama) can also support deep relaxation. This session will include a little theory and guided pranayama along with the restorative practice.
