Deepen your practice: Hips, Core, Shoulders and Heart
2 workshops 16-17 June Tel Aviv, Israel

Hips & Core | Friday June 16 | 15-17:30

Would you like to feel more free in your movements and be able to move like a ninja? Your center of gravity as well as center of mobility is in the hips. Releasing hip tension helps release many issues of pain and discomfort from your legs to your lower back. It also helps release stuck emotions and worries. We will do chakra meditations to understand some of our self-limiting conditioning of guilt, fear and shame.
 
In this workshop we will look at both the physical as well as emotional and energetics of the hips and your core. We will understand the related emotions that can be released through mind work, breath work (pranayama) and asana – the specific flow of poses. We will practice an efficient vinyasa and give you ideas of how to practice at home so you can help your hips open quicker and easier and get a stronger core.

Shoulder & Heart | Saturday June 17 | 15-18

 Would you like to sing your heart out and feel free in your body and mind? Opening your heart center further allows freedom of emotions, and freedom of being. So much is held in this area – emotions related to parents and relationships, grief, co-dependency and compassion. This affects our emotional and spiritual self as well as the physical body – especially in the chest and shoulders.
 
In this workshop we will learn to open and release safety the back, heart center, shoulders and chest. This will allow you greater mobility, long-lasting healthy spine, protect you from shoulder injuries, release neck tension and let you feel like you can fly! We will learn specific alignments as well as ways to deepen your practices. We will practice shoulder techniques, chakra meditation, and back extensions to help the flow of energy through the body.

It is highly advised you do both workshops. They are very connected and one leads to the other. Yes, you can join to just one, but to really feel the freedom, join both!

Open to all levels – fun and safe.
Regular price 300₪ per workshop:  Yoga Levontin
