Day Christensen Workshops

Fri 25th – Sun 27th October 2019

Mandala Yoga together with Boss Hot Yoga are delighted to bring Day Christensen all the way from Miami to join us for the October bank holiday weekend (25th – 27th October).

Day will lead a series of functional movement seminars and movement workshops that will deepen both your yoga practice and knowledge about how the body moves. Learn the anatomical explanation of exactly how to derive the safest full range of motion from your yoga asanas.

This weekend will be very thorough and useful for all levels of practitioners including the most basic.

Day is an athlete, incredible yogi and experienced teacher.  An authorised Level 2 Ashtanga teacher,  she is Strong, Powerful, Authentic, Knowledgeable.  She is not to be missed.

ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS

These seminars and workshops will provide a deep understanding of the strength and skills needed to develop control and confidence in your yoga practice. Whilst it’s preferable to complete the entire series (€175), each workshop can be booked individually.

‘This program is the heart and soul, the foundation of all my teaching and practice so I am most excited to share it in such a comprehensive format in Dublin”.

DAY1YOGA Method: Workshops / Seminars / Practice

These MODULES will provide meaningful explanation for ALL level of practitioners regarding the strength and skills toward the development of control and confidence in your vinyasa PLUS anatomical explanation of exactly how to derive the safest full range of motion from your yoga asanas.

All the Functional Movement Modules (A, B & C below) are seminars, where you can expect verbal explanation and demonstrations with very little physical class participation. Mental participation is a must! (Don’t worry you will be hooked!)

WANT TO LEARN ASHTANGA YOGA?

Ashtanga Yoga is the foundation practice for what we know today as ‘vinyasa flow’, ‘rocket yoga’ and even ‘power yoga’. The Ashtanga practice is made up of a primary, secondary and advanced series that students progress through.

The Primary Series is the foundation series and is a set sequence of postures practiced in the same way each class. The breath and the drishti (gaze) accompany each movement. It is this repetition of poses that brings the discipline and great strength we associate with Ashtanga yoga and yogis.

Ahead of Day’s arrival if you’d like to explore and learn the essentials of the Ashtanga yoga primary series, we have an Ashtanga led class every Wednesday evening at 6.30pm  taught by Alison Clancy.  Learn more.

Alison is an experienced Vinyasa, Forrest and Ashtanga yoga teacher. She teaches power yoga with Mandala Yoga. .
