Yoga for dancers

Kaja Lin 

Slovenia

 

 

 
The workshop, a combination of Hatha yoga and Vinyasa Flow, will provide more dynamic yoga sequences and asanas designed for dancers. We will focus on gaining muscle strength and joint stability and on increasing flexibility. The training is a balanced intertwinement of stretching and strengthening, which is crucial to injury prevention. Using the breath we will cultivate a strong and mindful practice that accelerates the flow of energy through the body and helps develop a stronger focus. 
This workshop is open to dancers and to everyone interested in yoga practice
