We are excited to announce a new feature on our site to help you grow and expand your practice on the mat. In 2024 we will be launching Asana Lab, a monthly livestream workshop lead by Fiji or David. This will be held on zoom so you can interact with us in real time, ask questions, and get personalized pointers. We will cover a variety of topics from peak pose workshops, to working on shoulder stability and mobility, or how to build your inversion practice. In addition to ideas we have, we also want to hear from you!!! What would you like the monthly workshop to cover? Please share your ideas here so we can build a fun, fruitful, community building experience.
This sounds grand. I expect it is your plan, but assure us in the midlife and senior communities that it will be useful for all. I like having DYWM events to look forward to!
It may not be on brand for Asana Lab, but content I would love to see on the site is guided exploration of bandhas, marma points, and/or pranayama. The deeper practices we don’t often have time to do more than touch on in a flow class.
From a strict Asana standpoint, a crow series with wrist openers and strengthening, core strengthening, and including both crow and side crow could be fun. A class working toward multiple variations of eka pada koundinyasana (similarly with attention to wrists) is approachable since the floor is so nearby. 8-angle pose was the first “trick” I could do in an asana class, and I remember being shocked and amazed with myself. I have rarely seen it in a recorded class, but I think it’s a peak pose that many experienced practitioners could attain.
This is a fantastic idea, and one we can have as one of the Asana Lab focuses. This is an opportunity to help everyone step deeper into practice and understanding bandhas, pranayama, and some other components of the more subtle body practices is key.
I would also love to teach the crow all ways workshop and will make sure that is one of the first ones on our list!
+1 to the need for help with crow pose!
