Day Christensen Ashtanga Intensive Week in Ireland

35.00295.00

In October- The 21st-25 Oct 2019 Day Christensen Will come to visits the Ashtangi Yogis of Ireland in Blackrock, Co. Louth for a week of practice and training. Day will offer 9 Sessions in Total. 5 Mysore and 4 Workshops.

Day Christensen began her yoga practice in 2004 after receiving her BFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago. During her college years as a fine artist, a lifelong interest in yogic philosophy began to surface. She incorporated the study of yoga with her academic pursuits. Though the reading of sacred and historical texts proved to be interesting, it was lacking one major aspect: experience. With many signs pointing her in the direction of yoga, she took up the practice and began to gain the experience she was missing from study alone.

Asana required a different type of strength and mobility that she had not bargained for as a former athlete. Despite the frustration and challenges she often met on the beginning path of yoga, she continued and found a renewed sense of vitality and clarity.

It was in 2005 that Day met Kino MacGregor in Chicago, and the experience connected her to the profound beauty and intelligence of the Ashtanga Vinyasa system. Today Day is an enthusiastic student of Ashtanga Yoga, practicing in lineage of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, having completed the Intermediate series and learning the Third series under Kino’s guidance.

Day’s teachings are born from her own disciplined and dedicated practice. She encourages students to challenge themselves physically, while, at the same time, be easy mentally. She is thrilled to share what she has learned with a new group of students in Ireland.

Evening Workshops with Day- 5pm-7pm

INTEGRATED BACKBENDING 2 HOUR

BACKBENDS ARE PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT POSTURES TO COUNTER THE STRESSES AND ACTIVITIES OF MODERN LIFE. THEY ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT AND OFTEN THE MOST DAUNTING. WHEN LEARNING AND PRACTICING PRIMARY SERIES, A PRACTICE OF MAINLY FORWARD BENDS AND TWISTS, IT CAN SEEM LIKE A CRUEL JOKE TO THEN ONTOP OFF AN ALREADY CHALLENGING PRACTICE END WITH A ROUND OF BACKWARD BENDING. BACKBENDS CAN FEEL EXHAUSTING AND IMPOSSIBLE WHEN WE FIRST LEARN THEM. WE WILL EXPLORE THE POSTURES IN PRIMARY SERIES THAT WILL LEAD TO THE MOST PLEASANT BACKBENDING EXPERIENCE POSSIBLE.

IN THIS WORKSHOP, WE WILL EXPLORE WAYS TO WORK WITH BACKBENDS THAT WILL FOCUS ON HOW TO BUILD OPENESS IN THE FRONT SIDE OF THE BODY, OPEN YOUR HIIPS AND SHOULDERS AND INSPIRE OVERALL STRENGTH, MAKING THE COMMON SORE BACK A THING OF THE PAST. WE WILL LOOK AT SOME ALIGNMENT PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICES THAT CAN FOREVER TAKE THE PAINFUL AND UNCOMFORTABLE ASSOCIATIONS WITH THE LOWER BACK AND TRANSFORM THEM INTO THE EXILLERATING EXPERIENCE THEY CAN BE. THOUGH STRENGTH IS NOT OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH DEEP BACKBENDS, AND MORE FLEXIBLILITY IS EMPHASIZED, YOU WILL WALK AWAY WITH A NEW UNDERSTANDING OF THE IMPORTANT ROLE STRENGTH PLAYS IN YOUR BACKBENDS AND OVER-ALL HEALTH OF YOUR SPINE. COMPOUND THAT WITH GOOD FORM AND YOU WILL GAIN SOME NEW INSIGHTS INTO THE POWER OF DEEP BACKBENDS. PRACTICES AND A DEMONSTRATION WILL BE INCLUDED TO GUIDE YOU TO EVENTUALLY STAND AND DROP BACK FROM URDHVA DHANURASANA ON YOUR OWN.

INVESTIGATION OF THE INTERMEDIATE SERIES 2 HOURS

THE INTERMEDIATE SERIES OF ASHTANGA YOGA, OR NADI SHODANA, REQUIRES A DEEPER LEVEL OF MOBILITY AND VERSATILITY THAN ITS PREDACESSOR. THE SERIES OPENS WITH SPINAL EXTENSIONS AND CONTAINS ONE OF THE DEEPEST BACKBENDS IN ASHTANGA. IT THEN MOVES INTO THE WORLD OF DEEP EXTERNAL HIP ROTATION AND SPINAL FLEXION WITH A SERIES OF POSTURES, WHICH INVOLVE PUTTING YOUR LEG BEHIND YOU HEAD. FINALLY THE PRACTICES CULMINATES WITH A SECTION OF POSTURES THAT REQUIRE DYNAMIC MOVEMNTS BETWEEN SPINAL EXTENSION AND FLEXION AND INVOLVE GREAT FEATS OF STRENGTH. IN THIS WORKSHOP WE WILL DISCUSS AND EXPLORE HOW THESE MOVEMENTS ARE POSSIBLE WITHOUT PAIN, STRESS, OR INJURY, THOUGH THE SERIES IS VERY DEMANDING PHYSICALLY, IT IS ULTIMATELY MEANT TO WORK ON THE LEVEL OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM, WHERE ONCE ACHIEVED, THE PRACTITIONER CAN HOPE TO FIND A DEEPER AND OVERALL CALM.
