Drills for skills – Techniques and training for arm balances
This workshop is for everyone who enjoys physical challenges and wishes to build up body awareness and confidence for arm balances. We will explore different movement sequences, learn tricks to balance on our hands and strengthen arms, legs and the abdomen.
Sunday, 22nd August: 14.00 – 17.00 with Stefanie
Bird Poses – Finding ease and buoyancy
Many yoga asanas are named after bird creatures for a reason, because they play with balance and gravity. Crow, eagle, peacock and pigeon are majestic, manifold and challenging. In this workshop we will particularly focus on shoulder opening to spread our wings and balance on one leg and on our arms.
Friday, 27th August: 14.00 –17.00 with Die
Applied anatomy for your yoga practice
In this workshop we will study the fascia, which traverses the body like a network of tension. We will explore the connection of the sole of the foot with the scalp and get to know the arches of the feet and the leg spiral in correlation with the pelvic floor. We will take this into practice and establish a dynamic foundation for standing poses and balances.
Sunday, 29th August: 10.30 –13.00 with Stefanie
Introduction and deepening of Pranayama practice
The practice of Pranayama energizes us physically as well as mentally. In this workshop we will observe the breath from an anatomical and a yogic angle. We will learn to loosen breathing patterns and blockages in order to freely unfold the breath and mindfully use our respiratory muscles. We will repeat and consolidate the basics to gradually further develop our Pranayama practice.
Friday, 3rd September: 14.00 –17.00 with Manu
The core – Centre of inner strength and confidence
In this workshop we study the anatomy of the abdomen and focus on working with the Psoas, the so-called soul muscle. With twists, back bends, forward folds as well as Pranayama and Chakra meditation, we immerse deeply into the organic and energetic layers of the core.
Friday, 3rd September: 18.00-20.00
Anniversary workshop with Manu and Stefanie
Yin and Yang yoga practice
The qualities of Yin and Yang combine the approaches our work at KALAA Yoga Berlin has been based on for the past 10 years: Warmth, strength and light as well as softness, care and surrender. The balance between Yin and Yang creates a healthy yoga practice, in which we don’t only pay attention to the body but also get to our heart.
After our anniversary workshop we will drink a toast to 10 years of KALAA Yoga Berlin.
Sunday, 5th September: 14.00 –17.00 with Kristin
Slowing down the practice: Gentle techniques, Restorative Yoga, Meditation
Gentle yoga techniques help us balance our daily routine and can be an addition to dynamic yoga or other sports. Slow movement sequences alternate with moments of silence, where the body is placed in restorative poses. Using various yoga props, we support the body to relax and let go. With meditation and breathing techniques we stimulate internal reflection and release tension physically and mentally.
Friday, 10th September: 14.00 –17.00 with Katharina
Yoga outside the box – Move, play, invert, challenge
In this workshop we will amplify our imagination of what yoga can be. We will play with different movement qualities, gravity, inversions and challenging sequences, which even push the boundaries of the yoga mat.
Sunday, 12th September: 10.00 –12.30 with Stefanie
The body as a temple – Yoga as a holistic system
Yoga implies a holistic approach, ranging from dynamic Kriyas to the silence of meditation. We will experience this notion using the example of the Koshas and tap into different yogic concepts and symbols. We will practice how to set energy locks (Mudra, Bandha) in Asana practice and heighten our inner vibration with Pranayama and Mantra.
Sunday, 12th September: 14.00 –17.00 with Janine
Yin Yoga is a slow, regenerating yoga method. It invites us to ease down and pause. This practice stimulates the calming branch of the nervous system, which serves metabolism, regeneration and resilience. The body is guided into seated and reclined poses, which are held for three to ten minutes. The connective tissues (fascia) are gently opened and elongated. The support of the floor allows you to let go and experience deep levels of relaxation and clarity.
