Journey into Backbending 18/279
Tutor: Zoe Knott
Date: 11th November 2018
Time: 09:00 - 15:00
This day will use demonstration, discussion, pairs, group work, class work, self discovery, experiential practice and a short lecture to teach the kinesiology (body movement, agonists, antagonists), principles and precautions and resources for backbends. We will discuss why we teach backbends (physically and esoterically), how to approach then in the safest way and work through the specific stages of backbends.
Handouts will be emailed after the workshop.
Zoe Knott is a Diploma Course Tutor and also the DCT Training Officer. Over 30 years of yoga practice with many different teachers from a variety of traditions has resulted in Zoe's eclectic style of teaching that has been influenced by all those with whom she has worked. Her fundamental approach is to build strength as the cornerstone of practice and from there all poses become possible. Asana are broken down and analysed. Zoe looks at the muscles that need to be strong or flexible and works in detail gradually building up the components of a pose.
Zoe has taken the additional BWY modules in Pranayama and Pregnancy. As well as running regular yoga classes, the Foundation Course, Teacher Training and travelling round the country giving Workshops, Zoe runs regular yoga holidays.
This day will be taught in the Dance and Drama Studio on the first floor of the Universal Hall. There is an onsite cafe or you can BYO lunch. Hot drinks will be provided.
You must bring your own yoga mat and props as none will be provided.
Universal Hall, Findhorn
