Fly Like Hanuman with Hayley Steadman
Saturday 29 April 2023 // 1.00pm – 3.30pm // $60 In Person & Live Stream
Join Hayley Steadman for this workshop exploring Hanumasana (full front splits) and learn the story of Hanuman and his adventures.
The myths behind yoga asanas are intended to inspire and enhance our yoga practice. They can bring a new depth of learning and understanding, and remind us that our practice is not only an opportunity to work with our bodies, but also with our minds and hearts.
In this workshop you will learn about Hanuman and his journey of overcoming his fears, step by step, and taking a big leap of faith to help others. It is a story about devotion, commitment and overcoming doubts. When listening to the story we may resonate with challenges we face in our own daily lives, and hopefully be inspired and uplifted by the adventures of Hanuman.
We will prepare the body, and mind, to practice Hanumasana (full front splits). Through a carefully constructed and playful sequence we will explore how to strengthen the legs and abdomen, release tension in the hips and hamstrings, and learn how to modify and support yourself using props — and overcome any obstacles that might stand in our way!
This workshop is perfect for anyone who is interested in this particular asana, wants to develop their understanding of anatomy or is interested in challenging themselves in a safe environment.
Not suitable for complete beginners.
