When and Where
December 14-21, 2013 Montezuma, Costa Rica
The workshop will take place in the most beautiful setting: Anamaya Body Mind and Spirit Resort, located in Montezuma, Costa Rica.
This will be an active retreat in a relaxed, friendly environment focusing on discovering the silk, being in the air, and playing while getting a workout. You will leave inspired and energized!
The aerial class is open to all levels: beginners, intermediates, and advanced. With time and practice, almost anyone can learn the basics, but beginners will get more out of the class if they have some yoga experience, Pilates, gyrotonic, aerial yoga, rock climbing, or other skills/experience that work with core strength and flexibility. We will also have some time to explore the Vayu Swing (aerial yoga)
2 afternoons during the week, we will have a GYROKINESIS® class.
This movement system allow one to work on the entire body through seven natural elements of spinal movement: forward, backward, left side, right side, left twist, right twist and circular, as well as all other joint articulation. This approach systematically and gently works the joints and muscles through rhythmic and undulating movements. These movements stimulate the body's internal organs while different corresponding breathing patterns are integrated along with the movements.
Fluidity is the key, postures are smoothly and harmoniously connected through the use of breath, making exercises appear and feel more like a dance and swimming than like traditional yoga. The corresponding breathing patterns executed during every movement stimulate the nervous system, open up the energy pathways and oxygenate the blood. Open to all levels.
