Empowered Posture Work

Empowered Posture and Movement Workshop
with Ervin Menyhárt
Saturday 15th July 2017 11.00am-4.30pm
ICE, Parkside,
Coventry CV1 2NE

We will delve into the relationship of alignment, movement and stillness in posture work, tapping into some of the revelations regarding movement chains and body opening.

The main objective is to enable you to get more out of your training. Empowering postures for greater effectiveness and deepening of stretches will be the main subjects. Extended exploration of back bending and spinal twists will be a significant part of this workshop.
It will be suitable for all levels of practice beyond total beginners, and highly recommended to trainee teachers and those already teaching.

We will explore the alignment principles, the movements and stillness in the light of the four phases – enter, engage, empower/release and exit. Observing these phases in action, we can turn to our advantage the differences between ‘postural’ (or structural) musculature and ‘phasic’ (or movement) musculature. These different muscle structures have different fibres, and respond to exercise and rest differently. Separating them out and addressing their needs accordingly will make a substantial contribution to improving the effectiveness of your practice.

We will do a lot of work in pairs and small groups, looking at details that can have great effects on the integrity and depth of a posture. We will also look in detail into the connective movements, to ensure we ‘step into the right place’ to establish solid foundations, and explore the movements within the various asana, leading to stronger engagement, deeper access and more effective release.

The cost of the workshop will be £45 per person, £35 concessions for registered Atiyoga Trainee Teachers, those on MTP programmes, and full time students. Places are limited, and will be allocated on ‘first-come-first-served’ basis.

Please make cheques payable to E Menyhart, and send to 16 Broomfield Road, Earlsdon, Coventry CV5 6JX
