Asana Clinic: Arm Balances
Saturday, September 29, 2018
12pm – 2pm
This workshop decodes arm balances by a step-by-step approach.
We start with the foundations to build core and arm strength and to open the hips, then move on to tackle the most common arm balances, such as crow, peacock, grasshopper, eight angle pose and selected variations. Find ease and comfort in arm balances by correct alignment and the concept of counter balancing. We finish with wrist and shoulder therapy to release any tension and to maintain healthy joints and muscles.
All levels welcome! No prior arm balance experience needed, the workshop is suitable for both beginning flyers as well as for experienced practitioners looking to refine their arm balance practice. Variations will be provided to different levels.
Prepare to laugh and play around, arm balances are all about freedom and fun!
Asana Clinic: Inversions
Sunday, September 30, 2018

Are you working with your inversions like headstand or forearm stand? Advance your inversion practice with Johanna.
This workshop will explore on activating and opening the required muscle groups for inversions, particularly on how to find core control, shoulder stability and hamstring openness. Variations will be offered to different levels and body types.
Inversions are among the most meditative yoga asanas requiring full attention of the body and the mind. Expect fun and empowering physical effort combined with blissful stillness of the mind – the magic of yoga! This workshop is suitable for yoga practitioners with a regular basic yoga practice who wish to learn and/or advance their inversion practice.

ABOUT JOHANNA LINDROOS
Originally from Finland, Johanna first encountered yoga when she was living in India in 2010. Amid digesting some bigger and smaller changes in life – changing countries and jobs as a new mother of two – yoga gradually became more and more important, offering moments of calmness and joy in an otherwise rollercoaster like existence. After settling down in Singapore, she continues to be fascinated by the physically demanding and spiritually nurturing practice, and is without doubt on a life-long path to practise and learn more.
Johanna completed her Yoga Alliance Certified 200-hour Hatha Yoga Teacher Training by Real Yoga Singapore in collaboration with the Kaivalyadhama Yoga Institute in Pune, India. She has complemented her training by certificate courses and workshops both in Asia and in Europe. Her practice and teaching is mostly influenced by her teachers at Real Yoga Singapore with whom she continues to practice on a regular basis. She has been teaching since her initial teacher training in 2013.
She loves creative yet disciplined sequences that energise the body and nourish the soul. Her classes are designed to be challenging and invigorating for students at all levels with an element of surprise and/or challenge and a lot of compassion. Through yoga she wishes to inspire others both on and off the mat, just like her teachers inspire her.
