The Principles of Functional Vinyasa: 2 hour Intensives with Angie Yeo, Oct 16 - 23

River Valley
October 16, 17, 18, 21, 22 & 23, 2024
9.30am - 11.30am

In this 2 hour intensive, we explore functional strength and mobility of the various anatomical regions of our body, and explore some of the yoga poses safely and intentionally. Each session's theme is as follows.

October 16: Hips Mobility
Explore the strength and mobility of the hip joint in all its dimensions, and explore ways to strengthen the musculature around the hip joints to help us find greater stability in our VInyasa practice. You will explore poses such as Hanumanasana (full splits), Padmasana (lotus), Seated Compass, and its associated variations.

October 17: Feet and Ankle Stability
Explore the musculature of the feet and ankles where we look at the intrinsic and extrinsic foot muscles, and how we can create greater resilience in those regions and enhance our single leg balances. You will be exploring various standing balancing poses and find ways to experience greater stability in these poses.

October 18: Backbending Fundamentals
This session focuses on strengthening the posterior chain of the body to cultivate a greater sense of equanimity in your backbends. We will explore poses such as Wheel, and its associated variations to find greater ease and balance in these poses.

October 21: Cultivate Resilience of the Abdominal Core
We will look at creating strength in our other dimensions of the core, and look at ways we can utilise the resilience of our muscular core to better support our spine. We will explore variations to some of the common poses in order to overtly create strength in our abdominal core - hence finding greater stability in poses more focused on upper body strength.

October 22: Shoulder Mobility
We will explore the mobility of the shoulder joint as a dynamic structure, and see how the mobility of our shoulders can help us in better upper back mobility and strength. You will be exploring binds in this practice, and see how to find a greater sense of openness in these category of poses.

October 23: Building Blocks of Arm Balances and Inversions
This session focuses on the fundamental techniques in order to better stabilise the shoulders as we move towards arm balances and inversions. You will expect to work through some shoulder strength and conditioning, followed by an exploration of some arm balances such as Bakasana (crow) and Parsva Bakasana (side crow), as well as inversions like Sirsasana A and Sirsasana B.

You may opt to join for a single session, or purchase a bundle of 6 classes. This intensive is suitable for practitioners who are looking to level up their practice, with more time and space to work into each region intentionally and to gain greater strength and mobility.

Angie's approach to the vinyasa practice emphasises heavily on anatomy and functional alignment. She strongly believes that advanced yoga poses can only be safely achieved through greater mastery of the simplest of poses and the smallest of details that comes with it. Her area of interest lies in anatomy and biomechanics underpinning the yoga practice, heavily influenced by her training with Jason Crandell. She seeks to ground her classes firmly in anatomical understanding, whether it is through her own further studies, or through consultations and ongoing education with physiotherapists, osteopaths, and exercise physiologists. She is also currently spending her time at a physiotherapist clinic to learn more about injuries and rehabilitation in a clinical setting. 

In all her classes and trainings, she strives to teach in a systematic and easily understood manner. Her trainings are crafted with the intention to provide teachers and students with specialised knowledge and instill greater confidence in them to embark on teaching yoga. Through her experience in leading multiple teacher trainings over the years, she believes in the importance of providing students with ongoing support and opportunities to further their growth beyond a standard 200-hr yoga teacher training curriculum, as well as the importance of having basic anatomical awareness underpinning the yoga practice to ensure a sustainable and injury-free practice.
