Cihangir Yoga invites you to join for a heart opening weekend with Ekin Teymen, that aims at building a bridge between your "on" and "off" the mat yoga practices.
Backbends can be both physically and emotionally challenging! During this two day workshop, you will gently and safely move towards a deep opening of your heart!
On a physical level, during this two day workshop we will gently and safely move towards deep backbending asanas by mindfully creating space across the front of the body and actively counteract our everyday sitting posture.
Our posture reflects how we look at and respond to the world so on a more subtle level we will explore the implications of heart-openers on ourselves and on our everyday life and focus on what it means to act from the heart.
Day 1: Journey Inward
On day 1, you will focus on our “on the mat” practice by preparing your body for deep backbends. We will gently move the body to create space across the front of the body while integrating the necessary muscles that will keep us stay centered and strong.
On a deeper level, we will work with our "intention" and have an honest connection with our body and ourselves and try to see and work with the obstacles that prevent us from having an open heart. From that vulnerable but strong place we will try to respond with kindness.
Day 2: Journey Outward
On day 2, you will build upon the first day by getting into deeper backbends including inversions and partner work!
It is essential to be sensitive about not just our needs but also the needs of the ones that we interact with. We will use the connection that we have with our body to reflect upon others.
Ekin is a highly skilled CY teacher with a deep and passionate “on” and “off” the mat practice that will inspire you to new levels in yoga and in life!
See you on the mat!
