International Workshops

Yoga Detour Method Intensive Ireland

Cafe Move Cork | Saturday June 9, 12-6pm | Sunday June 10, 10am-5pm

Saturday, June 9 - 12 pm to 6 pm

Yoga Detour is known for seamlessly blending physiology and biomechanics with traditional postures. As the creator of this Teacher Training method, Cecily specializes in bridging the gap between functional movement and yoga asana. During this deep dive into the Detour method, she will explore the four main pillars of this approach to practice: 

  1. Working from the Centre - spinal mechanics, centration and core stability
  2. Integrating lower body strength and mobility into standing postures
  3. Integrating upper body strength and mobility into backbends and arm balances
  4. Floor Play - finding mobility from the group up

Cecily will demonstrate how to layer these foundational elements of a Detour-style practice into a complete class, honouring the needs of each student while creating a balanced and informed full-body experience.

Sunday, June 10 - 10 am to 5 pm

Anatomy of Movement - 10 am to 1 pm

What is the relationship between our musculoskeletal anatomy and the nervous system? How is our nervous system informed by the fascial matrix and vice versa? In what ways do these systems interact to create our personal “body maps”? This workshop will reveal the intricacies of what is happening between the surface of skin and muscle. We’ll explore concepts such as biotensegrity and body blind spots using mindful movement as a vehicle with which to appreciate the wonder of the human body.

Relationships of Movement - 2 pm to 5 pm

On the microcosmic level, we can identify relationships in the way our muscles talk to each other, community to produce movement. When we understand the “push” and “pull” forces at play within is, we access a deeper appreciation for how the body is designed. On the macrocosmic level, relationships of movement can be seen in how we interact with our environment: exploring space, contact and play to reveal new layers of potential in our practice. When we move with both intra-personal (within ourselves) and inter-personal (between each other) perspectives, we can begin to understand how yoga truly is a practice of union and connection.

Lower Body Explorations

CHELTENHAM PILATES & YOGA, GLOUCESTERSHIRE UK | JUNE 16, 2018 2-5PM

Rediscover the foundation of movement starting from the ground up! This workshop will bring new awareness to the feet, ankles, knees and hips through various means of joint preparation and mobilisation. We’ll wake up the hamstrings and glutes to transform standing postures and examine the relationship between pelvis and spine to keep the lower back pain-free. Expect to walk away with a sense of support from your legs that is altogether grounding and liberating. As a strength and mobility specialist, Cecily helps her students rediscover their potential for strong, balanced movement both on and off the mat.

UPPER BODY EXPLORATIONS

CHELTENHAM PILATES & YOGA, GLOUCESTERSHIRE UK | JUNE 17, 2018 2-5PM

Learn how to move with strength, awareness and precision in this in-depth exploration of upper body strength and stability. Zeroing in on the wrists, shoulders and thoracic spine from there we’ll delve into scapular stability in order to bring more integrity into sun salutations, arm balances, backbends and inversions. Students will leave with a renewed appreciation for what their bodies are capable of and with tools and confidence to pursue new movement goals like push-ups and handstands.
