Following the Detour - Weekend Intensive

Downward Dog Yoga Centre, Toronto ON | March 24-25, 2018 | 1-6pm daily

Yoga Detour is known for seamlessly blending the science of physiology and biomechanics with traditional postures. As the Director of this teacher training method, Cecily specializes in bridging the gap between functional movement and yoga asana. In this workshop that is suitable to all levels—beginners as well as yoga teachers—she will delve into the building blocks of upper and lower body strength and provide tools for honing mobility in areas that are most often blocked, such as the spine and hips.

From there, Cecily will demonstrate how to layer these isolated, foundational elements into a complete yoga class that honours the needs of each student while creating a balanced and informed full-body experience.

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.

anatomy of movement

tribe yoga leith walk, edinburgh UK | June 23, 2018 2-4pm

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 all of these systems interact to create our personal “body maps”? This workshop with Cecily will reveal the intricacies of what is really happening beneath the surface of skin and muscle. We’ll explore concepts such a biotensegrity and body blindspots, using mindful movement as a vehicle with which to appreciate how truly fascinating the human body is.
