Going Deeper | 8 day course spring 2019

With Claire Hesp & Daniela Gfeller

Going Deeper into Your Yoga and Life

Enrich your practice and understanding of Yoga and learn how to connect yoga to everyday life questions and issues with our 8-day Going Deeper course for curious, intermediate and inspired students.

This in-depth course will help you determine specific personal approaches that will make your practice fit your life. The focus of this course is on your own practice and understanding.

  • Are you interested to explore yoga in depth, outside a teacher training?
  • Do you want to learn how to connect yoga to your everyday life questions and issues?
  • Fine-tune your personal practice?
  • Explore the therapeutic aspects of your yoga practice?

Then our Going Deeper course is just the thing for you!

What we will explore:

Start each day with a 2,5-hour practice & workshop that includes detailed exploration of both basic and intermediate asanas, including alignment principles, energetic actions, benefits, preparatory anatomy in relation to movement-oriented yoga. In addition, we will explore the art of seeing bodies and working with partners.

Expand | Each day explore a topic integral to yoga, but not usually covered in day-to-day classes. We will take classic yoga philosophy out of the books onto the mat – and into your life!

Integrate | We will also show you how you can understand sequencing and build practices to address personal needs, such as insomnia, overwork, stress, back problems, etc. We help you to build practices that fit your life individually.

Restore | Every day we will include pranayama (breathing) practices and restorative hatha yoga. You will find how healing, a full spectrum practice can be to your whole being.

OMwork

  • We will offer you reading and listening assignments as (h)om(e)-work. And suggest practice routines you can build at home or in class. You’ll be asked to read some other articles and possibly some books.

About the teachers

Claire Hesp

Claire has been teaching dance and performing whilst traveling the world since 2004, learning from great teachers and cultures along the way. Her path to yoga evolved around the same time, noticing how yoga helped her not only on a physical level but mentally even more so. In 2011 Claire completed the Vinyasa Flow ttc at Brahmani Yoga in Goa, India with Julie Martin.

Yoga to her is a path of self discovery…bit by bit peeling off layers to come closer towards the connection of true self. She keeps evolving and learning through diverse workshops, classes, her own practice, life itself and the connection with the people that surround her.

Claire teaches dynamic vinyasa flow as well as light slow flow and restorative yoga. Her classes contain a great sense of calm and positivity and allow room for play and self discovery. She has a great body awareness which she is eager to share with her students offering various modifications combined with hands on adjustments to help them.

She uses themes and repetition allowing her students to get out of their minds and into their bodies. Claire believes everyone should find their own path within yoga and offers people a safe and friendly environment to do so.
