Il famoso Stu Girling di Purple Valley Ashtanga Yoga a Goa, India, finalmente a Milano! 🙂

Rinomato per tutte le interviste che fa ai piu grandi insegnanti di Ashtanga e non solo!

Stuart e’ il fondatore del famoso sito e canale YouTube loveyogaanatomy.com. Negli ultimi 7 anni ha insegnato anatomia relativa allo yoga nei teacher trainings e in workshops in giro per il mondo. Pratica da 15 anni, e’ laureato in discipline scientifiche nello studio della salute (BSc with Hons in Health Studies), e negli ultimi 10 anni ha offerto Therapeutic Bodywork (lavoro terapeutico sul corpo) esclusivamente per praticanti di yoga. La filosofia di fondo che guida quello che condivide e’ che la conoscenza e’ di nessun valore a meno che non possiamo capire come usarla ed avere un uso per essa. Tenendo presente tutto ciò, i workshops che offre si focalizzano su:
* cosa ci rende individuali/particolare
* come possiamo capire i nostri limiti e restrizioni
* come possiamo evitare infortuni e creare equilibrio

Stuart cerca di portare piu divertimento e sperimentazione funzionale in ogni workshop e sottolinea l’importanza di capire il concetto al posto di scassarsi la testa con i dettagli.

~*~

I workshops introducono concetti anatomici in un modo accessibile e divertente, molto pratici con l’intenzione di dare l’opportunità’ ai studenti di scoprire quei muscoli e zone del corpo che li limitano, dimostrando modi in cuoi possono lavorare su quelle zone con piu specificità’. L’idea e’ che tramite maggior comprensione di come diverse parti del corpo influenzano le posture finali, studenti o insegnanti possono imparare a liberare zone chiuse, creare sequenze piu efficienti e riducendo il rischio di stressare zone vulnerabili muovendosi nel modo giusto. I workshops sono adatti a tutti gli stili di yoga perché al posto di guardare l’allineamento specifico ad uno stile di yoga, Stuart prende la strada per esplorare cosa sta ostacolando il raggiungimento di un allineamento desiderato. Ogni studente di ogni livello e’ soddisfatto dandogli informazione in strati multipli e dando la possibilità’ ai studenti di esplorare in un modo pratico al proprio livello.

Programma:

Sabato 20 Ottobre | 10-13 | Le Anche
Andremo a vedere com’e costruito l’articolazione dell’anca e le differenze in ogni individuo. Andremo a vedere i muscoli attorno alle anche e come influenzano i movimenti in certe direzioni. Svilupperemo questi concetti con l’esplorazione pratica di certi gruppi di posture: piegamenti in avanti, rotazione dell’anca e adduzione e abduzione dell’anca.

Sabato 20 Ottobre | 14-17 | Le Spalle
Qui esamineremo il cingolo scapolare e l’articolazione della spalla, i fattori che influenzano la gamma di movimento e la possibilità’ di infortuni. Discussioni e implementazione pratica di posture relative alla spalla, ad esempio posture di equilibrio sulle mani, cane a testa in giu, chaturanga, binding (avvolgimento del braccio attorno a ginocchio o gamba), mani in preghiera dietro la schiena.

Domenica 21 Ottobre | 10-13 | Colonna Vertebrale e Articolazione Sacro Iliaca
Con la comprensione di com’e fatta la colonna vertebrale e dei muscoli attorno, diventano evidenti i tipi di movimenti che si possono fare in certe zone ed i potenziali infortuni. Il gruppo di posture che andremo ad esplorare e discutere sono: inarcamenti e torsioni e l’importanza dell’integrazione dei movimenti in altre articolazioni importanti dell’anca e spalle.

Domenica 21 Ottobre | 14-17 | Fascia e Biotensegrita’
C’e molto interesse tra le recenti informazioni sulla fascia e come potrebbe influenzare la pratica di yoga. In questo workshop esploreremo cosa si intende per fascia, a cosa serve e in che modo possiamo usare il nostro apprezzamento della fascia. Inoltre, andremo a vedere un modello proposto (Biotensegrita’) per cercare di capire come possiamo incorporare questa conoscenza in una spiegazione piu comprensiva sul movimento e la stabilita’ del corpo umano. Il componente pratico di questo workshop esplora la connettività’ e l’integrazione del corpo.

ENGLISH VERSION

The famous Stu Girling of Purple Valley Ashtanga Yoga in Goa, India, finally in Milan for the very first time! 🙂

Stuart is founder of the popular loveyogaanatomy.com website and youtube channel and has been teaching yoga related anatomy for the last 7 years both on teacher trainings and international workshops. He has been practicing yoga for 15 years, has a BSc Hons in Health Studies and for the last 10 years has been offering Therapeutic Bodywork exclusively for yoga practitioners. The underlying philosophy that guides what he shares is that knowledge is of no value unless we can understand how to use it and have use for it. With this in mind the workshops he offers focus on: what makes us individual, how can we understand our limitations and restrictions and how can we avoid injury and create balance. Stuart endeavours to bring as much fun and practical experimentation into every workshop and emphasises the importance of getting to grips with the concepts rather that getting bogged down in the detail.
(traduzione in italiano a breve)

~*~

The workshops introduce anatomical concepts in an accessible and fun way and are very practically based with the intention of allowing students to discover those muscles and areas of the body that are restricting them and demonstrating ways that they can work on those areas with more specificity. The idea is that through greater understanding of how different areas of the body influence the finished postures students or teachers can learn release restricted areas, to sequence more efficiently and also reduce the risk of taking stress into vulnerable areas by moving in the right places. The workshops are suitable for all styles of yoga because rather that looking at specific alignment that might relate to one style or the other I take the route of exploring what might stop you achieving a desired alignment. All level of student is catered for by providing the information in multiple layers and allowing students to practically explore at their own level.

Program:
Saturday October 20th | 10-1pm | Hips
Looks at the construction of the hip joint and how individuals may differ. The muscles around the joint and how they will influence movements in certain directions. Expanding on these concepts with practical exploration of groups of postures under the headings of Forward folding, hip rotations and hip ab/adductions.

Saturday October 20th | 2-5pm | Shoulders
Here we examine the shoulder girdle and shoulder joint, issues that influence range of motion and the potential for injury. Discussion and practical implementation of shoulder related postures such as, arm balances, down dog, chaturanga, binding, reverse prayer.

Sunday October 21st | 10-1pm | Spine & SI Joint
By understanding the construction of the spine and the surrounding muscles it becomes evident as to the types of movements that it is designed to perform in certain areas as well as the potential mechanism of injury. The groups of postures discussed and explored practically are backbends and twists, and the importance of the integration of movements at other major joints of hips and shoulders.

Sunday October 21st | 2-5pm | Fascia & Biotensegrity
There is lots of interest in the emerging information about fascia and how it might influence the yoga practice. In this workshop we explore what is meant by fascia, what its purpose is and what use we can make of our growing appreciation of fascia. We also look at a proposed model (biotensegrity) for trying to understand how we might incorporate this knowledge into a more comprehensive explanation of human movement and stability. The practical component of this workshop explores connectivity and integrated bodies.

Her yogic journey began in 2000 as a student of Swami Nirmal (now at the Satyananda Centre in London) at the Fitness First gym in Kensal Rise, London. She experienced various teachers in different Fitness Firsts in Central London and around Clapham Junction before changing gyms and meeting Alexa Kho at LA FItness in Piccadilly Circus, London. Christiane attended Alexa's Anusara classes as well as her workshops. In January 2011 she enrolls in a 200hr Vinyasa Flow Teacher Training course with Rebecca Ffrench at YogaLondon. Vinyasa Flow is a modern form of yoga that comes from Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga and follows Sri K Pattabhi Jois. She quickly become passionate of this discipline and wants to deepen her knowledge; this brings her to meet and attend many workshops with Stewart Gilchrist, Shiva Rea, John Scott, Danny Paradise...all very famous teachers around the world. Being in the presence of such teachers is a significant experience for Christiane, in terms of her yogic journey, personal transformation and growth as well as understanding of yoga. After 11years in London, she moves to Milan to deepen and continue her journey. In Milan she teaches privately (1:1 and group classes) as well as in various yoga and dance centers.
