Masterclass: The Cosmic Dance

The practice of yoga has much more to offer than I can fit into a 60 or 75 minute class. That is why I put together this three-part masterclass. During these three masterclasses we will explore a fuller range of the yogic practice, offering a thorough asana practice, complimented by meditation, pranayama and philosophy. During this masterclass you will be taken on a journey through the body, soul and mind.
We will explore the three global acts of the universe; creation, maintenance and dissolution.

Yoga Foundations Masterclass

Join Lars Ekm for this in depth workshop which will cover the basics of inversions, an asana lab and some yogic principles. This workshop will focus on the important stuff that is often asked and cued in a regular class but the teacher does not have enough time to explain the practices in detail. This workshop will be different, we will dive deep.
 
Inversions
This workshop will focus on the basics of inversions. We will cover all the important stuff that you need to know if you want to master headstand and crow. . Having mastered and worked on the principles taught in this workshop the progression to more advanced inversions like forearm stand or handstand will be much easier.
 
Asana Lab
Lars will compliment the workshop with an asana lab. We will be looking at a selection of different asana and take them apart.
 
Yogic Principles
Throughout the workshop we will look at some of the overarching principles of the yoga practice like ujjayi (ocean breath) and bandhas (locks). T
