Detox Flow (hips & twists)

Opening the hips begins by cultivating awareness of the challenges we hold in our hips and pelvic region. While we work to release this tension, we can begin to relax and strengthen the quads, the inner and outer muscles of the thighs and also stretch the hamstrings.
While unlocking this area of our body, we will also free the spine with twists which can infuse the body with vitality and well being, releasing enormous amounts of tension.
Twists are associated with toning and rejuvenating the abdominal and pelvic regions. When these regions are engaged, blood flow naturally increases and toxins are released – a natural internal massage. Relaxing and strengthening these areas releases lower back tension and frees limitation in the neck and shoulders.
Sequences of Hip Openers will liberate tension commonly held in this area, while twists will free your spine and promote detoxification through internal massage.
This Hips and Twists workshop is great for beginners to advanced practitioners and teachers, who want to learn how to up-level in creative ways and also provide a safe foundation for their beginning students.

Facing Embracing Fears (arm balancing/inversion)
Flying is like a great fire of courage – once that flame is ignited – it never goes out. Arm Balances and Inversions can be some of yoga’s most challenging yet fun poses to practice. Learn to safely defy gravity, starting with a single breath.
In this workshop you will strengthen your core to better support your arm balances. We will build upper body strength which will help support and build healthier wrists, elbows and shoulders. We will guide you to engage the legs, so they don’t take refuge in Savasana.
Begin cultivating awareness of your body in an upside down position and moving through space, while surfing from one pose to another. Yoga should be satisfying and fun, not a chore of full of fear. This workshop will launch you there.

Anahata Chakra Vinyasa (backbends)

Flow through a sequence of postures that will bring your heart chakra back into balance and complete harmony. We will explore many different ways of working with and without props, along with physical, psychological and spiritual aspects of a backbend.
Your heart will dance through the fine art of balancing and effortless surrender.
We will work on bringing more awareness to pranayama and ujjayi breathing in this workshop, acknowledging the lungs as an integral part 
of this body region, as well as the role our breath-work plays in the practice.

Rock & Roll Vinyasa

Great rock n roll sing along tunes (maybe a good disco beat here and there) to lift the spirit, is often times a link and connection to the pure joy that is innately inside each of us.
A fun filled vinyasa class for all levels of practitioner to come and play and dance and sing, where you are in your body and in your practice.
No matter the challenges life is offering you, here’s an opportunity to let go and just flow.

About Les:

Les owes his new life to yoga. It is because of this he gifts his yoga, and his life to others. 
A life that journeyed Les from rock bottom to a world of endless possibility, he infuses fun, laughter, inspiration and transformation into all of his classes. His appreciation for all that is, radiates in all that he does.

Completing his teacher training in 2005 with the renowned Ana Forrest and assisting her with subsequent trainings, his studies are steeped in Forrest tradition. He has completed several trainings with Tias Little from which he has acquired much of his alignment and technique cues, as well as a firm foundation in the 8 Fold path of Buddhism. Les’ flow yoga has now reached the USA, Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and soon to reach the UK and Europe. He has been featured twice in Yoga Journal magazine, interviewed by Darren Main, author of Yoga and The Path of The Urban Mystic, and by Joe Sarti of Voice America – Your Life Without Limits.

Les weaves in the 8 limbs of yoga, keeping the traditional styles a part of his classes while opening a window into our global cultural shift. 
He provides the opportunity to heal your heart, sweat, sing, laugh, cry and just let go. Many classes have music. You’re encouraged to modify throughout, doing what you need to take care of your practice and allowing the ’rasa’ (the sap or juice) to flow freely.
