The BOYS (of Yoga) are back in town
Back by popular demand, Michael James Wong is bringing Boys of Yoga back to Dubai for special weekend of workshops to celebrate yoga and to bring more guys to the mat.
Note: this weekend is open to all! It's not just for "the boys" ... but an excuse to bring any boys you know who might be interested in playing with Yoga!
Thursday Jan 25, 7-9pm: BOYS OF YOGA, Masterclass
Join Michael James Wong & Omar Sultani as we move from sweat to surrender. This masterclass is for everybody; girls, boys, big, small, tall, short, stiff, stretchy, newbies and seasoned sun saluters (and anything in between). An open vinyasa class that will move from the sweaty and strong poses, to the subtle surrender of the practice.
Friday Jan 26, 11am – 1.30pm: Asana Addict (Power Yoga & Inversions Workshop)
A fun-filled workshop where we acknowledge, indulge and explore the physical side to the practice with advanced arm balances & progressive sequencing. Step in and explore the details and principals of the alignment necessary to fly. Instead of pushing through the pose we focus on the anatomical alignment to work smarter, not harder. We break down the details of 3 arm balances; Crow, Koundinyasana & Astavrakrasana, then we’ll learn to link them together in flow and flight.
Friday Jan 26, 2.30 – 5pm: The Way of the Warrior (Power Yoga Masterclass)
A Power Vinyasa Masterclass that honours that builds the heat and fire of the practice. This is a vinyasa flow class that will explore the strength, courage and kindness of the Warrior and challenge your mindfulness throughout a long and strong, slow dynamic ladder flow. Through controlled motion and presence in the alignment, this class will clear the mind, empower the body and inspire the spirit.
Saturday Jan 27, 11am-1.3pm: How to Build a Bridge (Back-bending yoga workshop)
To build a strong backbend, you have to build a solid foundation. This workshop focuses on the 3 key components necessary to deepen, open and develop your spinal flexion. Once the foundations are built we’ll explore different ways to move the body in bridges, wheels, wheel variations & drop backs. The is a great workshop for knowledge seekers and asana addicts.
Saturday Jan 27, 2.30 – 5pm: Breathe In, Bliss Out (Restorative Masterclass)
The exhale is everything. It's how we create space, it's how we let go. In this class we will spend time with the breath & body in this gentle restorative & meditation flow. A beautifully slow practice that will focus on the bliss of the exhale while moving the body simply to find the sweetness of the release. This class will focus on longer, deeper & restorative poses and end with a meditation.
