Jason Crandell Weekend Workshop

“The Power of Precision” Series - A technique bootcamp for flow practitioners and teachers with Jason Crandell

“It is teachers and practitioners like Jason that will take the art of teaching yoga to its next step.” Rodney Yee

In these workshops you will learn how alignment and attention to detail cultivates greater depth and ease in your flow practice—from arm-balance to hip-openers, from backbends to inversions. Said to have a “knack for explaining subtle movements in a way everyone can understand” (Yoga Journal), Jason will help you deepen your practice—teaching you to expand your edge, open your body, and stay connected to your essence. Each workshop will begin with a brief discussion of related anatomy and energetic patterns and move into a smart, satisfying flow practice.

Awakening, Strengthening and Integrating Your Core

In this session you will awaken deep sensations and intelligence in the core of your body. In doing so, you will explore how using your core muscles creates more integrated alignment in your entire body and sets the stage for greater steadiness and ease (yes, ease!) in all of your poses.

Releasing the Spine With Sidebends, Twists, and Forward Bends

Sidebends, twists, and forward bends have the power to release the spine and quiet the mind. In this workshop you will find greater depth, ease, and efficiency in these poses while you cultivate a deep sense of calm and contentment in your mind.

Opening, Aligning, and Strengthening your Shoulders

We often demand a lot of our shoulders in our daily life and in our yoga practice without a second thought. But shoulders and hips are complicated, sensitive structures that are prone to injury when not well cared for. In this workshop, you will learn how to work your shoulders safely —increasing their strength, alignment, and mobility—in a wide-range of poses.

The Ecstasy (and hopefully not much) Agony of Hip-Openers and Arm Balances

The grace of arm balancing, as with so many things in life, comes from balance not force. Similarly, the hips, which often hold the key to arm balancing, respond best to smooth, slow unfolding rather than brief bursts of zealous pushing. In this workshop you will untie those knots in your hips and learn how to approach arm-balances with patience.
