Chaturanga Dandasana and Vinyasa Alignment Fundamentals with Sava
Chaturanga Dandasana (Four Limbed Staff Pose) is a major component of Ashtanga, Vinyasa, and Power Yoga, yet it is often rushed and applied to practice without focus on safe movement through this important transitional and strength building part of our practice.This workshop will commence with an examination of the shoulder girdle and setting key stabilising muscles to allow safe flow through chaturanga. The same principles can be applied to many of our postures which involve bearing weight into our shoulders – Adho Mukha Svanasana (Downward Facing Dog), Urdhava Danurasana (backbending), and Mukta Hasta Shirshasana (Headstand).
We will also examine alignment through foundational standing poses before concluding with yin yoga and pranayama to soothe and release our work. This workshop is suitable for beginners and regular practitioners wishing to build or maintain connection to safe practice.
Sava discovered Hatha and Iyengar Yoga in 1997 and was eventually drawn to the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga method in which he has maintained a committed daily practice since 2007. He teaches from this traditional lineage, yet continues to learn through modern Vinyasa teaching techniques and extends this combined knowledge through his class delivery.
Sava’s classes are focused and strong, continually guiding students to be present and conscious of the body/mind/breath connection in their practice.

Yin Yoga is a simple and quiet meditative practice that allows the cultivation of mindfulness, inward focus and surrender. With consistent practice, the level of mindfulness and ability to surrender developed in yin can carry over and deepen the yang practice.
