JAMBO DRAGON

We are so excited to bring this insanely awesome guy to NYC, save the date and get this booked!!!

OCTOBER 1ST AND 2ND 2022

Jambo is a multi-disciplinary practitioner with special interests in biomechanics and psycho-spiritual practices. He is one of the few selected Forrest Yoga Guardians who share the teachings of Forrest Yoga practices as close to their original form. Jambo’s method of teaching is fun and very light with the idea that we need these qualities in order to work with our shadows effectively. His style is deliberately memorable and he enjoys to work with the injuries that are in the room so that we all learn in real time.

He frequently travels teaching workshops based on Forrest Yoga, Functional Anatomy and Native practices of the Medicine People. When he is not teaching workshops he stays close to the workshop location to deliver private sessions for bodywork based on his multi-disciplinary practice of structural alignment, muscles testing and classical East Asian medicine. As a Forrest Yoga Guardian and travelling assistant to Ana Forrest, he is committed to delivering the healing practice of Forrest Yoga in its most authentic form. He supplements asana workshops with sessions on functional anatomy, neuro-science, applied kinesiology and structural bodywork.

1st Oct 12pm

The Nectar Of Pleasure

Pleasure is an antidote to pain and by exploring how pleasure shows up within us enables us to be guided to discern good and bad pain.

During this workshop Jambo explains the anatomy of pleasure and how to know if a stretch is beneficial or not. By learning how to tune into the receptors in our muscles we can quickly learn and re-learn the way we read comfort, healing and integration.

12-1.30pm Ceremony (songs, mantras & pranayama)
Break

1.45-3.15pm The Pleasure of Back Bends
This play-shop is built on the principles of Forrest Yoga sequencing and biomechanics as a method to experience all the sensations that are beneficial in knowing when it comes to cultivating therapeutic or advanced back bends.

This is a mixed level class with spaces to work on hands on assists which can be given verbally or with touch.

3.15-4pm Meditation

2nd Oct 11am
Unfuck Your Back

Sitting has been challenged in recent years because of the ways that we have been urged to live (& sit at home). This workshop informs practitioners on the effectiveness of sitting and the problems that can be caused when we sit incorrectly. Walking is an inherent part of the human experience but we do less of it now, this in turn has huge effects on our body.

Expect to examine yoga poses and hands on assists that are beneficial for tight hips, rounded shoulders, weak cores and stiff backs!

11-12 Ceremony (songs, mantra, pranayama)
12.15-1.45 Asana for right hips shoulders and back pain
1.45-2 break
2-3 techniques to engage stability in the places that support walking, sitting and standing.

£65 per workshop
£120 for both
£110 early bird if booked before June 30th.

OCTOBER 1ST AND 2ND.

ARMBALANCE + INVERSIONS

For beginners

Armbalanacing makes you concentrate there's no doubt about that! And in doing so brings you right into the moment, thus making it a very mindful and centering practise. There is nothing like the feeling when you nail your first Side Crow or Funky Pigeon and a little party goes off in your head, its an amazing feeling, something that show you that you can, when you really thought you couldn't. These can then be incorporated into Vinyasa Flows or done on their own to improve concentration and strength. So jump on this fun and liberating workshop with Tess and get your hands planted for some arm balance fun.

SATURDAY July 30th. 2-4PM. £20

TRUTH + TRUST

WITH TESS

Do you know what motivates you? Do you care? Are you inquistive as to the inner landscape of your mind? Are you willing to go deeper into your self? Perhaps touch on that Shadow self you've been turning away from?....
In this workshop with Tess you will use movement to explore how you think in the moment, and how you react mentally to your own responses. 
This will be illuminating, if you let it.
Yoga is about self study, discipline and knowing the self and in this Asana based workshop we try to peel back the layers that keep the real you hidden. Are you prepared to go there?.......
You know with Tess there will be planty of laughs as well, so come and enjoy this thought provoking afternoon.
