Yoga for Excellence in Presentation and Performance

Do you want more confidence and charisma, better poise and posture, more ease and excellence in your presentation and performance?
This yoga workshop could be for you.

Come to develop awareness and improvements in:

~ How you stand
~ How you breathe
~ The set of your shoulders
~ The alignment of the head and neck
~ The position of your upper spine

Your upper body posture, the freedom of movement in the upper spine, the tilt of the chest and back all contribute to the way you generate, project and receive social information.

In this workshop you’ll discover and extent the freedom of movement in all these area and learn simple yoga exercises to maintain the postural improvements that lead to greater confidence, poise, charisma and gravitas.

From a yoga energy perspective,All these factors affect the flow and circulation through the ‘chakras’ (energy centres), especially the ones associated with your physical presence, power, and communication.

Then you have your emotional balance and flow – this is a function of the flow of subtle vitality (Qi, Prana) which, according to Ayurveda And Oriental medicine, is governed by the Liver. We all know the expression ‘Liverish’ – which means irascible, angry, frustrated. Basically, when Liver energy is in disharmony, as well as impacting digestive functions, it creates frustration, anger and then sluggishness and low energy – when Liver energy is free and flowing brings good humour, clear thinking, effecting planning and a smooth emotional flow – the ideal state from which to deliver your best audition, performance or presentation.

This workshop will be an experiential journey through the best Yogic practices that detoxify and strengthen the ‘master-glands’ of the digestive system: Liver and Gallbladder. Healthy circulation in these organs Improves digestion, emotional balance, clarity, and decision making function. These practices include:

~ TAOIST YOGA self healing techniques to cleanse and energise the liver & gallbladder
~ KUNDALINI YOGA SEQUENCES – to detox abdominal organs and digestive system
~ MEXICAN SHAMANISTIC MOVEMENT for vigour and power.
~ HATHA YOGA sequences that strengthen circulation to the digestive tract

Along with the experience of the workshop, everyone can expect to learn a short specific sequence of movements and meditations ideally suited to audition preparation.
