With a combined 1700+ hours of training with founder of the Kaiut Yoga Method, Francisco Kaiut, Leap’s Certified Kaiut Yoga teachers have collaborated to bring you this very special event. Leap’s Kaiut Immersion Weekend includes 3 sessions that will explore the role the three major “girdles” (joints), shoulders, hips and ankles/feet, play in your overall mobility and joint health. Whether from over use, lack of use, injury or just regular use, our joints tend to lose some of their functionality. This can have a major impact on your quality of life. This practice also has a very positive effect on the nervous system. Grounding the nervous system can provide relief from anxiety and depression. When our brain feels safe and at ease throughout the practice this will stimulate the body’s natural healing intelligence.
Upon completing this series you will have a deeper understanding of the benefits this style of yoga can offer YOUR BODY and MIND for many years to come. Kaiut Yoga is appropriate for all ages and body types.
Each session will include:
* Kaiut Practice (Shoulders, Hips, Ankles/Feet)
* Learn proper use of modifications and props for YOUR BODY
* Discussion & Demonstration of Poses
* Q & A with Instructors
Friday 5:30-7:30pm The Shoulder Girdle with Colette Nalley
The shoulders are a highly sensitive section of the body. Connected to the thoracic spine (middle-upper back), it is the part of the spine that ages the fastest. Thus, we often notice rigidity, weakness, and loss of mobility in this area of the body first. In this practice we will uncover and explore restrictions in the shoulder girdle and move in the direction of improved mobility and restore the shoulder’s natural function.
Saturday 12-2pm The Hip Girdle with Molly Oser
Saturday’s practice will focus on the movement in the hips from the front groin through the full range of the hip musculature. This practice will include movement throughout the entire leg and together we will watch the effects on the low back and the easing of the spine. When coupled with the practices on Friday and Sunday, we will begin to feel and find a harmony; a moving as a whole body with less tension and a feeling of ease.
Sunday 12-2pm Ankle & Feet with Michéal Mitchell
The ankles and feet are the foundation (or building blocks) of almost every movement you make. Whether you want to continue or improve upon other forms of activity that make you smile like hiking, running, power vinyasa, cycling or maybe even something as simple as getting down on the floor to play with your pets, kids or grand-kids… you may discover loss of functionality/motion in your ankles and feet that you didn’t even know you had. This loss of mobility could have a considerable impact on your quality of life now, or in the future. You will gain awareness of the impact this has on every step you take and also how loss of mobility of ankles/feet reverberates throughout the entire body. You will gain an appreciation of how this practice can challenge and inspire… taking you through poses that utilize the range of motion Mother Nature intended you to have.
