18- 19 April 2020 the amazing Lizette Pompa will visit us for the first time. Her teaching style incorporates strength and functional movement in different ways. Initially, Lizette came to yoga for the physical benefits, but today she also finds strength and empowerment through meditation and breathing exercises. Lizette has been teaching yoga for a number of years, from 2011 at Hot Yoga Uppsala in Sweden.
Yoga and empowering women are an ongoing project for her. At her studio in Uppsala, she wishes to inspire others to get physically and mentally strong while using traditional yoga mixed with kettlebells, functional movement, strength drills, and workouts.
The classes will be taught in English.
SAT 10-1230 ”Yoga Strength: How to add load to your yoga practice” 2,5hrs
Load will stimulate your tissues to adapt and become stronger. When our tissues are stronger, our body becomes resilient and therefore we are less likely to experience injuries. Only by adding loan can our tissues adapt and increase their tolerance. Come, play and learn how by using yoga blocks, towels or your water bottle you can become stronger. More load = stronger tissues = better yoga practice.
SAT 1330-1530 "A new approach to open your hips” 2hrs
What does it mean to "open our hips”? This workshop focuses on moving the hips in all directions and moving away from just external rotation. Our joints are designed to move. Learn how to access internal and external rotation, as well as flexion and extension. Get ready to wake up the muscles around your hips to find stability and strength.
SAT 16-18 "Hamstrings: Strengthen to Lengthen” 2hrs
If you have been doing yoga for some time, it probably means you have been doing a reasonable amount of forward folds. Strengthening the hamstrings helps to bring balance to our back body so that it doesn't live in an overly lengthened state. Get ready to work your muscles in their full range of motion to help them get strong and mobile.
SUN 10-12 ”Redefining the Pelvic Tuck” 2hrs
Should we tuck the pelvis in yoga? Should we not tuck the pelvis in yoga? Find your new strength, teach your body how to find a neutral pelvic position. Learn to free your pelvis moving from an anterior to posterior tilt to find the center. Then translate that into your postures through class. You will surprise yourself with how your body feels as you move with this new pelvic awareness.
SUN 13-1530 ”Deconstructing your Backbends” 2,5 hrs
What does it really take in your body to do a backbend? Is it just the spine? The answer is, no!
Come and explore how your hips and glutes support your backbends in a way you haven't experienced before. Learn to recruit these muscles to get them doing what they are designed to do and access your backbends like never before.
