Bringing Spirit and Purpose into Your Yoga Practice

SPACE, Taipei's first boutique yoga studio, is honored to welcome three internationally celebrated Yoga instructors to inaugurate its ongoing MASTER TEACHER SERIES in Taiwan.

The theme of the April Yoga Expo is "Bringing Spirit and Purpose into Your Yoga Practice". Three world reknowned international Instructors will introduce, through their own unique styles and personalities, ancient and modern yogic techniques that expand the practice to so much more than just the physical. All three instructors are frequent key presenters at yoga workshops worldwide and are featured various DVDs, CDs, books and magazine articles. All workshops are designed to help students explore and refine their potential in the physical poses which will awaken the heart and enlighten the mind in the process.

Workshops are a valuable tool for the yoga practitioner, as they offer a more in-depth and detailed opportunity to learn and grow. Lessons learned in workshops and intensives can then be effectively applied to daily personal practice and in regular classes. Yoga Expo Workshops and Intensives will springboard the practice to a new level of understanding and application in helping to feel more joyful, healthy and full of life.

Yoga means unification, and students will be encouraged to unify their bodies, minds and hearts through the creative and innovative teachings of the guest instructors.

SPACE is happy to be the first ever in Asia to bring three internationally acclaimed yoga instructors together in one forum. Each instructor is a truly inspirational human being in their own way, and are living examples of a lifestyle dedicated to health, joy, yoga and love. The symbiotic exchange of these three different methods and approaches to Yoga will demonstrate the yoga principle of unity amidst diversity.

SPACE looks forward to bringing many reknowned international instructors to our Taipei studio each year. Look for quarterly Master Teacher offerings.

Students of all levels are welcomed.

ANUSARA YOGA Flowing with grace
With Desiree Rumbaugh

Anusara means "stepping into the Divine Flow of Grace". By aligning our bodies with nature and looking for balance of effort and surrender in each pose, we consciously and steadily train our hearts and minds. Desiree will introduce the three "A's" of Anusara Yoga: Attitude, Alignment and Action and how to apply all of them to your practice. Simultaneously experience the grace-filled simplicity and empowering strength of the practice.

With Duncan Wong (Developing our capacity to turn jumping into floating in Vinyasa Yoga)

A workshop designed to awaken the core components of your physical body. Beginning with a set core floor-work sequence, inspired by a Pilates style of exercises, which are infused with Buddhist martial arts ground combat training. The result is a tangible trunk-strength awareness that integrates the upper and lower bodies.
This workshop will explore the bio-mechanics of how to lift properly, as well as how to manipulate correct weight shifting, weight bearing and breath controlled, bandhic [core muscular contractions] integration

HOW TO RELAX DEEPLY A Workshop of Restorative Yoga, Pranayama & Meditation Techniques
With Ateeka
