Going backward - Change your perspective
This workshop focuses on techniques for backward bending, using breath as a primary tool. Breath awareness is crucial to sustainable back bending. It helps you stay calm, it helps you bend (more) equally throughout all parts of your spine, it helps you lift up out of pelvis and low back. Once you learn to back bend while using your breath, you change you perspective both literally and figuratively. Curious?
Sign up here for Workshop 1 or buy your ticket at our front desk.

Moving forward – Explore, investigate, discover
This workshop focuses on hip opening and forward bending. When we run into tight spots, whether in the yoga practice or outside of it, we tense up, we stop moving, we get even tighter. This workshop offers you techniques and postures to help open your hips and improve you forward bends. You will also learn how to most effectively use your breath to sustain and support those techniques and postures. Curious?

About Serious Request and Serious Yoga
Every year, national pop station NPO 3FM in collaboration with the Red Cross commits to fight for a cause that would otherwise not receive the attention it deserves through 3FM Serious Request. From Serious Request, Serious Yoga was initiated. Through Serious Yoga, yoga schools and yoga teachers invite their students to practice yoga together, to create awareness, to raise money and to give positive energy for the 3FM Serious Request cause.
