Vinyasa Yoga with Ginny Haswell
Ginny has been practicing yoga for over 15 years and teaching since 2007. In the years following her initial teacher training (RYT200) in the Astanga Vinyasa method, she also trained with Paul Grilley (Yin yoga), Shiva Rea (vinyasa flow) and Dr Timothy McCall (therapeutic yoga).
Ginny's current teacher is Tiffany Cruikshank, with whom she is studying on the 500hr Yoga Medicine program. Focussing her studies in anatomy, biomechanics, Eastern philosophy and prescriptive yoga, Ginny is able to understand the needs of individual students from a multi-dimensional perspective. Her group classes, workshops and holidays demonstrate her flexible and creative approach in making the practice accessible and joyful for all.
On this holiday, the morning yoga sessions will start gently to prepare us for heat building, flowing sequences with multi-level options for all students. Alongside precise alignment cues and well structured themes, expect some playfulness and the opportunity to explore the deeper, energetic effects of asana.
In the evenings, we will enjoy nourishing Yin Yoga - floor based postures held for time and approached in a way that allows us to restructure our connective tissues - fascia and ligaments. Ginny will also introduce you to self-myofascial release techniques using tennis balls and other props.
Meditation, pranayama and deep relaxation will be included each day.
Just to say that our week at Source of Light was excellent. The food, accommodation, and weather were top notch: and the standard of Yoga teaching was absolutely superb.
