Hands On Yoga – A Workshop Series with Elena Mironov, assisted by Maria Matkowska
In these four sessions you will not only benefit from the instruction by senior experienced yoga and meditation teacher Elena Mironov, but also from skillful hands-on assists by Danish yoga teacher Maria Matkowska.
Each class will have a focus theme that will be supported by both anatomical and physiological explanations of how to enjoy your yoga practice in a safe and sustainable way.
Elena will provide guidance that offers intelligent sequencing as well as focus on cultivating strength of core and stabilizing muscles, using bandhas, creating length across muscle groups, mobility and stability of the joints.
Maria Matkowska will assist Elena in all four sessions with skillful hands on adjustments. In her work, Maria combines her profound understanding of the human body with her knowledge and experience in yoga asana practice. That way through her hands on adjustments, she can help you understand the action of the pose as well as anatomical and energetic alignment and experience a truly transformational yoga practice.
