Tripsichore Yoga Masterclass, with Special Guest Teacher Edward Clark
2.5hr Tripsichore Yoga Masterclass (Sept 29, 2017)
A Tripsichore Master Class is for everyone – except timid yogis. Even though this is a very challenging class, those who are quite new to yoga will also find a wealth of information and entertainment on offer. Tripsichore classes involve the exploration of material that some consider “advanced”, but the substance of what is studied is about how to approach difficult material in ways that increase your understanding of technique and seeks to give meaning to your yoga practice. It is about learning how to do things you can’t already do…as well as appreciating how to improve and refine the material you are close to mastering.
The classes are vinyasa and this means that there is a strong emphasis on exact breathing and the quality of movement rather than sustained asana. What the pursuit of this seeks is a way to extract meaning from doing the practice. So, while the class will include executing difficult inversions or elaborate backbends, it is really about finding an experience through yoga practice that illuminates what it is to be alive. Success or failure in performing “advanced” asana work in a flow of movement is relative…it is something that is particular to the moments in time during which they occur. Though one attempts to refine them through practice, they never become entirely perfect. Instead, they are a platform for learning and cultivating stimulating experiences.
Tripsichore Vinyasa Yoga is both challenging and fun. It encourages the student to explore the furthest range of their physical potential while providing the technical approaches that ensure safety. The Tripsichore Yoga style has been developed for 30 years and, in investigating yoga, has endeavoured to reconcile the idea of making advanced physical practice enhance the ends of a spiritual quest. While Tripsichore is known for its amazing variety of unusual postures, these have been discovered through the use of orthodox yoga techniques. These techniques have been experimented with to expand the range of what can possibly be derived from sound basics. The results have shown that there is a lot more to yoga than just standard asanas.
In a Tripsichore workshop, you’ll be sure to learn some new and interesting variations on inverted postures and new ways to achieve back bends. You’ll find out how to be more flexible and how to do things that look like they require considerable strength but, in accord with yogic principles, you’ll also discover that these are achieved with grace and ease. The Tripsichore sequences seek the integrity of the postures by assuming that the mind’s intention can be integrated with the body’s movement with breathing techniques. The refinement of these techniques – something that seems deceptively simple – provides the means through which the body achieves remarkable shapes of considerable beauty.
