Jump Back, Jump Through

3hr Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Masterclass w/ Chris Croft

Life exists on the edge of your comfort zone! Explore the physics and physiology of anti-gravity, in this fun and challenging workshop

One of the most fundamental, yet challenging parts, of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga practice is learning to ‘float back’ and ‘glide through’. It seems impossible at first, and can take years to master. However, the difficult journey towards this feat of anti-gravity represents the transformational heart of this method of Hatha Yoga.

I remember my own excuses “my legs are too heavy” or “my arms are too short”. I had convinced myself I would never get off the ground and jump back… Until I did!

In this energising and fun 3hr Ashtanga Yoga Masterclass, we will breakdown the outer (physical body mechanics) and inner (emotional and physiology) requirements of jumping back and through. Using clever adaptations, props and special skill-building techniques, we will explore the key components required to master these seemingly impossible feats of anti-gravity.

  • Learn why the jump back’s and jump trough’s are so important in Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga.
  • Explore the physical biomechanics, and inner physiology, of jumping back and through.
  • Breakthrough the limiting beliefs and excuses, that are holding you back from success.
  • Explore amazing skill-building techniques that will finally make the impossible possible!
  • Practice different modifications, and learn the most appropriate adaptation for your practice.

"I attended the jump through jump back workshop and it was pretty awesome. Chris put everyone at ease and has us laughing throughout. So much to learn and loved how Chris started at the basics and then we were able to grow from there. Was intense at times but a good intense. I couldn't do it very well (well not at all) but the support was amazing. Going to continue my practice and will definitely be attending more workshops and classes. A great day"
"Chris delivered a really informative workshop on the jumping back, jumping through technique. There is so much to master in what always appears to be an effortless, fluid movement when properly executed. The entire sequence was dissected and expertly explained with plenty of tips, guidance, humour and encouragement. An enjoyable and exhausting way to spend 3 hours in a lovely studio. Thank you!"
"As someone new to Ashtanga I felt Chris made the workshop very accessible and explained the theory behind the practice very clearly. There was a good mix of knowledge and fun thrown our way so the three hours flew by"
