Backbends and Inversions workshop.
Presented by Marc Potter
Saturday May 19th
12:30pm to 3:30pm
This will be an active class exploring backbending and inversions. An explanation of what is happening to the spine during a backbend and inversion, how performing these asana will affect the body and what
you can do to improve yours will be given. Suitable for the beginner to the seasoned practitioner. Best to bring your own yoga mat and strap if you have one as you will be trying different backbends and inversions
as a part of this workshop (not necessarily from the Ashtanga series). Non-Ashtanga yogis welcome.
To book, please contact Jo Camponovo:
About Marc Potter;
Potts’ introduction to this vast world of yoga began at the age of 19 when he started learning meditation. Now some 27 years later he still enjoys that there is something to learn about yoga everyday. He is an advanced 3rd series practitioner of Ashtanga Yoga. He meets with his spiritual Master Babaji (a self-realised yogi) every six months when he visits Perth from India.
Potts encourages all of his students to take responsibility of their yoga practice as the only person who practice yoga for you is you. No matter how good your teacher is, he or she can’t do it for you. Potts has been fortunate to have encountered many great and respected teachers including Dena Kingsburg, Graeme Northfield, Monica Gauci, Gregor Maleh, Simon Borg Oliver and Pattabih Jois. A good teacher illuminates the path forward. You are the one taking the steps.
Working through problem areas in the body/mind in a gentle way has been the best teacher for Marc, particularly with issues presented in his back. From this experience he is able to pass on knowledge to students working through difficulties. Everything changes, without doubt.
