Five Reasons Why You Should Do A Yoga Workshop
1. Renew your commitment. Stepping out of a comfortable routine can help you appreciate your practice all over again. Good times to shake things up are seasonal shifts, holidays, birthdays or whenever you need renewed energy and a fiercer focus on your practice.
2 .Alignment and technique. A workshops allows you to deep dive and go over the alignment and technique you are taught in flow classes but don’t have the time to explore as you will in a workshop.
3. Shift your awareness. You already know that stepping out of your comfort zone to try a new teacher or class can inspire a fresh perspective. The focus of a workshop will answer questions you didn’t even know you had, and help you feel established in a yoga lifestyle. Building strength and stamina isn’t just physical—focusing on yoga for an entire afternoon or throughout a weekend also shifts your awareness, training you to sustain a yogic perspective on and off the mat.
4. Neuroplasticity. A fancy word for pattern formation in the brain. As you learn how to do poses in an integrated way, your brain is rewiring itself. Over time, you can say, “Wow, it feels completely different this way!”
5. Dip your toes into teacher training. A longer workshop can help you decide whether or not you’re ready for the big plunge, teacher training.
