If you haven't heard of Yoga Detour, you are missing the best thing on the (yoga) internet. Yoga Detour is known for seamlessly bridging the gap between alternative movement modalities and traditional postures. As the creator of this Teacher Training method, Cecily specializes in an integrative approach to yoga asana that blends science with intuition, and structure with creativity. During this deep dive into the Detour method, she will explore the four main pillars of this approach:
- Working from the Centre - spinal mechanics, centration and core stability
- Integrating lower body strength and mobility into standing postures
- Integrating upper body strength and mobility into backbends and arm balances
- Floor Play - finding mobility from the ground up
Cecily will demonstrate how to layer these foundational elements of a Detour-style practice to create an approach to movement and teaching that honours the needs of each student while creating a balanced and informed full-body experience.
