Movement over Shape Part II: Core and Arms with Catherine Khazarian

  • Studio South 1A Kaiserstraße Bonn, NRW, 53113 Germany (map)

What does your core do, when your arms are lifting overhead?

In this workshop we will explore the relation between stabilising the core and lifting the arms overhead:

•   Vrksasana (Tree)

•   Virabhadrasana I (Warrior I)

•   Adho MukhaSvanasana (Downward Facing Dog)

•   Dolphin

•   Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand)/ Half Handstand

This workshop invites you to dive into the foundational movement necessary for an empowering balance between floating the arms overhead and maintaining core stability. We will uncover a movement principle which will guide you with more clarity through basic as well as advanced poses so that you can take your practice to a next level.


This is Part II of the workshop series 'Movement over Shape'. 

Each workshop will provide you with a movement principle that can be applied to a certain set of poses. Thereby you will be able to increase stability, maintain mobility and deepen into a safe and sustainable pose. The three parts of the workshop series are independent from one another. Taken together they reflect how the lower body and the upper body connect.

Imagine a pose is not so much a static form but rather a structure that gives space to constant, inner movement… Catherine(RYT 500) is inspired by the inquiry of these individual movements which sum up to build a ‘living’ pose. She helps her students create the awareness for movement principles and to build a physically supportive alignment. Catherine believes that by cultivating curiosity in our yoga practice we can train our mind to become more attentive and apply that same curiosity in every day life: What is it that supports me? What does not serve me? What can I do to make a change?

Catherine completed her 500hrs SmartFLOW teacher training with her teacher Annie Carpenter.
