Krista E Cahill

Krista E Cahill, Paris France

In 1999 Krista began practicing Ashtanga Yoga- as taught by Sri. K Pattabhi Jois. Years later & by great fortune, Krista was led to Master-Teacher Maty Ezraty. Maty influenced Krista to approach daily practice from the subtle body, rather than gross anatomy. A teaching that deeply influences the course taken each day, on & off the mat. Krista continues to study and to be mentored by Maty. Upon Maty's recommendation Krista traveled to Italy in 2015 to study with Dona Holleman. Dona's method is called "Centered Yoga".Dona's teachings are inspiring new and untapped avenues of growth. Much gratitude and respect for her teachings Krista's classes reflect all three of her main influences, and are for anyone open to creative exploration.Krista asks students to be curious to let go of pretenses & to embrace inner-exploration.Krista understands Yoga as a healing art and spiritual discipline, “ you don’t learn to be intuitive—you already are". Yoga is remembering we are constantly under Construction— there is infinite room for learning and creative expression. This practice intends to provoke us & to inspire the bigger questions triggering one’s own awakening…the truth is-It is never complete, it is never finished, it’s infinite.

Fredag

12:00 : Fire Center (Studio 6 Riddarsalen)

The central channel is the main causeway for energies from our heart to the extremities. Maintenance of balance and free flow is essential to lightness throughout. Core muscles surrounding the torso create stability and enable twists, forward, backward and side movements of the spine. Stretching and tone are extremely important to the health of our entire body, and learning to elongate the spine evenly is the most essential to the soft tissue and disc health. As the world around places force and weight constantly, we adapt by using postural muscles to maintain erect graceful movement. This grace is the product of connection not force, the body is light and bouncy. Movement with approach to balance and precision brings tone and fluidity to our being.

-Movement to examine are:

-Flexion & Abdominal contraction

-Extension & Abdominal contraction

-Side extension & contraction

-Twisting

-Diaphragmatic Breathing

 

Lördag

09:00 : Magic Shoulders (Studio 1 Strindberg)

Our skeleton is designed with genius understanding of our need to move the arms freely in all directions. An enormous asset if you climb trees and eat majority fruits as our early ancestors did to survive. Modern times limits our need for movement in large range and capacity. Through practice we exercise the full range of motion in all directions. It feels so free to experience the movement and release of tension from the joints.

The unlimited movement of the shoulder, incredibly free, needs the equal amount of boundaries & stability to ensure balance. Vulnerability of the shoulder is inevitable, this is why we must take care— approach the shoulders gently, whilst playing and exploring. Healthy tension free shoulders are a result of regular practice and maintenance to the health and wellbeing of the entire person. Practice of specific asanas with attention to harmony gives beautiful results to the physical elements of freedom. Our focus will land on the following postures:

-Downward Dog

-Plank & Chaturanga

-Handstand

- Urdvha Danurasana

 

14:30 : Master Class Practice (Studio 5 Magasinet)

Mastery of skill in action, this is the breathtaking turn our practice takes after spending time deconstructing and deepening our understanding of harmonizing the physical practice with the subtle body awareness. As a discipline, Yoga, has the endless possibility to awaken our innermost talents and relationship to the SELF. Putting the ideas into action and connecting the dots gives our mind and body a fantastic opportunity to sync up and flow with the source.

- Sun Salutations

- Standing Postures

- Seated-hip openers

- Pick-ups

- Spinal Elongation

- Breathing Techniques

 

 

Söndag

09:45 : Chaturanga (Studio 3 Nobelterrassen)

- under the microscope

I know you already are feeling intimidated by the Title, Chaturanga is a difficult asana, which requires strength and practice. This entire class will build up to Chaturanga + the last third of the class will be conducted as a LAB, looking at a few people who have questions, or injuries. The intensity of this class will be because we put such an intense pose under the microscope, make it successful by bringing a healthy sense of humor- be ready to laugh @ how (ridiculously) hard this asana is to refine & reboot. Provacative poses, such as this one, teaches us the mindset of every master teacher, “we are perpetually beginners in this practice”.

 

11:30 : Hip Opening (Studio 5 Magasinet)

Far from the existence of our head is the hara— a vortex of primary energy. Source energy, which sustains our creative and physical manifestations.

Approximate physical location is between 2nd & 3rd sacral vertebrae, however, energy is not merely physical... it’s beyond physiology.

The energy of the Hara represents the ELEMENT of-Water. Flowing postures, hydrates the souls thirst for creative expression. The physical practice is deep hip muscle relaxation and tension release.

-Padmasana

-Binds

-Eka-pada Sirsasana

-Psoas Release

-Ekapada Raja

-Supta Vajrasana

Lördag

10:45 : Handbalancing for ALL (Studio 1 Norr)

This course will guide you through the most important part of the practice of hand balancing, the preparations. Connection exercises to the center of the body, rebounding energy theory, and shoulder stability drills are key to advancing understanding of how to approach this family of challenging, yet fun postures.

Everyone- of all levels is welcome tojoin in on this practice, as it will inform the beginner as well as advanced student, excluding no-one. Yoga is an inclusive practice, and when the students approach is correct… this is where you find tremendous learning and beautiful community support in your many Hi's and Low's. On the mat and in LIFE.

 

14:30 : FREEstyle (Studio 2 Mitten)

Laboratory for self practice, a classical sequence taught methodically in the space of freedom to slow down, explore deeper, and study the minutiae. Free breathing, rather than traditional Ujjayi breathing offers a fun challenge, a chance to cultivate the diaphragmatic breathing for a different approach.

Observing our attachments shows up in these intense moments of self study, opening to seeing our blocks, blocks which limits our knowledge, possible expansion, and understanding. Tolerance is the birthplace of peace. Enjoy practicing a slightly altered version of the classical Primary Series sequence, the freedom to be inclusive, plus all the mutual benefits to traditional Ashtanga Mysore method as a Laboratory for all …

 

Söndag

08:00 : California Dreamer (Studio 2 Mitten)

Golden light, and Sunsets over the Pacific, create the perfect backdrop to a killer Yoga practice. Ask anyone about the magic of yoga in LA LA LAND…

LA yoga is a blend of laid-back, bo-ho chic dreamers and brilliant physical precision, thanks to master teacher Maty Ezraty, the Founder of Yoga Works, Santa Monica. The quintessential practice gives you the best LA has to offer, strength and ease. A perfect balance of intensity; long holds, hand balancing, movement, and precision. While working intensely on building strength, the breath helps us to create ease & space in the body…

Ease brings us to the moment, and to balance. All Levels are Welcome.

 

11:30 : Drop Back (Studio 1 Norr)

A crash-course on how to use gravity to descend gracefully into the spinal extensions such as Urdvha Danurasana and Ustrasana. The practice will begin in a simple format and progress slowly toward possible drops and lifts.

Each person range of motion is unique and this laboratory will help create understanding for the body’s natural limits and how to develop a moderate approach to advancing one’s practice.
