Current Workshop Offerings
Becca Cerra Is currently offering the following workshops. To book a workshop for your own event or studio, e-mail BeccaCerra@gmail.com or call 973-349-6720
Starting first with a series of static postures, Becca will teach proper alignment and breathing techniques in each posture. She will then teach you a flowing sequence to connect the postures together. Linking the movements with your breath, you'll find a deeper expression of each posture and move smoothly through a choreographed yoga-inspired dance. You'll practice the routine as a large group, individually, and in pairs.
Arm Balances and Inversions
Do you want to learn how to support yourself in new and creative ways? Each week I'll demonstrate an arm balance or inversion and guide you through your own expression of these postures. We'll focus on building the strength necessary to safely enter and exit each posture.
Exhale your Stress Away
In Sanskrit, Prana means life-force, Ayama means expansion. By learning to harness the energy your breath creates, you'll find true life-force expansion.
Start your day right by preparing your body and mind to overcome any stressful situation through mastery of your breath. We'll begin each class first with a cleansing technique: jaal neti (water neti pot) to clear the nasal passages and prepare them for the breathing exercises. Each class we'll learn a new technique and continue to refine our practice of the previous week's exercises. You can expect to learn the health benefits and techniques for practicing:
- Anulom Vilom (alternate nostril breathing) and Nadi Shodan (with breath retention)
- Ujjayi (victorious breath)
- Sheetali and Sheetkari
We'll also learn proper techniques for incorporating the 4 types of locks or bandhas: mula bandha-root, uddiyana bandha-abdomen, jalandhara bhandathroat, and maha bandha - great lock) into pranayama. These practices can each be incorporated into meditation and asana practices.
From the Ground Up
Take your practice to new heights in this AcroYoga workshop. After a vinyasa warm-up, you'll work in a rotating group of 3 taking turns as the base, flyer, and spotter learning counterbalances and l-basing postures in the air. By the end of each class you'll learn how to connect the series of static postures together creating a dynamic flowing sequence through the air.
