Discover how our hand poses organize and support a more aligned and powerful body posture while exploring the precision of Duncan’s “Micro Flow”, which increases awareness of correct vinyasa and incremental movement in a comprehensive way. This workshop will focus on applying powerful hand mudras to support every pose from down dog to handstand as well as preventative warm-up and therapeutic recovery sequences that support our wrists and shoulders.

Duncan Wong grew up studying with legendary American teachers in San Francisco during the 1980's and 1990's when Vinyasa was born from the Ashtanga and Iyengar lineages. He studied intensively with Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India and went on to New York City to become a world-class teacher during the 1990's and early 2000's. He pioneered a Warrior Yoga (Vira Vinyasa) style that emphasizes intelligent stance awareness, creative modifications of challenging poses, therapeutic adjustments and hand mudras. He currently resides in Kyoto, Japan and has lived in Asia for the past decade.

saturday, may 5th, june 9th, july 14th, 1-5 PM 

Offered on three dates, this workshop will dive into the fundamentals of the Wim Hof Method (WHM) with one of the few U.S. certified instructors. These principle techniques were developed in nature by “The Iceman” himself, Wim Hof, which he has used for over 30 years to find peace, control his mind and achieve an unprecedented level of human performance.

For four hours, you will get hands-on training with Breathing Exercises, Cold Exposure, and Mindset/Focus--the three pillars of the Wim Hof Method. This will include a light lecture that introduces the science behind the method, how it is affecting your mind and body, and how you can use the method to your advantage. In addition, you will be moving, breathing and getting into the ice, all while having a lot of fun.

After the workshop, you will be equipped with a new set of tools, training and knowledge to upgrade your daily life. As Wim says, we all have the innate ability to be Healthy, Strong and Happy. By combining the three pillars, you will unlock a wide range of benefits including: Reduced stress, increased energy, better sleep, sharpened focus and determination, increased creativity, boosted metabolism, decreased inflammation, improved sports performance and more...
