Workshop & Methodology Training with Carmen Aquilar
Sep 22, 10 am – 12 pm
Get ready to purge, cleanse body and mind from unnecessary junk stored and come out rejuvenated and renovated. Twists are a great tool to help us do so and they’re also incredibly versatile, with an enormous amount of possibilities and applications. Whether it’s sitting, standing, doing an arm balance or going upside down, when we throw a spinal twist into the mix, it makes things a lot more interesting. Come prepared to work hard, have a great time and leave feeling years younger. Some euphoria might arise as a side effect, beware!
Sep 22, 1.30 pm – 3.30 pm
Potions for Deeper Hip Rotations
Any ‘leg behind the head’ pose IS achievable if we work that external hip rotation consistently. Come ready to leave old preconceptions and beliefs behind of ‘no it’s not possible’ or ‘my hips are tight’, and enter a new world where your hips can open like a flower in blossom. This class will set a good foundation so you can take the practice/tips/ideas home with you and digest them more, deconstruct and explore other alternatives. Hip openers are thrilling, lively and full of possibilities. Often, we put so much pressure on ourselves, that our hips lock up like a treasure chest. Let’s find the key, explore some together and leave inspired for more!

Tip Toeing Into Scorpions
Not your average yoga class, this backbend one will dare to trade into waters you might not do on your own, feel intimidated, lost or simply have never thought of. After a thorough warm up and having covered other backbends, some time will be dedicated to study Scorpions, how to do them safely, properly so we can incorporate them in our personal practice. This class is for all levels and you don’t need an ‘advanced’ practice (whatever that means) to participate. You’ll need, however, an open mind, ready to try and willing to see what happens. Stiffness, or being able to work around our personal difficulties, is a big part of the learning process. You don’t want to miss out on that! Come and explore…

Methodology Training on Adjustment and Sequencing Continues – Day 1
Sep 24, 10. 30 am – 12 pm
Transitions or The Art Of Linking Poses Smoothly
This class will approach a number of asanas (standing, sitting, inverted, arm balances…) and, more importantly, will help you figure out ways to link them effortlessly and safely. A good sequence (Vinyasa Krama), in the right order, can get you easily to places you haven’t been before. When you use smooth transitions to tie it up, it can feel like moving meditation, serene and quiet or, it can build momentum, intensity and difficulty. Get ready to experiment both ends of the spectrum, always moving seamlessly in and out of poses, and work on your ‘floating’ skills while we do that. No prior flying experience necessary…. just the desire to do so!!

Methodology Training on Adjustment and Sequencing Continues – Day 2
Carmen Aquilar E-RYT 200 (@cyogalab), had completed an Engineering degree and then a Masters degree, spoke 4 languages and was deciding in what direction to launch her career when she found yoga. A seemingly crazy choice at the time, she dropped everything and devoted all her energies to the study of this discipline. The deeper she got into it the more it fascinated her.
During the first years she studied with every teacher she could find, traveling wherever was necessary, completed 5 different Teacher Trainings while she started to develop her own style and her daily practice. Devoting to it 3 hours, 7 days a week, she has been able to reach levels few practitioners share. However, her strength is not in her practice but in her teaching. She has been teaching yoga for more than 16 years and during that time she’s developed a unique teaching style, cYoga, intended to make her students achieve their best both physically and mentally.
In her own words: ‘cYoga came from a craving for an intense practice: my mind wanted to try things my body couldn’t follow but pretty soon I realized how much sequencing and warming up properly affected the outcome, so I wouldn’t injure and could practice easily on a daily basis. An intense asana practice is not only cleansing and rejuvenating, but it can also change our beliefs and the way we’re wired. Our body is the most tangible vehicle to access our very own essence. Stepping on our mat is an amazing and precious experience every single time! With cYoga I intend to provide each student with that kind of practice.’
In March 2010, she was inspired to open her own yoga studio (The Lab) in Chicago, where she resides today with her husband Moises, to continue to share her yoga journey with others.
