Josh is back on Saturday October 14th with another fun filled morning of class & a wonderful workshop. So happy to welcome Josh back for another collaboration with the Loft, read a little more about Josh and what we have planned for you below
Joshua discovered yoga through his theatre training and in 2013 he moved to the United Kingdom to complete his MA studying how yoga can supplement the three disciplines of musical theatre and artists' mental health. Since then, Joshua has developed as a yoga teacher with the teachings of Leon London, Dulce Aguilar, Bernie Clark and Holly Warren, and has discovered a particular joy in anatomy and understanding what makes the body tick. Weaving together styles of Vinyasa, Yin, Rocket and Mandala with theories of physiology, chakras and somatics, Joshua is happiest when learning something new and implementing it into his teaching in both studio classes and in his role as a lecturer on 200hr and 500hr teacher trainings.

A Little more detail on the Beyond Backpain Workshop......
One of the most common complaints a yoga teacher hears is 'low back pain', and every time I hear it I say you're in the right place! When we properly activate traditional yogic energy locks and the myofascial core of the body, we can create strength and stability which can then support our body in any direction our yoga practice takes us! In this workshop we'll look at the three traditional bandhas and how we can adapt them to our practice, as well as the "Big 3" back pain exercises recommended by globally renowned back pain expert Dr. Stu Mcgill. We'll then use these principles to empower ourselves to approach postures we'd otherwise avoid in a safe and playful way.
