Forrest Yoga & Bodywork Party

  • Eden Studios 43 Breite Straße Berlin, Berlin, 13187 Germany (map)

A very special one day event with Forrest Yoga Guardian Jambo 'Dragon' Truong.

This is your opportunity to literally get in touch with the specifics of Jambo's work - especially if you are flirting with the idea to sign up for the Yoga Bodyworkers Training in October.

You're invited to join us for an educative and exuberant Forrest Yoga & Bodywork Party!

The emphasis of this workshop is on shoulders. Habitual shoulder and neck pain is something we're all likely to carry around. Experience how healing can be fun!

During the yoga session in the morning, Jambo will share modified versions of classic Forrest Yoga poses that are intended to inspire your practice and bring you more strength, stability and awareness to the shoulders.

In the afternoon session, Jambo will break down a Yoga Bodywork sequence that enables you to easily understand and feel within yourself how working from the shoulders is foundational for optimal recovery from pain.

WHEN: Sunday, July 29th July at EDEN STUDIOS, Breite Strasse 43, 13187 Berlin

SCHEDULE:
10:00-1:00 pm - Morning Ceremony and Yoga Practice
3:00-6:00 pm - Afternoon Bodywork Session

PRICE: 60 € for 2 x 3 hour workshops

ABOUT JAMBO TRUONG:

Jambo's yoga journey began at the age of 14 when he started a chanting and meditation practise. His asana practise began at the age of 17. His first conscious glimpses of the Western approach to Complementary Medicine didn't happen randomly, since he grew up within a household that used acupuncture, nutrition and herbalism. At the age of 18, Jambo developed his first dose of sciatica and a dislocated shoulder. At this age he was guided by one of his mentors to get off his backside and return to education. Reluctantly he signed up for a Reflexology course. After a couple of weeks of enjoying regular 'foot massage', he reached out for help with sciatica. After 2 weeks of combining Reflexology, Reiki, Meditation & Yoga he realized the benefits of Complementary Therapies and decided to sign up for a years worth of part time therapy programs. On enrollment he was convinced to sign up for a degree program in Integrated Health: Complementary Medicine.
