About the Workshop
Treat your asana with Myofascial Release (MFR) therapy. Fascia is an energetic layer in the body that connects the systems of the body. It often gets tight or clogged in areas and as a result reduces energetic flow. 
Come learn Myofascial Release (MFR) therapy techniques to unlock stuck, stubborn and tight areas of the body. Use MFR to discover a greater energy flow through old injured areas, and increase range of motion and overall muscle functioning.
Combine MFR with mindful alignment of the fundamental yoga poses to bring greater vibrancy into your practice. Develop a heightened awareness of these energetic lines as alignment points and integrate them into your asana practice.
Taught in English with Mandarin interpretation.

About Lars

Lars first sought out yoga back in his home country of Canada in 1998, as a way to help recover from a back injury and deal with a particularly stressful time in life. After a few weeks of classes, he felt a visceral knowing that yoga just made sense. Creativity began to flow easier in his design career and the things that once stressed him seemed much easier to deal with. The circumstances in life didn't change, but he felt that somehow practising yoga helped transform his attitude to life. He says it felt like magic and gives thanks to the focus and discipline of the Ashtanga practice.
As he continued to practise over the years his curiosity and interest in anatomy and the philosophical side of yoga grew. He joked about becoming a yoga geek. He began taking workshops and discovering other methods of Hatha yoga and was intrigued by the science of alignment and art of sequencing. Lars is an integrator by nature and from the Ashtanga lineage, he is strongly influenced by the writings and teachings of both Richard Freeman and Paul Dallaghan. They both have ways of invoking states of meditation with a single breath while in a pose.
From the alignment-based lineage of Iyengar, he is also influenced by the teachings and writings of Doug Keller who is a humble wizard of anatomy and alignment as each body is unique. Because of them, Lars is forever committed to being a student. Lars humbly gives gratitude to all his teachers, both formal and informal, who have shared their knowledge, inspired him and showed him that there is much much more to yoga than poses on the mat.
Lars' motto is: focus yes, even discipline, but serious is not required. His light-hearted style of teaching invites you to explore poses with curiosity and to go deeper into feeling a posture using breath as a tool and guide. He has a way of making the easy postures challenging and the challenging postures easier, step by step, using techniques learned in the so called 'easy' postures.
Breath, focus and meditation are the key elements folded into an ashtanga/flow class; yin/meditation; a detailed alignment hatha class; or, a private lesson to address imbalances or overcome the bottle neck in one's practice. He is currently focused on the study of yoga as therapy and continues to use his own practices to go deeper into observing and understanding the best moment in life, now.
