I am returning to China to work with Yoga In China, an organisation working to bring yoga instructors to cities outside Shanghai and Beijing – the usual cities foreign teachers visit. This trip will see me visit two cities I have not been to before – Nanjing and Suzhou – as well as returning to Shanghai and Hangzhou.
The dates for the Shanghai yoga workshop are November 18 & 19, 2015.

Practice With Precision.
Do you ever wonder if you’re doing your poses “right”? Yoga poses are never finished, never perfect. The poses are meant to be constantly unfolding and expanding. In these upcoming workshops, Stephen Ewashkiw will bring you techniques to evolve and expand your practice.
Everything you do that helps you find a deeper understanding of your body and of your mind is yoga. Yoga invites you to engage more with your body, your life, and to engage more with the life that is happening around you.
By working with you on the detailed anatomical alignment of the poses, Stephen will help you learn to build strength and stability so that you can safely deepen your practice. It doesn’t matter if you practice vinyasa, hot, Power, Hatha, or any other kind of yoga. These workshops are for anyone who currently practices yoga, and wants to learn more about how to refine their poses, how to improve their techniques. Expect clear instructions, the use of props, postural demonstrations and a keen focus on form. Come prepared to work hard. Come prepared to have fun.
November 18-19, 2015
November 18 – Form N’ Flow (3 Hours)
A practice-centred 3-hour class that will begin with a short talk from Stephen leading into mantra practice, breath work (pranayama), and asana. Expect demos, alignment, and repetition leading to a fun flow. We will end with meditation. The asana class will offer options for all levels of practice. Do what you can do, don’t do what you can’t do. All welcome.
November 19 – Revolve, Evolve (3 Hours)
The world is spinning at a spectacular rate, a fact that continually blows my mind. In this class we will revolve around our own sun, our heart, through a series of twists. Twists are a great way to prepare your spine for backbends, so expect to end with some backbending work.
