Breaking Down Sun Salutations with Mckenzie Riepen in Queen Anne - Sangha Yoga Seattle

The pace in a vinyasa class can move pretty fast, and if you don’t stop to look around once in a while you could miss it [the meaning, the alignment, the point]. Ferris Bueller quotes aside, if you find yourself questioning whether or not you’re doing your vinyasa correctly or want to fine-tune your sun salutations, this workshop is for you! The fluid postures that makeup sun salutations can either lead you to transformation or wreak havoc on the body if done incorrectly. In this workshop, we’ll break down the key poses of sun salutations, provide modifications, and explore mindful transitions. This workshop is designed for all levels.

What we’ll work on:
-Breaking down the alignment of each posture in Sun Salutations with an emphasis on chaturanga
-Syncing movement with breath in a vinyasa class
-Beginner to advanced transitions including jumping
-Accessing these postures safely without straining the shoulders, wrists, neck, and lower back
-Modifications for sun salutation movements

About the instructor: Mckenzie Riepen

Mckenzie Riepen

McKenzie Riepen was originally drawn to the mat for the physical workout and release from everyday pressures. With more consistency, she started to receive the benefits of yoga that spanned far beyond physical changes. She experienced positive mental and emotional effects to her well-being, including learning how to deal with anxiety in a way she had never before been able to access. Most importantly, yoga taught her how to use her breath as the most powerful tool to become more present in daily life and realign things into perspective.

After a decade of exploring different yoga styles from Hatha, Restorative and Vinyasa, she completed her 200-hour teacher training in her hometown of Phoenix, Arizona in 2013. McKenzie compassionately guides her students to connect more deeply to themselves and to each other through breath work, creative energy flow sequencing and music. Her aim in teaching is to help others find joy through their practice, which she believes should be accessible for everyone—no matter age, experience level or physical location.
