Five Days To Float

Have you ever seen someone floating through sun salutations and think, I could never do that?

Well, we’re here to show you that it IS possible! Yes - for everyone.

David Floating

There are simple and accessible techniques that we teach to students of all levels so they can begin to find more gracefulness in their movements.

In this course we break down each movement into bitesize steps that will help guide you to begin floating.  Through taking this time to learn these actions, you’ll begin to understand how to make each movement more fluid and graceful.

What we share comes from our more than 30 years of combined teaching and practice experience.  However new you are to this, know that we’ve taught students just like you how to do this.  And that’s the key!  Floating is not an elusive or special movement that only some can do.  With the right technique (and a lot of practice) we believe anyone can do this.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s start floating!

Student Reviews

"I loved this workshop. Each class focused on a specific aspect of lifting, or a particular transition, but there were also a handful of overlapping principles that applied throughout. I have been able to incorporate a lot of new techniques into my practice, and I am definitely seeing an improvement in my lightness and floatiness!" - Ashley Ingvoldstad

"I loved EVERYTHING about this course!! Every session was eye-opening. After each class, I found myself appreciating each asana much more than before… even the asanas I wasn’t crazy about before. Highly recommended for yoga practitioners at all levels. Thank you, Jelena and David! Sending big thanks to Kat for her awesome support as well. " - Mika Howard

"I really like how David and Jelena break things down into incremental steps. It means that no matter what your ability level is, there’s something that you can work on. Their explanations and hints are applicable to so many parts of the practice… be it the timing of the breath or body position. Definitely worth it!!" Lisa Huzel

Course Schedule

Meditation in Motion

Day One:
This workshop is all about the vinyasa system, which links movement and breath together within a fixed sequence. When followed with devotion and precision, the vinyasa sequence provides a structure that repeatedly directs our focus inward, away from the vagaries of the mind, and towards awareness itself. Understanding this system is the first step to floating.

Setting the Table

Day Two:
This workshop will give you some techniques that can help with floating: 

  1. Movement Follows Breath 
  2. Straight Lines 
  3. Sameness 
  4. Precision as a Lens

Lifting and Landing

Day Three:
This workshop is all about the anatomy and alignment of the arms and
shoulders in the jump-back vinyasa. Proper alignment is vital for both the execution and, perhaps more importantly, the maintenance of your vinyasa practice.

Jump-Back & Jump-Through Vinyasa

Day Four:
This workshop will provide a detailed look at the vinyasa and biomechanics of the seated jump-back and jump-through. Modifications and progressions will be provided to accommodate different bodies.

Floating in Practice

Day Five:
This workshop will offer you the opportunity to put all of your knowledge into practice. Using the beat of a drum to guide the breath, David and Jelena will lead you through the Sun Salutations and Fundamental Asanas of the Ashtanga vinyasa sequence.

All classes are pre-recorded.
Students will have access to all lessons and course materials for 30 days from the date of purchase,

Jelena first came to yoga through dance. As a former ballet dancer of 16 years, the structure and rigour of the Ashtanga Yoga practice felt like home. Drawn to the discipline, mindfulness of the movement and emphasis on the breath, Jelena made the Ashtanga practice her sole focus in 2009.

Jelena has maintained a daily Ashtanga practice for over a decade. She’s made two trips to Mysore, India to study with her teacher, Sharath Jois.

Lastly, Jelena’s true passion lies in promoting rescue and adoption of (street) dogs. You can often find her sharing her love for #adoptdontshop on her IG, and sharing the joys of living with her two fur-babies, Boksoon and Khani, both celebrities in their own right.
