Action Hiro Yoga Weekend
Friday 5th July – Sunday 7th July 2019
So excited to be welcoming Hiro Landazuri, Actionhiro to Edinburgh this July!
*** NOW UP FOR BOOKING ***
Join us for a weekend of workshops where will open body, mind and breath with Functional Flow, Body Mechanics and Moving Meditation Masterclasses.
Workshop Schedule –
6pm – 8:30pm – Moving Meditation Masterclass
The Purpose of our practice is to experience the unity of our mind, body and soul in a fluid and seamless flow state. Shifting the focus from ‘breath to movement’ to ‘movement to breath’
This workshop taps into the deeper levels of our being, getting back in touch with our natural rhythms beyond the fear of ‘not enough’, beyond the fear of ‘looking different’. We will introduce creative transitions and reconnect with the inner freedom of self expression and letting go in a moving meditation.
Perfect to get in tune with body and mind to start our weekend.
9am – 11:30am – Functional Flow
Remember what it felt like when we were beginning our yoga journey? The soreness yes, but also a freedom in our bodies that we were not used to, a lightness in our step, the glow in our being. The movements, the shapes, were new to our bodies and the shapes served in increasing the range of function in our bodies.
If we are honest, there are a lot of poses that are relatively comfortable for us now. So how can we increase our focus, our range of function, so that we can keep moving towards a better functioning self?
This master class incorporates different mobility exercises within familiar poses. We will introduce different transitions that shift the mental focus from fitting into a shape to making the shape serve a greater functionality in our bodies. The goal is to bring us closer towards the freedom we seek within.
1pm – 3:30pm – Intelligent Inversions
Do you have one pair of yoga pants that is your ‘handstand yoga pants?’ The pants where every time you put them on, you feel stronger and more confident getting upside down? Don’t leave your practice to chance! Ditch the pants and come to this class.
Experience what it is like to fly consistently and confidently in this challenging yet light-hearted workshop. We will break down the elements of inversions as well as explore unique exercises towards helping you access the power already inside you. allow yourself to encounter your practice in an elevated way and feel confident in seeing the world from a new perspective, with or without your handstand pants on!
9am – 11:30am – Too LEGit to Quit
It’s Hammer time! This workshop focuses on building strength and mobility in everything below the belt.
Learn how to strengthen, lengthen and coordinate these muscles while exploring targeted, unique exercises to rapidly progress in your practice: everything from smarter hips to one legged balances. Be prepared to break away from your typical asanas and experience some new dynamic movements that will help you build depth and stability in your practice.
Gain full control of your legs to crush it on the dance floor, and to let everyone else know that they “Can’t touch this”
1pm – 3:30pm – Demystifying Backbends
Consider the thought that if the ribs, chest and spine are all anchored together, how is the beautiful even arch in backbends achieved in the upper chest? From another perspective, when we speak to the soulful aspect of backbends, opening past our egos allows for the openness of possibility. The duality of the mind and the soul is often seen as two sides of a coin… but is it possible that the mindfulness to the technical and the soul of the practice can come into harmony?
In this workshop, we will discover the different engagements, common misalignments, and inventive techniques that draw a deeper understanding to the mechanics of backbends. By demystifying the physiology, we will open up space for the soul to find its place in harmony with mindfulness.
A lovely way to end the weekend and open up for the week ahead.

Here is a bit about the man himself –
Hiro Landazuri is a yoga teacher and photographer with a background in medicine. He first connected with yoga almost 20 years ago to help with running-related injuries. The challenging aspects of the practice and the stress relief that came with it immediately drew him in.
While working on his biochemistry degree and conducting research as an undergrad, Hiro decided to take a break from academia. With years of yoga practice under his belt, he began teaching classes in 2007. He went back to college to finish his degree after a series of life changes and entered a rigorous graduate medical program that focused on heart transplant surgery. He left the field after realizing it wasn’t the right path for him and dove right back into teaching yoga.
Hiro has since gained a following for his detailed pose breakdowns and anatomy-focused approach to teaching, which come through in detailed alignment cues that are tailored to students’ different bodies. He believes yoga sparks self-empowerment and aims to help students learn who they are and love who they are on and off the mat.
