    Standing Head to Knee and Standing Bow Pulling Clinic with Michele Vennard

    This workshop is free for USA Yoga Members, but pre-registration is required.

    During this clinic, Michele Vennard will go in-depth on two foundational poses that many athletes select for their routines: standing head to knee and standing bow pulling. As competitors know, these postures are challenging and rewarding. Hosting from Bikram Yoga San Jose, Michele will bring in a few yoga competitors to demonstrate the postures, and she will break down the postures in real time. We encourage participants to warm up prior to the workshop so they can practice alongside Michele and her assistants as she teaches drills for these postures and creates muscle memory through repetition. 

    Michele Vennard has practiced yoga daily for the past 20 years and she has been a certified Bikram yoga instructor since 2001. In 2003, she opened Bikram Yoga San Jose. Michele has taught thousands of students, coached yoga athletes, and hosted yoga competitions. She placed first in the 2018 national and international Women's 50+ Division.

    In this class, Master Yograttan Dev Kapil will lead athletes through yoga drills with a particular focus on "twisting" postures, including postures like Marichyasana C, Marichyasana D and Pasasana. The drills that Dev leads give students a warm up to help prepare their bodies to build awareness and muscle memory. Through this 90 minute class, you will experience a deeper execution and safe expression of postures.
