Saturday Session 1: The Phoenix Flow - Functional Master Flow
The Phoenix is a mythical being that has the transformative power to bring about personal growth and renewal. In this master class, you get to explore the endless possibilities and minor shifts within your body and mind to rise beyond your own limits!
This signature class has it all; a creative flow, mobility and strength drills, and functional movement. You will get a sneak peek into Hiro's own practice which sets his body and mind to follow his heart fully into whom he wishes to be in this world on a daily basis. This class aims to make the discomfort of growth and progress a welcoming and loved process through powerful intentions paired with an out-of-the-box flow to physically foster the growth mindset.
Saturday Session 2: Smarter Shoulders for Backbends
Learn the physiology of your shoulders and how it relates to your backbends. This class will incorporate shoulder openers and strengtheners to make your backbends more functional while building stability. Using tools from Hiro's Body Smart Yoga Shoulder Program, this flow will leave you feeling more aware of proper shoulder engagements for your body while exploring the heart-opening postures you love from a new perspective.
As you flow through this all-level class, we will debunk the common myths you hear about shoulder rotation and engagement. Your shoulders, like your hips, are not linear. Hiro's teachings will focus on how to engage your muscles without over-straining them and help you increase shoulder strength and mobility to better understand your own practice and help you safely move through each asana.
Sunday Session 1: Intelligent Inversions
Let’s get over the fear of inverting and bring a playful and smart approach to your inversions. In this class, you get to dive deep into the anatomy of your inversion practice and learn the proper engagement of our supporting muscles to optimize your progression and growth. Learn some of Hiro's secret tips and tricks for a healthy, safe, and FUNctional practice.
This workshop is open to all levels. We will flow to warm up the body, followed by some of Hiro's favorite drills to build a more consistent inversion, and end with some of the most effective cooldowns to foster longevity and recovery to maintain a healthy balance in the body and mind.
Sunday Session 2: Smarter Hips
Our hips are an integral part of body function, especially for our backs and knees. This class is based on Hiro's recently released Body Smart Yoga: Hips Program. We will start with a hip mobility warm-up, then move into a creative flow that incorporates drills and breakdowns of hip postures.
Throughout this class, you will feel and move through different kinds of evidence-based stretches and drills that are unique and not part of a typical yoga class. There will also be a full self-assessment of end-range hip mobility to feel the difference in your hips from the beginning to the end of your practice.

Hiro began teaching yoga in 2007 while pursuing a dual master's degree in medical pharmacology and cardiopulmonary surgery. Ultimately, he realized he had a greater purpose in life: to help more people through the power of Yoga.
With his knowledge of anatomy and science, he developed Body Smart Yoga (BSY): a style of yoga that helps heal injuries along with increasing functional strength, flexibility, and emotional intelligence.
Hiro's ultimate mission is to empower his students to find a deeper awareness of their physical and emotional bodies through detailed self-assessment and injury prevention and to break through their self-limiting beliefs.
We are gathering at the beautiful van Houten Church in Amsterdam-Weesp, only a 15-minute train ride from Amsterdam Central Station. This beautiful church with wooden floors offers a unique atmosphere and all the comfort you need for this training. During your lunch break, you can have a stroll along the picturesque canals in Weesp. There are different lunch options and stores, or you can enjoy the weather sitting on one of the terraces by the water.
