The Art of Arm Balances

Wednesday 8/25

10:00-12:00pm 

Let’s face it: arm balances are like the Rubiks Cube of yoga. Each one is awe-inspiring and uniquely different and challenging. However, the positioning of these postures can often puzzle us due to their demand for effort, strength, attention to detail, and awkward body configurations. Like a plane, you must synergistically piece together many parts to both prepare and take flight safely. Unfortunately, without the proper understanding and proprioceptive feedback, we tend to accelerate ourselves into these postures without adequate knowledge of making it work for our unique anatomy.

In this workshop, we will break down the dynamics of these postures and how linking the relationships of our parts to the poses can lead to breakthroughs in balance. Take a moment to step back from the demanding elements required, and hone in on the critical areas you need more attention to detail to enable you to lift off and stay up.

You'll Leave Understanding:

▴ Shoulder, hip, leg and core foundations

▴ Several techniques and variations for lift off

▴ How to utilize blocks for your arm balance modifications

▴ Your unique areas of work

▴ Drills to strengthen the upper back, legs, and core

Rates:

Single Session: Early Bird (register by 8/1) $35 // Regular $50

Both Sessions: Early Bird (register by 8/1) $65 // Regular $95

Happy Handstands

Wednesday 8/25

1:30 - 3:30pm

Inversions are not only mentally scary but also physically complex.  However, Inversions allow us to build inner strength and confidence to move through obstacles on and off our mat.

This workshop will break down the complex body areas that need to be appropriately warmed up and engaged in executing flight. We will also look at anatomical and energetic habits that get in the way of getting up. Next, learn how to structurally set yourself up for success through proper alignment, body coordination, muscular activation, and a deep understanding of the relationship between the shoulder & core for stability and balance. Finally, as you gain confidence, you'll learn several techniques to help you levitate with grace and ease.

Often breaking down our own mental boundaries can also tap us into the potential within. Learn to handstand to feel lighter, brighter, and happy.
