Arm Balances & Inversions


Saturday and Sunday, November 10-11, 2018

Saturday, Sept 15, 1-3:30pm:  INVERSIONS MADE EASY

Inversions have a reputation for being among the most challenging poses in yoga, but when broken down and practiced with intention it becomes evident these postures are steeped in the fundamentals. This workshop will use drills, demos, discussion, and practice-time to break down headstand, fore-arm stand, and handstand, including their modifications, variations, and next steps. You’ll learn how to prep your body for an inversion practice, ways to build the strength and awareness necessary for going upside-down, and how to do these poses mindfully for ultimate progress. Hot topics such as how to ween yourself away from the wall and wrist maintenance will also be covered. Great for beginners and experienced inverters alike!

You’ll learn how to prep your body for poses done on your hands, ways to build the strength and awareness necessary for balancing on your arms, and how to do these poses mindfully for ultimate progress. Whether you love exploring these poses or are just beginning to work through them, this is your chance to learn how to include them in your practice in any capacity.

Great for beginners and experienced inverters alike!
