LEVEL 1 ARM BALANCES AND INVERSIONS
Friday 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
This workshop is perfect for students starting an inversion practice, or for teachers looking for tips to help beginner students. We will cover the fundamentals of inverting, and learn how to use the wall and other props to get you started safely on this journey.
No upside-down experience required, just a positive outlook and a desire to learn.
LEVEL 2 ARM BALANCES AND INVERSIONS
Saturday 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
In this workshop, we will dive deeper into the trickier elements of inverting: handstand pressing, floating in sun salutations, transitioning in and out of arm balances, and many more drills to take with you to your home practice.
*Prerequisites: a comfortable crow pose and some experience upside-down.
LEARN TO FLOAT
Saturday 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Learn to float! This workshop will cover the basics of floating: Pranayama/Breath work, Bandhas/Core control, and Focus/Meditation practices. Using the discipline of Ashtanga Yoga, we will cultivate strength and grace in the movements, building to a pike press handstand and a floating Jedi Sun Salutation.
All levels welcome.
YOGA FOR STRENGTH & MOBILITY
Sunday 10:00 am – 12:00 pm
Learn techniques to make your yoga practice stronger. In this workshop, we will use body weight exercises to build arm and shoulder stability, core control, and a stronger pair of legs.
All levels welcome.
ROCKET YOGA CLASS
Sunday 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm
Rocket Yoga is a dynamic and challenging sequence, combining poses and transitions from Ashtanga’s Primary, Second, and Third Series. In this class, you can expect a little bit of everything: arm balances, backbends, deep twists, and of course, inversions. Be ready to work hard and play hard. All levels welcome.
