This workshop will explore the foundation of arm balancing, the physics of transferring your weight to your hands, and the playful mindset needed to maintain the balance and lose the fear. We will learn how to enter multiple poses safely with an emphasis on experimentation rather than perfectionism. We’ll warm and prepare the body using deep stretching and sun salutations. For our wrist health, various stretches will be employed for you to use at your disposal throughout your life on your mat. You can expect the following to be covered: *Crow (bakasana) *Side Crow (Parsva Bakasana) *Scissors (Eka pada koundinyasana II) *Twisted Scissors (Eka pada koundinyasana I) *Galavasana (from 1 legged chair) We may cover Tittibhasana (firefly), Elephant trunk & Astavakrasana (from a seat) for more advanced students.
Come with any questions and leave with a refreshed spirit and richer understanding of these amazing postures.
