Heart Hip and Core Flow (Master Class/Workshop)
Our current way of living tends to foster rounding of the shoulders, slouching of the torso and tight hips do to sitting at a desk or even activities like riding a bike, etc. During this all-levels well-balanced workshop (or master class), we’ll gradually flow into deeper and deeper shoulder and hip openers, backbends and core work. The practice will be rounded out by lengthening the hamstrings and working on and balancing postures. You are sure to leave the class feeling very open and strong from head-to-toe, and skin-to-bone!
2:30 – 4:30pm
Demystifying Arm Balances
In this workshop style vinyasa flow class, you will be given step-by-step instructions and specific techniques to safely, and successfully, “take off” in the following arm balances. Each pose will be broken down into three stages, making the class accessible for all levels. We will explore Bakasana (Crane Pose), Parsva Bakasana (Side Crane), Galavasana (Flying Pigeon Pose), Astavakrasana (Eight-Angle Pose), Visvamitrasana (Visvamitra’s Pose). You’ll also receive a handout that visually breakdowns of each pose so you can continue to practice the progression of these arm balances at home.
