Intro to Arm Balancing Workshop 1

9 February 2019 @ 15:00 - 17:00


Arm Balance and Inversions Workshop Series 1 – 3
Workshop 1; Saturday 9th February 3 -5pm

Arm balances and inversions can be a lot of fun. They are challenging but once you master them, they create a sense of achievement. However, sometimes in a normal led class whether that is ashtanga or vinyasa we don’t get much time to practice or refine the art of balancing on our hands and inverting ourselves.

In this workshop you will learn the fundamental techniques which you can apply to your everyday practice in order to successfully build the strength and flexibility required to balance on your hands and transition with ease and grace.

Workshop 1 – Fundamentals of arm balancing
The first workshop will teach you how to build the strength and flexibility for balancing on your hands. Learn how to engage your deep core throughout your regular yoga practice, whether that is vinyasa or ashtanga. You will learn how to isolate muscle groups to consistently build strength.

We will be working on poses such as; chaturanga (low plank) where you will learn how to do chaturanga in a way to build proper upper body and core strength. bakasana, (crow pose) Parsva Bakasana (side crow).

You will learn;

  • To increase strength and flexibility
  • How to distribute weight effectively
  • How to activate your deep core and isolate core muscle groups
  • How to move with grace and control through your practice and transitions into arm balance and inversion postures.
  • Build confidence in your own strength and ability

Get ready for some fun, and a whole lot of sweat as you learn to find your wings!

These workshops are for beginners to arm balancing or those who would like to understand how to refine their arm balancing practice further. You must have a regular yoga practice as all these workshops are not for complete beginners to yoga. If you are unsure whether a workshop is suitable for you please give me a call on 07894 213107.
