  • If you are new to putting weight in your hands and going upside down we will break it down, step by step, and look at the foundations for a safe and rewarding practice. If you are an experienced arm balancer/inverter we will play with some challenging poses and transitions.

    Going upside down and placing weight through the hands can be scary at first, but we will support each other through a journey to balance and invert.

    We will look at some simple anatomy and practical tips to strengthen your body and your practice. You will be able take this knowledge forward into class and home practice.

    Benefits of arm balances
    Increased shoulder girdle and core strength
    Improved circulation
    Stimulation of wrist bone density
    Improved alignment and shoulder girdle stability
    Increased embodiment and focus
    and some kick-ass confidence!

    Some of the poses we will explore

    Bakasana and variations (Bakasana – Crane – straight, Kakasana – Crow – bent)
    Loloasana & tolasana (pendulum & scale pose)
    Eka pada koundinyasana (flying split)
    Astavakrasana (eight angle pose)

    Matt will be leading this workshop and he believes in the importance of a strong physical practice that enables us to remain active and vibrant despite our years on this earth. He also recognizes the deep connection between the breath, mind, and body. His belief is one cannot be strong if the other two are out of balance.
