Arm Balances - Learn to Fly Yoga workshop
Sat 22 October 2016, 15:15 – 17:15 BST
Have you ever felt intimidated or frightened by the thought of arm balances and unsure of where to begin? If so, you’re not alone…it’s a common feeling among practitioners. Though with the right technique and preparation you’ll find they are easier than you think.
Arm balances can be empowering postures that teach us about inner strength, courage and balance, alongside embracing your innate playfulness. You’ll find a new sense of lightness that enables you to lift off the ground, face fears and improve your confidence!
This workshop will guide you through a vinyasa flow sequence, choreographed to help you into arm balances in a fun and accessible way. Remembering that many of of these poses take years before they feel stable and comfortable and the basics and techniques we explore in the workshop will be the perfect foundation for your ongoing practice.
