Arm-balance Workshop

In this workshop you will learn some of the most fun arm balances that you might come across in a yoga class, I will offer you a step by step movement progression, so that you can feel safe and supported throughout the session. You will learn the techniques to be able to find these poses in your own time when your body is ready.  Gaining the knowledge to learn how to lift off in a playful and supportive way. I will show you how to access the power of props to fully support your growing practice. But most importantly arm balances are humbling, they challenge our body's capabilities and drop us into the present moment.  They are a reminder that we are strong and anything is capable with time, practise and dedication.

What to expect

I will welcome you into our wonderful, playful space for the evening. We will start by settling our excitement with a mini mediation to get focused, release expectations and fear. Once we have dropped into the present moment we will being to get playful. 

Please note that there is never any judgment or expectations in my classes or workshops, we get on the mats to explore the capabilities and movements of our own bodies. 

Lets start the session off with some great strengthening exercises to get the body warmed up and open to trying new postures.  These exercises will help with the mechanics of finding the arm balance and have been specially created to switch on the muscles that we will be using, not only will we need to strengthen but also there will be some mobility exercises as well to create the space that will help support us on our journey towards these poses.  I will offer you a step by step movement progression so that you can feel safe and supported, learn the techniques and be able to find these poses in your own time when your body is ready.  You will learn to lift off in a playful supportive way, I will show you how to access the power of props to fully support your growing practice.

Arm balances are humbling, they challenge our body's capabilities and drop us into the present moment.  They are a reminder that we are strong and anything is capable with time, practise and dedication.  They are a powerful tool that can help us overcome fear and build trust in our bodies, i would argue that they offer the us the most important lesson of patience and being persistent towards our heart’s desires.
