The second instalment of a three-workshop offering.  You will delve into the world of inversions and arm balances; explore the art of human counterbalances; and discover the art of flying therapeutics.

This is a journey into the foundations of balance through inversions and arm balances; calibration & collaboration through counterbalances; and the conscious touch of healing arts through flying therapeutics.

The list of offerings are as follows: –

  1. Exploring Inversions & Arm Balances: Sunday 14th October 2018, 2.30pm – 5.30pm
  2. The Art of Counterbalances: Sunday 11th November 2018, 2.30pm – 5.30pm
  3. Exploring Flying Therapeutics:  Sunday 9th December, 2.30pm – 5.30pm

The Art of Counterbalances 

Counterbalances are when weight is used as a lever to reduce the effort of lifting loads, thereby enabling the balance of another weight.  We will look at how this can be applied to individuals working together as a pair and what potential balances can be created.

We will up look into the push-pull nuances of balance; the engagement and release that allows stability in both symmetrical and asymmetric structures and how to safely build interesting shapes and poses.  Explore the wonders of human counterbalances, delve into your creative potential. 

A regular body awareness practice would be a good advantage.  Come or your own or as a pair; we will get to mix and match with everyone in the room.

If you want to go fast, go alone.  If you want to go far go together (African Proverb).
