A two hour and a half-hour introduction to the world of balancing on your hands.

Have you ever been baffled by arm balances? Is it strength? Is it flexibility? Or is it overcoming the fear?

We will cover the foundations to the three classic inversions: –

  • Sirsasana / headstands,
  • Pincha Maryasana / forearm balances and
  • handstands.

Exploring some of the basic elements to arm balancing including: –

  • Tittibasana / firefly,
  • Bakasana / crow and
  • there will be more to explore.

This workshop is ideal for those who are comfortable being upside down, with a regular yoga practice and who are keen to discover more about their hands and arm balancing potential. We will cover alignment techniques, strength elements, the embodiment of inversions and safely taking weight on your arms and hands. We will build it up progressively working on upper body stamina, core conditioning and wrist awareness.
