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

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 the three classic inversions: – 

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

But we will explore a range of arm balancing including: – 

• Tittibasana / firefly, 
• Parsva Bakasana / side crow and 
• Eka Pada Koudiyasana / split leg arm balance, 
• but there will be more to explore. 

We will cover alignment techniques, strength elements, the embodiment of inversions and safely taking weight on your arms and hands. We will build up progressively working on upper body stamina, core conditioning and wrist awareness. 

Prerequisites: Comfortable with doing a headstand against the wall.
