Explore Arm Balances & Inversions, Phase 1 with Jodi Fischtein

Saturday April 11, 2015 From: 2:30 PM – 4:30 PM   Let’s explore the fundamentals of inversions and arm balances in a calm and safe space. To warm up, we begin with a 20 minute vinyasa flow that will lengthen our hamstrings and open our hips. We will explore poses that recruit our bandhas (energy locks) for core abdominals and pelvic floor strengthening. Onwards to basic inversions and arm balances. We are seeking proper alignment with patience. If you are on your way to Kakasana (Crow) or deeper expressions such as Bakasana (Crane) we will also offer tips for connecting vinyasas or transitions. We are all at different stages so we will embrace those poses that feel good with use of blocks, straps and bolsters.  We may include exploration into inversions/arm balances such as:  – Salamba Sirsasana (Supported Headstand)  – Kakasana (Crow) with optional transitions to Chaturunga (Low Plank)  – Bakasana (Crane)  – Tripod Headstand into Bakasana  – Parsva Bakasana (Side Crow with a deep twist)  – Astavakrasana (Eight Angle Pose)  This 2 hour workshop is open to all levels, yet students should have a thorough understanding of yoga flow fundamentals. Smiling remains an advanced technique. An open dialogue is encouraged during this workshop.  Price: $45 per person | $40 for 889 Members.
