Arm balances in general can help to increase strength, stability and agility. They are great poses to harness the power of concentration and focus while maintaining a playful and inspired attitude.
In this workshop, we will focus on Pincha Mayurasana (Feathered Peacock Pose aka Forearm or Elbow Balance) as well as Bakāsana (commonly called Crane/Crow pose).
Detailed instruction and skillful techniques will be suggested in order to add variety, make modifications, and entertain possibilities. We will also work with dispelling fear and building courage.
Contact Savonn (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have additional questions and/or concerns.
