with Savonn Wyland
Thursdays, May 24th and 31st (7:30 – 8:45pm)
at Sellwood Yoga
May 24th: Handstand Tune Up
May 31st: Forearm Balance Tune Up
Next session: July 12th, 19th, 26th
$20/per session; limited to 14 students per session.
In this series of mini-workshops, we will focus on “tuning up” your Headstand (Sirsasana), Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana) and Forearm Balance (Pincha Mayurasana). Detailed instruction and skillful techniques will be suggested in order to add variety, make modifications, and entertain possibilities. We will demystify what actions are necessary to help you experience a safe and supported inverted and arm balancing practice. We will also work with dispelling fear and building courage.
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. Inversions are considered to be fundamental in any serious yoga practice. Many students fear, struggle and/or are confused about inversions and arm balancing poses. Lots of teachers no longer include them in mixed level classes.
Sign up for all 3 mini workshops at $45 for the set and save $15 or pay for 1 or 2 individual sessions at $20/session.
