Standing Poses


Standing poses are the foundation to an asana practice. They require focus, balance, strength and flexibility. In this workshop, we will break down the component parts of some key basic standing poses. Embodying a deep and skillful understanding of their classical form is not a basic endeavor, but an advanced one, as the possibilities for refinement are endless. The awareness built here helps one to be strong and step forward in all poses.

Full Weekend:  $125 / $110 early bird through July 1

Backbends


In yoga asana, the shoulder and hip regions are sometimes referred to as the four corners of the body. When we stabilize and mobilize the shoulders and hips, it can lead to a greater sense of freedom in the spine. In this class, we will access possibility in the hips and shoulders via rotation, extension and flexion. This four-corner focus creates more spaciousness throughout the spine as we dive into back bending postures.

Saturday, July 25 3:00-6:00pm



Hip Openings and Arm Balances


What is required to do an arm balance is so much more than arm strength. Depending on the type of arm balance, it can be extremely beneficial to open your hips to make the shapes more accessible. Also, intricate and nuanced strengthening actions can help the poses become light and buoyant. In this workshop, we will explore and break down the component parts of some arm balance postures. Regardless of whether you take flight, you will practice hip opening postures and learn detailed strengthening actions, along with some fun tricks to progress you on the path.
