CHATURANGA & ARM BALANCES
Arm balances can be immensely empowering but also very frustrating. We aren’t all designed the same so it can often take a little experimenting with different techniques to find the best way into an arm balance. The key is to build the correct muscle memory and to continuously work on this in your practice. A lot of arm balances involve the body balancing on Chaturanga arms, and this is where the workshop will start.
Jess will guide you through a fun and dynamic vinyasa practice to prep the body by highlighting poses that help you build the correct muscle memory. Jess will focus on and breakdown Chaturanga and will work with students to build confidence and strength. Be ready to practice Crow (Bakasana), Side Crow (Parsva Bakasana), Flying pigeon (Eka Pada Galvanasana), Eka Pada Koundinyasana, Eight-Angle pose (Astavakrasana), one legged crow (Eka Pada Bakasana) and Dragonfly (Maksikanagasana).
This workshop is open to all levels but some experience in yoga is needed. Do not worry if you have not mastered an arm balance.
