Summer Arm Balance Workshops with Melissa Clark

Arm Balancing I: Saturday June 25th, 2016 12-2pm

We will explore the basics of arm balancing and discuss shoulder stability and core awareness to approach the arm balances found in primary and intermediate series of Ashtanga Yoga. We’ll learn Bakasana (crow pose), Tittibasana (Firefly), Pincha Mauyrasana (forearm balance) and Headstands. All students of yoga are welcome!

Arm Balancing II: Saturday July 23rd 12-2pm

We will discuss in depth the ashtanga method of posture, breath, and gazing place as we look at more challenging arm balances like galavasana, eka pada bakasana, and astavakrasana.

Building upon the foundation in Arm Balances I, students will research many of the arm balances found in the third series—vishvamistrasana, vasistasana, kukkutasana, galavasana, etc

Students who do not regularly practice Ashtanga are welcome to attend, as long as they are comfortable practicing pinchamayurasana (forearm stand) and other arm balances.

$25 for individual workshops or $40 for both. Sign up now!
