STUDIO OR ONLINE : BEND SO YOU DON’T BREAK

Saturday, 30 January 2022
Sunday, 27 February 2022
1:30 PM – 3:30 PM
A Fine Balance – Upminster, Essex
Investment:

Studio : £25 Members / £30 Standard

Online : £15 Members / £20 Standard

Bundle : 4 x Studio Workshops £100 / 4 x Online Workshops £60

From prone to supine, asymmetric to kneeling, backbends, when done well with thought, care and attention have the ability to make you feel great! Though with less care and when rushed they just feel awful!

These two workshops will take you methodically through a series of backbends that will lengthen and strengthen the back chain of your body, create space and suppleness, with some unconventional drills to warm up.

Explore postures, understand the intention of the postures, why we do them, making subtle changes to take yourself into the depth of the pose that works best for you personally and embrace the sensations that arise. Quite often it’s the entering and exiting of backbends that feel a struggle, learn how to make them more accessible.

Split into two workshop sessions (you don’t have to join both but if the second one inspires you it would be good to attend the first. Equally if you join the first you don’t have to join the second.)

IN-STUDIO : Headstand Foundations

Saturday, 26th February 2022
2pm – 4pm
Ánimo Yoga, London E3

A step by step approach to creating a good stable foundation for your headstand.

Headstand is a fairly quiet pose in comparison to its playful counterpart, the handstand – and is traditionally placed towards the end of a yoga class or practise. However, over time the headstand has been looped into the “inversion” arena even though its benefits and introspective felt experience is quite different.

Thought of by some as a less bodily mechanical inversion than the others, there are actually more considerations to take into account when attempting to do headstand.

Workshop Expectations :

Understand the physical mechanics of headstand

Learn the nuances to consider beforehand

Explore how the length of your limbs affects hand placement and arm positioning in forearm headstand.

Approach this inversion with focus and a quiet mind.

Feel comfortable taking this inversion step by step with the choice to pause when it feels right for you to do so.

This workshop is open to everyone who would like to learn more about headstands and you don’t need any prior experience.
