An afternoon session to delve into the world of balancing on your hands. Have you ever been baffled by arm balances? Is it strength? Is it flexibility? Or is it overcoming the fear?


We will cover the three classic inversions: –
Sirsasana / headstands,
PIncha Maryasana / forearm balances and


Exploring a range of arm balancing including: –
Tittibasana / firefly,
Parsva Bakasana / side crow and
Eka Pada Koudiyasana / split leg arm balance, there will be more to explore.


This workshop is ideal for those who are comfortable being upside down, with a regular yoga practice and who are keen to discover more about their hands and arm balancing potential. We will cover alignment techniques, strength elements, the embodiment of inversions and safely taking weight on your arms and hands. We will build it up progressively working on upper body stamina, core conditioning and wrist awareness.


Prerequisites: Should be able to do a headstand against a wall for 15 seconds.
