Learn how to fly by integrating every aspect of Yourself and changing your relationship to Gravity. In this 3 hour workshop co-teachers Michael Hewett and Gina de la Chesnaye will share and breakdown the fundamentals of arm balances and inversions such as Bakasana (Crow), Sirsasana 1, 2 and 3 (Headstand and it's many variations), Ashtavakrasana (8-Limbed Pose), Adho Mukha Vrksasana (Handstand) as well as Nirlamba Sarvangasana (Hands Free Shoulderstand) and many others.
Foundational and universal alignment principals will be shared in a safe, playful & non-competitive environment. Its not necessary to do the full expression of the poses to receive the benefit! We will share the spectrum of variations along with the deeper alchemical/energetic dimensions within the poses.
If you have ever felt that you could do any of this with just a little more wherewithal, time to figure them out or want to work on advancing what you already know, this is the workshop.
