ARM BALANCES & INVERSIONS WORKSHOP
FRIDAY 26th JULY 2019 - 5.30-7.30pm
Learn to use your hands as feet and turn your world upside down in this workshop to guide you into arm balances and inversions. Each one will be broken down, giving you better understanding of how to fight the fear and take flight.
If these excite you – great! If youre afraid of them, this workshop should be enough to give you the confidence you need and spark your curiosity.
But why? In our daily life we actually use our upper body very little. The muscles involved like the back, core and shoulders therefore weaken over time. This can lead to not only shrinking of the muscles but of the independence we take for granted like carrying bags, lifting things – even holding ourselves up. Arm balances also help us to build confidence, act as a reminder that its fine to wobble and have fun!
Inversions, whether the challenging headstand or the gentle standing forward fold all increase blood flow to the brain with benefits such as : increased energy, improved concentration, detoxifying through stimulating the lymphatic system, core and upper body strength, building confidence, breaking habits and changing perspective.
You will leave with a skillset to support you and develop your practice safely and with a better understanding of the hows and whys.
There will be time to break down the elements involved, ask questions and feed your curiousity – and of course, try, try and try again – laughing and wobbling is essensial.
No experience ith arm balancing or inversions is necessary, however this workshop is not suitable for those pregnant or complete beginners.
