Jedi Training and The Dharma of Star Wars

Being a yogi is not about nailing a handstand or snapping the best Instagram shot. Nor is being a Jedi about having the flashiest light-saber skills or pod-racing wherewithal. In fact, both Star Wars and Yoga teach us that attachment to desire, e.g. the desire to stand on one hand while levitating rocks, is a path to the Dark Side.

Arm Balance Workshop "Learning to Fly"

Learning to Fly: An Arm Balance Intensive - Part 1

RESERVE YOUR SPOT HERE

Join Davis as he breaks down arm balances into the essential components that will allow students to incorporate them into vinyasa sequences. Arm balances can be decoded into building blocks that are an integral part of our everyday practice. Strength is not as important as understanding these invaluable tools that will allow students to fly and flow.

Often intimidating, arm balances can be accessible by having the knowledge of how to approach them with a strong foundation and practicing awareness of your body. We will cover proper alignment and engagement at key places in the body to help achieve these empowering poses. During the workshop, students will get a chance to learn and practice:

- Properly engaging the upper body muscles

- Focusing on alignment in order to rely less on muscular strength

- Engaging key points of contact in the body to leverage and lift off the ground

Arm balances allow us to cultivate strong energy and add dynamism into sequences, alert the nervous system, and build confidence. Muscle engagement and energetic focal points vary depending on the pose. Aligning and working with this system establishes a strong base and releases a waterfall of benefits for the mind, body and spirit.

Included in the workshop will be arm balances such as Bakasana (crow pose), Parsva Bakasana (side crow), Tolasana (scale pose), Koundiyanasana I and II as well as variations and transitions. Find your confidence, strength and balance and come fly with us!
