Arm Balances Transitions - March 9th, 3-5pm
Join Summit Yoga Teacher Linda Nguyen for the first of four workshops focused on advancing your vinyasa practice. This 2-hour workshop will focus on adding arm balances and inversions to your regular vinyasa practice. We’ll start by breaking down chaturanga alignment and modifications. Then we’ll look at poses we see all the time in class and how to advance poses by flowing into inversions and arm balances. We’ll first break down the arm balance/inversion, and then look and work through transitions to add them to your regular practice.
How to Use Props - March 23rd, 3-5pm
Join Summit Yoga Teacher Emily Jones for the second of four workshops focused on advancing your vinyasa practice. This 2-hour workshop will focus on how to use props in an advanced practice. We will first explore how to use props effectively to ease yourself into difficult poses. We will then explore how to use props in an advanced practice to further intensify already advanced poses. Props used will include straps, blocks, and blankets.
