This workshop will explore ways to practice and refine yoga practitioner's skills in the art of arm balancing. We will work our way from some of the simpliest lifts and transitions of Asthanga's Primary Series, play with increased levels of difficulty in some second series arm balances, and finally touch on the demanding and powerful balances of third series.
Understanding shoulder position and stability is a natural compliment to achieving some of the more advanced arm balancing postures of the third series. Shoulder positions, a mobile spine and pelvis that forward bending and side bending require will serve as tools for take off. This will be a fun, light-hearted class with lots of room for exploration, hands-on adjustment, and questions.
Day Christensen is a Level II Authorised Teacher from the K. Patthabi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute (KPJAYI) in Mysore, India. She practises in the lineage of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, having completed the Intermediate series and learned the Third series under R. Sharath Jois’s guidance.
Day’s teachings are born from her own disciplined and dedicated practice. She encourages students to challenge themselves physically, whilst at the same time, be easy mentally.
She spends much of her year travelling internationally to teach at yoga studios around the world, and we’re very fortunate to have Day visit us for this special weekend of workshops. Her wisdom, passion for the practice, and vast anatomy and philosophy knowledge will guide us for months after she leaves us to return to her Miami studio and worldwide adventures.
