Arm Balances and Inversions Weekend with Mari Dickey
Saturday June 24th and Sunday June 25th
Take your practice to the next level. Be willing to get uncomfortable and to be vulnerable as you challenge the body and the mind to new shapes. Create new pathways and find new perspective by learning to get rooted through your hands rather than your feet. Find the balance between 'stirra' and 'sukkah' so your arm balance and inversion practice can be strong, fluid and sustainable.
Saturday June 24th, 2917 130-4pm
Ignite the fire and stability within. Be brave and learn to trust yourself to take flight.
In this workshop we will delve into the world of arm balances from basic to advanced. Students often over-rely on force when working on these poses rather than learning to understand the essential actions and movements. We will explore intense prep work for wrists and shoulders, as well as play with deep core strengthening. We will work to develop techniques that will help your body understand the mechanics and leverage of arm-balances so they can be safely and more effortlessly weaved into your practice.
Sunday June 25th, 2017 130-4pm
Open your heart and steady your mind-find new perspective as you get comfortable upside down.
In this workshop we will play with sweet twists, deep heart openers and delve into the powerful world of inversions. We will build on the prep work, core strengthening techniques and arm balances from Saturdays' workshop, as well as strengthen and open the shoulder and the spine. Take this opportunity to play upside down and to build strength, learn greater body awareness, focus and patience. Learn and feel how to develop the power in your core and the lightness in your body through bandhas and breath. Come play. Open your heart and let yourself fly freely and fearlessly.
