Day 2 - Sunday 16th September 10.00-17.00
Part one; “From Plank, to Pendant”
A workshop on building foundation strength for your Arm Balances.
This workshop explores the fundamentals of stability and mobility for a range of arm balances - starting with postures like plank, and working our way through crow, side crow, crane, epk, flying pigeon, pendent, single leg crow, crane to handstand if you want...
Through understanding how we build a solid foundation, the practice can then be built upon.
Please don't feel put off by some of the postures mentioned, this workshop will be adapted based on the group of the day - looking at the postures that feel most relevant to the group - so come along and have some fun with us.
Part Two; Mindful Mobility
Starting at the toes and working up to your head, this workshop will cover an array of different stretching techniques. In this workshop, Dan will take you through a full body stretching experience. Incorporating and educating you in various stretching techniques and modalities. This workshop aims to give you a deeper insight into your own body, and how to work with it in a more mindful way. Building a map of the tension areas in your body, and then learning to work with them.
Built from the awareness that each and every human body is different, we have different habitual and holding patterns that effect our bodies and the way we move. Through experimenting with various postures & stretching techniques, you will begin to understand your own body more – where you hold tension, and where you have blockages and limitations.
Not only will you become more mindful of your body in this workshop, you will learn how you can release that tension to create a little more ease in your body - and how through this knowledge we can begin exploring the progressions of postures such as Hanumanasana (Front Split), and Urdvha Dhanurasana (Bridge) and of course many more.
