arm balance workshop

February 23, 2019


Join Lisa Bermudez for this two-hour workshop where we'll break down and demystify the concept of arm balances.  Whether you're an advanced practitioner, a teacher, or brand new to the yoga practice, you'll walk away with some new tips and tricks for your practice!  The poses that are labeled "arm balances" are sometimes called arm balances because it looks like the practitioner is only using their arms to keep their body off the ground.  However, these poses require the entire body (not just our arms) to engage so we can find lift and balance.  Learn how to fine tune your practice or create a safe entry point into your new relationship with these shapes!
