This workshop is structured toward helping the student understand the importance of transitions in the Ashtanga method, and learn to establish techniques and methods necessary to eventually master the floats.
We will tackle arm balances from a number of perspectives, fully integrating our arms into a variety of poses and transitions. Some experience with Ashtanga yoga is recommended.
We will review and break down how to approach jumping forward from down dog and jumping back from standing, jumping through to seated and back from seated, and more of the transitions in the primary series of Ashtanga Yoga.
Be prepared to sweat as we review stretches and strengthening exercises, to find your inner strength and courage to lift “up” as you move through your practice.
Everyone needs to pay attention to their mobility rather than just flexibility. This takes your practice from the mat and into your lives.
