In this second workshop of a two-part series, you will learn how to take your inversions and arm balances practice to the next level. Building on what was covered during the “Exploring the upside down world’ workshop”, Marine will take the group through deeper variations of inversions including headstand, handstand, forearm stand, chin stand, as well as less traditional inversion poses, creative transitions and more.
Whether you want to play with funky pincha, chinstand scorpion, or understand how to straddle or pike press into a handstand this workshop is for you!
Note: this workshop is suited for intermediate to advanced practitioners. If you’re a beginner starting an inversion practice, it is recommended that you attend the first workshop and commit to working on the offered 4 weeks of drills and tips to get the most out of part two.
Marine has been an arm balances and inversions enthusiast since starting her yoga practice several years ago. Over the years, and with the help of her yoga mentors, she’s built a deep understanding of how to build strength, muscle activation and focus to explore the practice of going upside down and balancing on your head, arms and hands.
Marine always includes options for arm balances and inversions in her classes, and loves sharing her passion for those funny – sometimes challenging – poses with her students.
I love arm balances because they teach three very precious things: patience, focus and humility. You can’t cheat, pretend or skip ahead with arm balances and inversions, they keep you very honest with where you are at with your practice while opening a door to all your inner potential that maybe you didn’t realise you had. Those poses always bring you back to the present, and isn’t that what we all need to practice a bit more in today’s hyper-connected and busy world?
