Led by Co-Founder of Flex, Heather Thomas Shalabi – this workshop will focus on finding the balance between flexibility and stability. Specifically, we’ll learn how to stabilize overly mobile joints such as the pelvis (for those with very flexible hamstrings), shoulders, elbows and wrists. Learning to properly stabilize joints prevents over-stretching ligaments and connective tissue, and will keep your yoga practice injury free. We will also concentrate on lower extremity alignment in standing asana. This workshop is even suitable for non-flexible practitioners who want to go deeper on learning proper alignment and stability techniques.
Handstands – the beautiful expression of strength, grace and concentration – is the goal of many yoga practitioners and body movement enthusiasts alike. And yet it is one of the most challenging and exhilarating forms of practice. In this two-part workshop, yoga and handstand teacher Victor Chau will guide you through the many techniques of safely entering the handstand and play with its different variations.
Through pair work, you will play and handstand in a fun environment with a partner.
