Looking to get deepen your yoga practice?
In this workshop, we focus on body alignment using the AntiGravity® Harrison Hammock. We work through the challenges that may come with balancing postures on the mat, both standing and inverted, by utilizing the Harrison Hammock to support and lift the body.
We will explore standing tall in warrior poses, one legged balances, and inversions. The goal is to understand how correct alignment can improve and stabilize your balance and thus deepen your practice. We break down challenging postures using the Harrison Hammock so that when you take your practice back to the mat, your practice will become a lot lighter and easier.
All levels are welcome!

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.
Foundations (9:30am – 12:30pm) – Learn basic core strength conditioning, hands’ placements, shoulder opening and many more important skills to prepare yourself for a safe and sound handstand. This is where you will learn what it is like to stand on your handstands, correct alignment and how to conquer your fear. Beginners welcome.
