Join guest teacher and handstand enthusiast Dana Baniel, for this 2 hours 'play-shop' and learn the tools to go upside down.
Suitable for beginners and more experienced students, this workshop will take a systematic approach to trying, achieving and improving your handstand within a playful and supportive environment.
For many of us, the handstand is the scariest of inversions. This workshop will help you to overcome this fear, capturing a feeling of childhood playfulness and sense of freedom.
Working towards handstand is a gradual and integrated process where you build the foundations over time, with patience and care whilst learning to overcome our fears and physical barriers. You will leave this workshop with the knowledge of how to improve your strength, agility, flexibility and power so you can learn to fly.
Already, in handstand? Come along, perfect your alignment and have a fun and uplifting experience.
Outline of the workshop:-
- Introduction - Lovely warmup and strong warming pranayama (kapabahti) - Juicy flow practice focusing on core, hamstrings and shoulders. - Alignment. - 'So how do I actually get there?' Working with the wall, pairs and having fun doing cartwheels and jumps etc. - Closing up sequence, stretch and a lovely savasana.
Join Dana on December 2nd, from 12-2pm in the Dharma Studio at Edgedale Road.
