UPSIDE DOWN, INSIDE OUT…
Arm balances, head stands and hand stands can be exhilarating, fun, frustrating and perhaps a little bit scary all in the same breath. The strength and control we
build can be helpful in finding stability in the practice as we learn to keep a connection between the upper body and core. The element of focus
required is a good challenge for the mind, and overcoming fears to find the point of effortless balance whilst upside down can be somewhat satisfying.
In this workshop we will look at a few head stand variations, arm balances that may help you on your upside down journey and finally the hand stand. We will explore different ways of entering a handstand and some variations for those who have mastered free balancing and want to be challenged a little further. We will also look at some of the fears that may arise when putting ourselves upside down and develop strategies for overcoming them.
