A fun vinyasa flow class designed to get your feet up off the mat — that means lots of arm balances and inversions – with the chance to explore how physical challenges can teach us real-world lessons! With variations for everyone from arm balance beginners to the expert, we will move through a fun sequence of transitions and balances that will get the whole body involved.
Saturday, February 15 | 9:30 to 12:00pm
Using the wall for inversions is a wonderful way to increase strength and learn techniques for your inversions, but sometimes we get stuck there! In this workshop we will look specifically at how to face your fears and improve your technique for becoming independent in your inversions and not rely on the wall. By delving into the reasons we become dependent on the wall, we will establish a foundation of physical balance and inner trust in ourselves to take our inversions to the middle of the room!

This fun and flowing vinyasa class will take you through familiar postures but in an unfamiliar way. Explore the difference that you feel when you move into and out of postures without using your hands to get you there! This class may challenge you, but not in the way you think — it’s about understanding ourselves a little deeper and sometimes that means our egos take a bruising. So that’s why we’ll laugh and just have fun with it as we move through these variations that will get the whole body moving, opening, and feeling great!

The hollowback shape is a variation of heart opening postures that can open up spaces in the body neglected by many traditional backbends. In this workshop we will unlock the upper back, chest, and shoulders and move through the many variations of a hollowback. With many examples and tips for adding these into your practice, you may begin to see ALL of your backbends transform!

Let’s redefine the backbend and understand how it fits in the modern world. In this workshop we will look at the anatomy of a healthy, safe, and empowering backbend and how this relates to the posture we take to our yoga practice from our modern lifestyles. This is a workshop for anyone wanting to take their backbends to the next level, knowing that doesn’t necessarily mean going deeper. We will explore some fun but challenging movements in ways that empower and strengthen, and build self-trust. As with all workshops with Adell, this will give you tools and tips to take into your existing yoga practice so you can carry on implementing what you learn in this workshop for weeks, months, and years to come!
