Weekend Workshop at Practice Indie, Indianapolis, IN
Friday, Apr 28th: Twists and Detoxify, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m.
Get ready to purge, cleanse body and mind from unnecessary junk stored and come out rejuvenated and renovated. Twists are a great tool to help us do so and they’re also incredibly versatile, with an enormous amount of possibilities and applications. Whether it’s sitting, standing, doing an arm balance or going upside down, when we throw a spinal twist into the mix, it makes things a lot more interesting. Come prepared to work hard, have a great time and leave feeling years younger. Some euphoria might arise as a side effect, beware!
Saturday, Apr 29th: Inversions and Arm Balances, 12:00 – 2:00 p.m.
Whether you’re intimidated of going upside down or you can dive into those without much trouble, this class will help you take one step further (or more!). Arm balances and inversions share a lot of common principles, body activation, upper body alignment, core/low back engagement,…Improve your endurance, balance, learn better alignment, efficiently use your resources and let’s work on the ones that don’t come that easy. Open your mind to a sweaty and fun class and get ready to conquer these asanas, one try at a time! Lots of wall work guaranteed as well as time on your arms (some breaks too!) so, if you have shoulder/elbow/wrist issues, please inform us and be ready to modify according to your needs. Let’s go!
Saturday, Apr 29th: Hip Openers: Road to Yogidandasana, 2:30 – 4:30 p.m.
If you’ve never attempted Yogidandasana you’re in for a treat. If you have, this class will expand the array of poses you can do with it and will leave you inspired for more. Whether your hips are ‘opened’ or ‘tight as a clam’, this class is for everyone wanting to access them in a safe and fun way. People with knee, ankle or back issues, or with a sedentary lifestyle, will benefit greatly and find some of these stretches directly applicable. Come with an opened mind, opened heart, and it’ll directly reflect in the hip work we’ll be doing. Sweat and good times assured!!
Sunday, Apr 30th: Shoulders and Heart Openers, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Backbends are not just about a bendy spine. A healthy shoulder mobility is necessary to accommodate those degrees of folding. The neck and front of our bodies, especially from the shoulder girdle to the low ribs, have tremendous range and can amplify and help our back’s work. Unfortunately, that area is heavily guarded, protected, sometimes shut down due to our lifestyles. Come turn back the clock, decompress, lift some weight off your shoulders, reset and open your heart and mind to new possibilities. Learn stretches that’ll help you in your daily life as well as your personal practice and leave rejuvenated and transformed. No prerequisites required. This class is for all levels and degrees of flexibility (or lack of!).
