Workshop at Simply Yoga Lemont, IL
Inversions And Arm Balances
July 9th, Sun 12:00pm – 2:00pm
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!
Shoulders And Heart Openers
July 9th, Sun 2:30pm – 4:30pm
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!).
