All Levels Flow and Guided Relaxation
This class will begin with 60 minutes of movement- a slow flow that builds into a vinyasa with modifications for beginners and amplifications for those with more experience. The last 15 minutes of class will be a guided meditation to gently ease you into deeper relaxation. All levels welcome and encouraged to come!
Liquid Spine Workshop (Backbends for Everyone)
Join Irene for this workshop to bend, twist, fold, and strengthen your body so that you can free the movement of your spine. Beginning with a short discussion and meditation, you will be guided through Irene’s warm up sequence to break down different elements of spinal movement with a special focus on hip and shoulder flexibility. She will then show you her favorite drills for building spine strength and safely increasing your body’s range of motion. All levels welcome with an open mind. This is also a perfect workshop for instructors looking for safe ways to help their students build stronger, safer backbends in their practice.
Advanced Flexibility Workshop
This workshop is specifically for those with a consistent practice that are looking for ways to deepen their flexibility in their back bending and beyond. Irene will share tips and tricks learned from circus performers, contortionists, and hand balancers in order to help you safely explore new depths. Expect to see things like flipping the grip in poses like bow and dancer, and bringing the feet to the head for cobra and eventually scorpion, over splits, chest stands, and partner stretching. This workshop will be catered to the group based on each individual's goals.
This workshop is focused on refining the foundation of effortless inversions in order to explore more advanced techniques. Irene will break down the stepping stones to a more graceful inversion and arm balance practice, starting with basic drills to build the strength and flexibility required to balance on your hands and upside down. Expect to focus on forearm stand and handstand- working on controlled entrances and exits. Don't worry, if you're not comfortable upside down Irene will give you steps to get there. All are welcome as long as you can do dolphin pose.
