Slow Flow and Meditation Friday May 31st 7:30-9pm
This class will begin with 75 minutes of movement- a slow flow that builds into a vinyasa that will leave you feeling both open and strong. There will be modifications for beginners and amplifications for those with more experience, such as options for deeper backbends and inversions. The last 15 minutes of class will be a guided meditation to gently bring you into deeper relaxation. All levels welcome.
Inversion Workshop Saturday June 1st 1-3pm
This workshop is focused on refining the foundation of your practice in order to build the strength and awareness 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.
There will be some breakdown of headstand, but expect to focus on forearm stand and handstand- working on controlled entrances and exits, as well as learning how to safely fall. 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.
Liquid Spine: Backbends for Everyone Sunday June 2nd 1-3pm
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 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.
