Hathayoga Handstand & Forearm balances med Penny på Atmajyoti Yoga i Stockholm
Basics for learning how to Handstand and forearm balance
Handstands and Forearm balances – What’s the big deal about going upside down? To be honest it really is a personal experience and everyone who inverts will give you their reason. In my years of teaching inversions, I have seen people become more confident and at home in their body during practice. There’s improved balance, not only on the hands but in basic poses. Spontaneous, fundamental joy arises for most first time inverters. Fear becomes less obvious to the practitioner and determination of sorts unfolds in the practice. Sensing and internally bearing witness to one’s ’perceived’ physical and mental limitations simultaneously experiencing an ability that was previously untapped, at times leaves the practitioner aspiring to let go of limiting thoughts and behaviour. Developing skills and problem solving is also a part of the inverting phenomenon.
The classes I teach encourage and facilitate community spirit and care since the classes integrate a voluntary forum to work with each other, over time instilling trust and compassion within the group consequently carrying those same values into your external relationships.
This short 2-day workshop will give you pointers on how to prepare and set up for inverting. You may learn to appreciate that everyone’s body and mind is unique in its movement presentation and experience.
The aim is for you to walk away from the workshop feeling you have a better understanding of you, your self imposed limitations as well as recognising your strength, ability and possibilities. You will receive individual help where needed and develop a basic skill set to take the information learned into your yoga practice wherever that may be.
Prerequisite for this workshop:
Minimum of 10 people for workshop to commence.
Being patient, curious and respectful to yourself and others
6 months to 1 year regular yoga practice
