Morning|Funky Flow and Fundamentals for Taking Flight: 3 hours
Inversions, join Erin for her master class that focuses on the art of counterbalancing and the incorporation of inversions for the practice. We will add weight and use momentum to explore fluidity and with each turn we will dazzle our practice with primal movements, wrist care, core integration, spatial awareness, jumping and handstand drills, and more! All levels are welcome. If you are new, be NEW! It all doesn’t come in a day. If you are experienced, come with a beginner’s mind! Now let’s find out what all the fuss is about, get sweaty and have some fun.
Afternoon|Building Strength from the Ground UP: 3 hours
If you experience tenderness in the wrists in weight-bearing postures and want to learn the value of distributing force through the ground for handstand, down-dog, and plank, this workshop is for you. Erin and Anthony will be offering ways to get the most out of the poses we often overlook. We will take a serious look at transitions like stepping up to the top of the mat, making subtle shifts individually to maximize our engagement within the movements. After this ride, we will end with a special closing meditation and personal journaling segment with Anthony.
Meet Erin & Anthony:
Since 2018, Erin and Anthony have been collaborating together as educators for the 200 and 300-hour yoga teacher training programs with Authentic Movements. Erin is a traditionally trained yoga practitioner who’s stimulated by creatively altering routine practice into logical and exciting sequencing. Anthony’s background in exercise, performance, and physiology brings an extraordinary range of teachings from strength to the subtleties of awareness. They both love pulling from other fields, breaking down traditions and common movements to see how minor shifts alter the entire experience. You can often catch them in the gym or yoga studio after hours making fun of each other and acting like children to come up with fresh and unusual ways to express both the use and dismissal of concepts and opinions. If you wish to add handstands into your flow or find more engagement in postures like downward dog and plank, the building blocks are surprisingly similar. We will focus on the foundations, encapsulating the tools necessary for beginners to more advanced practitioners. In this series of workshops, you’ll learn how to build awareness around the wrists and the importance of your connection to the ground for the longevity of your practice. The wrists are arguably the most important asset to the yoga practice. From down dog to handstand, being able to load the hands is essential for the beginner to the advanced practitioner, which is why we are bringing the Feelio Blocks along for this workshop! We look forward to seeing you there, Erin & Anthony.
