Core Belt, Obliques & Strength
Friday, 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
To kick off the weekend, we’ll start by focusing on the body’s center, then build from there. This unique workshop will focus on all abs’ layers, lats, QL, proper engagement, arm balances, spinal rotations, Side Planks and some upside down time to put it all together. By concentrating on these ‘bigger’ muscles, a lot of stability and strength will be gained quickly. Come unlock that power house.
Inversions: Lines, Jumps & Balance
Saturday, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
This 2hr workshop will focus on a variety of entries into Handstand, drills, as well as partner work, to improve endurance, alignment and end of range, without sacrificing stability. We’ll pay especial attention to shoulder flexion, scapular elevation, thoracic isolation and pelvic tilts. We’ll also look for individual blind spots that prevent from advancing in our Handstand practice.
BBends: Finding More Thoracic Movement, Shoulder Flexion & Lumbar Support
Saturday, 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
This workshop will heavily focus on proper spinal segmentation, understanding the role of the scapulas as well as TVA & psoas. Watch for some specific isolated moves before putting things together. If your mid back feels ‘rigid’, your low back or shoulders ‘hurt’, or you ‘can’t find’ your abs when you do backbends, this class is for you.
Handstands: Floats, Tucks & Presses
Sunday, 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
This workshop will pay special attention to hamstrings, flexors and psoas, in order to hover, tuck and press into Handstand. Expect floor drills, wall and partner collab, as well as a thorough wrists’ warm up and a break down of the different shoulder positions required. The workshop is for all levels but ideal for those that can kick by themselves into Handstand against a wall.
Hip Openers: Hip Accessibility Towards Deeper ER/IR
Sunday, 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM
The last workshop will cover the elements necessary to actively mobilize hips in a safe way, protecting knees, while involving some of the strongest muscles (gluts, flexors, adductors, obliques…). We’ll visit both internal (IR) and external (ER) hip rotation in a non-threatening way, so that poses like Eka Pada Sirsasana (aka, leg behind the head) becomes a favorite!
