In this workshop we will unveil the radiant potential of our arms, liberating ourselves from tragic misconceptions that prevent us from tasting some of the most delicious aspects of yoga practice. Too often ridiculed for being too short or too weak, our arms are just waiting for the opportunity to connect us with the breath and help us to do the impossible! We will tackle arm balances from a number of perspectives, fully integrating our arms into a variety of poses and transitions. Some experience with vinyasa yoga is recommended.
Jen has been a student of yoga since 2003 and enjoys making it accessible to everyone as she has learned it from her principal teacher, Richard Freeman.
Workshops provide an opportunity to look into aspects of theory and practice more deeply. They may include one or several modules and can be combined with kirtan or chanting, pranayama, philosophy, meditation and other mindfulness practices, private therapeutic consultations and more. In the past Jen has taught on the following topics: Ashtanga Yoga; Jivamukti Yoga; Connecting to the Earth; Digging Deep into the Hips; Backbending with Ease; Balancing & Inversions; Letting Go; Chakras and Relationship; Cleaning Out the Nadis; Demystifying Vinyasa Methodology; Bandhas, Floating and Handstands; The Marriage of Prana and Apana; Restoratives; Mysore-Style Ashtanga; Calming the Mind; Yoga Anatomy and Alignment; Yoga and the Brain; and Applying the Knowledge of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
