INTRO to Arm Balances

with Lana Heintjes

Saturday, January 25 2-4pm

This fun, challenging workshop is designed to teach you how to do basic arm-balances with better technique and grace. While they do require some strength, we often think we need brute strength when working on these poses. However, if you understand the essential actions and movements, they can become way more attainable than you would imagine! This workshop will help you understand the nuts and bolts of arm balances and make them an inspiring part of your yoga practice. It takes time and practice and may not be attainable within 2 hours, however, you can still learn about what you can do to prepare your body to do it someday!

Intro to AcroYoga

Saturday, February 29th 12pm -1:30pm
With Lana Heintjes and Casey Richards
$25 on or before Feb 22nd

NO PARTNER NECESSARY – most people come to AcroYoga classes without a partner. There will be plenty of people to pair up with, and we mostly play in groups of 3.

Learn the basics of AcroYoga -a blend of partner yoga, acrobatics, and Thai bodywork. It’s more accessible than you might think – with proper alignment and technique, you can learn how to do seemingly gravity-defying partner poses. Lana and Casey will help you safely get into poses you never dreamed you could do. This practice also allows for juicy stretches and spicy strength building poses, giving you a full body workout while you play!

We end with a therapeutic cool down of Thai bodywork to leave you rested and energized. This is the most fun you’ll have yoga-ing with friends!
No acrobatic experience necessary!

Lana is a certified Level 2 AcroYoga International teacher since 2016.
Casey is a certified AcroFit teacher since 2018.
