Freedom on the Hands: A Workshop for Arm Balance Postures
with Nadine Channoui
Saturday, October 14 (12:15-1:45 p.m.)
Arm balances have a way of funneling our attention into the present moment. Far more important than lifting off the ground is the poignant connection between mind and body that arm balances promote. This workshop will focus on opening, strengthening, and aligning the body for arm balance postures.
We will pay particular attention to the upper body, including the shoulders, wrists, and back, and will concentrate on the alignment and redistribution of weight toward the hands. Practitioners will also be invited to observe how the mind adapts to the journey as we shift our attention from our feet to our hands. Those students interested in working on arm balance postures beyond this workshop will also be provided with ideas for preparatory exercises that can be done at home.
