Arm Balances & Inversions
Ever wonder about the person next to you in class, balancing on their hands? Join Boston based guest teacher Alex Amorosi for a fun and challenging class designed to take your practice to the next level. This class will focus on arm balancing poses as well as basic inversions, such as handstand and forearm stand at the wall. We'll explore techniques to build shoulder strength and core strength and work on integrating this strength through the whole body to give you a feeling of power and lightness. This class is open to ALL levels, although 6 months of a regular yoga practice is recommended.
The Art of Teaching Arm Balancing and Inversions
Join Alex Amorosi for a workshop on deconstructing and teaching arm balances and inversions. This workshop will cover the primary muscles that need strengthening and stretching for each pose, tricks to help newer practitioners, assisting inversions in the middle of the room, and how to spot and address safety concerns. We will cover as many arm balances as time allows, as well as the three main inversions: handstand, forearm stand, and headstand. This workshop is a must for teachers and teacher trainees!
Cost for Both Sessions: $55 in Advance

"What we go through to become a yoga teacher has the potential to lead to some of the best friendships, most memorable experiences, life changing perspectives & maybe a new career. Complete strangers connect through yoga & learning to teach - each other & in the world after. There are 'aha' moments & breakthroughs, major life transitions & realizations. Teacher training brings about a new ways of thinking, how I see myself & how I see all that I share my life with. Teacher training asks everything of you. It is not for the faint of heart, although I have seen incredible transformations in this amazing group of people through this year.
If you even have the slightest interest in it, pursue it. How else can you fully comprehend the magnitude of how much your life will change because of it?"
