Two- Part Workshop Series, taught by Nichol Chase, to be held on January 21, 2018
From Nymph to Dragonfly
Class #1, from 12N-2:00pm
Dragonflies are ancient insects. Their fossil record goes back millions of years, and the poses named after this amazing insect seem to contain that ancient wisdom. Dragonflies are Aquatic insects, which means they spend a portion of their life in the water as nymphs. In this stage of development, the nymph’s body already resembles that of the adult dragonfly.
Likewise, there are many arm balancing poses that contain elements of and resemble Dragonfly poses. We will use these poses to experience the metamorphosis from nymph to dragonfly and take flight. Don’t be surprised if you leave feeling brilliantly iridescent.
The Nectar of Inversions
Class #2, from 2:30-3:30pm
Inversions are poses that tend to get avoided. Maybe it’s because they can be scary. Maybe it is because they are difficult to teach…..or maybe it is a combination of both. But, this is nothing short of a travesty! When you practice inversions regularly they produce such a sweet nectar — a nectar that cannot be produced by any other category of poses. There is something so powerful and potent about turning yourself upside down and the effect it has on your body and mind. In this workshop we will work on headstand, forearm stand, and hand stand. These poses are hard to figure out and risky if you aren’t doing them with skill. This is why I will guide you through them step-by-step to build you up for success and enjoyment of these poses.
My hope is to give you the tools to be confident and safe in your inversion practice so you can begin to taste the sweet nectar they produce!
