Come and enjoy an ALL LEVELS exploration of inverting and arm balancing. These poses are unique in the way they allow us to physically embody, play with and reshape forces in our lives that tend to drag us down. You will learn how to not only get into and approach arm balances and inversions from a variety of angles and for every level of practitioner, but also how these poses relate to navigating the energy patterns in your life in a more uplifting and fascinating way.
