If you feel intimidated to try these asanas in a regular class, this workshop is for you! We will break down a number of arm balances and inversions and discuss ways to modify and incorporate them into your regular yoga practice. Learn how to sequence in some of these challenging postures in a safe way that makes sense within the flow of a vinyasa class. The workshop will begin with a grounding exercise to get focused and centered. We will flow through an extended vinyasa yoga sequence stopping at various intervals to break down each arm balance and inversion. We will go over some of the often over-looked muscles in the core that play a crucial role in achieving lift-off. Enjoy a long and well-deserved savasana at the end.
Come ready to experiment and have a great time. The sky is the limit!
- The classes will take place for 2.5 hours on Friday, October 27th.
- The workshop will take place at Wonder Yoga in Arlington, MA.
Meet Allison Jones
Allison Jones found yoga in 2004 during her senior year at Wellesley College. Just when her new adult life was supposed to take off she hit rock bottom with alcoholism and bulimia. She became involved with a 12 step program and discovered yoga and insight (Vipassana) meditation. Yoga helped her to deal with anxiety, feel strong and flexible in body & mind, become comfortable in her own skin and gain confidence. Several years into her own healing journey, she realized that she wanted to help others experience the benefits of yoga and meditation. Allison believes that her true vocation is to be a source of inspiration for people. Today her laughter is infectious and her personality lights up the room. She strives to make her classes challenging yet accessible to students of all levels. She likes creative and smart sequencing and is always learning more to create an awesome yoga class experience for her students.
Allison’s yoga training includes:
- 200 Hour Yoga Alliance certification through Open Doors Power Yoga January 2009
- 85 Hour Prenatal Yoga Alliance certification through Barrett Reinhorn March 2013
- Certified yogastrologer ® with Yogastrology® September 2014
- Core Strength Vinyasa Virtual Training Module with Sadie Nardini October 2015
