A SERIES OF FOUR WORKSHOPS WITH BIEN HERNADEZ-VER
Hey Beginner and Refining Yogis! Are you wondering if you're "doing it right"? Do some basic poses still feel "funny" or "weird"? Are there unasked questions that seem to slip away in your savasana? Bien Hernandez-Ver is doing a series of workshops that can answer all these questions and more! Each workshop centers on a different body area, from legs to hips, then up to your spine and shoulders. You'll get lots of practice, adjustments if you'd like them, and confidence to bring back to your classes and daily practice.
Legs: Starting from the Bottom to be Here (March 13)
In this workshop, you'll tap into the foundation of your body: Your feet and legs! We'll check in with how solid you feel through Warrior 2, Triangle, Wide-legged Fold. You'll learn to open up your muscles with Staff/Folded Staff, Bridge and Wheel poses.
Hips: Finding the Feeling and Flexibility (March 14)
In this workshop, you'll become conscious of your pelvic placement in Crescent, Warrior 1. You'll work and play with balance in Mountain, Warrior 3, and Tree. Then, you'll wiggle through in Pigeon, Frog, and Happy Baby.
Spine and Upper Body: Finding Youth in Your Yoga (March 20)
You'll discover your spinal flexibility and what it does for you in Chaturanga, Up-dog, and Down-dog. Find how to twist in a Revolved lunge, Revolved Triangle, Twisted Chair. Then you'll chill out in Seated Twist, Cowface, and Reclined Twist (with a GREAT modification).
Arm Balances and Inversions (March 21)
It's a balance pose! Not a strength pose! Once you've got a bit of practice under your belt, or if you're ready to bite the big balance bullet, we're breaking down Crow and Side Crow. You'll transition to inversions of Fallen Angel and Headstand. Then we'll work on controlled jumps and Handstand Preps to get you a good foundation and ready for your future handstand practice.
Preregistration is required, as is wearing a mask over your nose and mouth throughout the class. We have taped off socially distant spacing on the floor. You’ll stay over six feet away from others throughout your visit. Please bring your own mat and a water bottle. Wear clothing you'd wear to the gym.
