Rs 1,000 for Day 1 and Rs 1,600 for Day 1 & 2

The Aerial Hoop is a dynamic apparatus, a circular steel ring that provides the perfect frame for your acrobatic moves. It is a great platform for fluid movements, transitions and seamless sequences, especially when spinning!

As with any aerial skill, the Aerial Hoop requires a skilful balance of strength, stamina and flexibility, something which you will progressively work on during the class. Aerial Hoop helps in honing upper body muscle groups, improving your range of motion and active flexibility.

Notes on Dhauj and climbing outdoors

I wanted to share some thoughts about this past Sunday at Dhauj, things to think about for next time. If you intend to come with, read carefully, and let’s please start applying these.

GEAR

We had folks turn up without helmets; helmets were needed, even on the little scrambles we had up to our two ledges. The area is exposed to rock fall, and since Dhauj isn’t maintained in any way, there is a serious risk of rock fall.

Kundalini Yoga with Amrit

ABOUT KUNDALINI YOGA

Just as all rivers end up in the ocean, all yoga ends up raising the kundalini.

– Yogi Bhajan

Kundalini Yoga uses Asana (posture), Mudra (hand positions), Pranayam (breath), and Mantra (utterance) to strengthen the nervous system, balance the glands, and stimulate the energy reserves of the human system.

This workshop in Kundalini yoga includes kriyas which are a set of exercises/asanas, mantras and breath. It begins to break the patterns or blocks in our bodies where the energy is stagnant leading us to forming a pattern. When the energy flows in a systematic way these patterns change.

Aerial Hoop with Lara

“When you open up space in your body, you open up space in your mind”

ABOUT AERIAL HOOP

The Aerial Hoop is an extremely dynamic apparatus, being a circular steel ring that provides the perfect frame for your acrobatic moves. It serves as a great platform for fluid movements, transitions and seamless sequences, especially when spinning!

As with any aerial skill, the Aerial Hoop requires a skilful balance of strength, stamina and flexibility, something which you will progressively work on during the class. Aerial Hoop helps in honing upper body muscle groups, improving your range of motion and active flexibility.

The class will have a ratio of two people per hoop, providing sufficient time for you to get as much individualised instruction as possible.

ABOUT LARA

Lara started lessons and training in Odissi when she was seven, and then spent many years moving through tap dance, lyrical jazz and contemporary. She went on to pursue a diploma in movement arts to understand movement, learning Tai Chi, martial arts and ballet. Lara was blessed with the opportunity to be a part of the Natya Nectar Performing Arts Company, with performances utilising stimulating visual mapping to enhancing blends of classical dance forms, acroyoga, martial arts and aerial. Her recent stretch as a student was at a summer camp for Aerial Arts Circus School in Brooklyn.

The last year-and-a-half she’s been in and around Bombay, sharing and teaching her understanding of yoga, anti-gravity yoga and aerial skills.
