This session is good for beginners or even for people who have found the balance in handstand and want to work on their core strength and refine their line. The idea is to find a good form, develop core strength and shoulder mobility which can support posture like handstands. In partner acrobatics – acroyoga, handstand training is an essential part of the practice for everyone. However for participants these drills can be a good addition to personal practice / fitness regime as drills help in developing core strength and mobility espc in upper body. There will be partner drills involved so it’s safe and fun 🙂 The key elements taught will be: • 15 mins warm up – shoulders and wrist focus • Downward-facing dog […]
Photo credit Sigismondi Photography. Sat & Sun May 26-27 4.00 – 7.00 pm Rs 1,000 / 1,600 Ancient qigong and yoga are essentially two branches of the same tree. Though umbrella terms for a wide range of practices, both yoga and qigong are concerned with unifying the body in order to refine ones ‘qi’ or ‘prana’ to achieve higher states of being.

Saturday April 7th. 8.30 – 9.30 AM. Jahanpanah City Forest Free! YIN YANG FLOW Balancing the energies within our bodies has never been so important as it is now, where the fast pace of life often leaves us drained of energy. Starting with a gentle stretching of the body and pranayama, we will continue with a few essential yin poses, meant to open and lubricate our joints, which we often never exercise. In turn, we become more stiff and the range of motion in those joints decreases, affecting the alignment of the body and causing pains in various areas of the body. We will continue with a hatha flow in which we will hold asanas for a few breaths, working our […]
