Shiva Power Master class:
Setting intentions and practicing gratitude, students move through a challenging and balanced flow with an emphasis on concentration and surrendering into the fire, in order to achieve a state of balance, letting go of the attachment to the ego, quieting the mind, and working towards Self-realization. This class will contain advanced variations as well as modifications for beginners and will conclude with an extended final rest and a seated meditation practice.

This workshop will explore the key actions in the shoulder girdle that allow us to stand upside down on our hands. Students will learn how to activate the shoulder stabilizers in conjunction with the core muscles in order to find balance. Tips, tricks, and exercises to help develop the core muscles and the shoulder stabilizer muscles will be taught. Students will learn how to balance in the middle of the room and stop using the wall. There will be ample time to practice the full handstand. There will also be advanced transitions for intermediate and advanced students and variations suitable for beginners. Some challenging and fun partner yoga exercises will help each student learn to trust, encouraging confidence and building courage.
