READY, SET, CROW! with Alex Garza

Ready to take your practice to new heights? Get ready for take-off…

Join us for a high-flying adventure in arm balancing! Always thought taking flight by floating your feet off the ground was impossible? Think again! Take your crow to new heights!

Along the way, we will play with foundation, balance, and accessing the deepest muscles of your core – to help your heart be light & your feet take flight!

Learn: crow, side crow, flying pigeon, grasshopper, eka pada koundinyasana, eight angle pose, firefly, and more.

This workshop will strengthen your core, challenge your balance, and playfully take you to your edge!

Think standing on your hands is impossible? Well, if you are successful at standing on your feet, know that it IS possible! Bring an open mind, an open heart, and a willingness to take yourself less seriously. Be prepared to work hard and have fun!
