As children we love falling, in fact we fall many times on purpose, but as we get older and more conscious of our body we are scared of falling. Rightly so as we get older we lose bone mass, density. Our bones become thinner and weaker from calcium and other mineral loss. Just one fall can lead to serious consequences and statistically many of these happen in our own home.
Who is this workshop for
This course is appropriate for everyone! Balance is not a place you arrive at and then you are done. No! Balance is a point between the sway from side to side that we need to make a continuous effort to stay in. Whether you are trying to stay balanced in daily life or trying to hold an asana – perfect balance is a constant effort. The lessons we learn about balance on our mats are transferable to maintaining and working towards a life of balance. Developing the qualities that help us to maintain balance will help you to avoid big messy falls and to manage the odd stumble or two!
This workshop is about learning to break down the fundamental components of challenging standing balances. To master these postures we need to develop awareness around stability, flexibility and concentration. Mastering one legged balances gives us a type of courage and inner strength that easily translates from our mat to our efforts in the world. We learn that all the limits we experience in this life we have set for ourselves. When we conquer fear with determination, strength and grace we teach ourselves that we can do anything we set our minds too. Developing awareness of how our weight is distributed through our feet and building strength in our core stabilization muscles will help you to avoid falling and to get rid of clumsiness.
