PATHWAY TO THE PEAK
w/ Logan Wagenseller
A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. A peak pose is one that requires the most opening and strength in a series of related poses. This four-week series will journey up pathways that lead us to peak poses, the pinnacle of the practice. Along the road, there will be twists and turns and unexpected surprises that lead us to peak arm balances, inversions, backbends, and partner poses. As we travel up this pathway, we will let go of fear and discover more strength and ability than ever imagined.
This series is geared toward building strength and body mechanics needed for peak postures. Students will have the space to ask questions, explore how to safely and effectively build up to poses, and experience these peak poses with modifications. There will be elements of conditioning in order to work up the path and build muscle memory to conquer the journey to the top. This workshop will give time and opportunity for students to explore poses they may view as challenging/ holding them back.
Together we will travel The Pathway to the Peak. Logan will lead the expedition and ensures the journey is open to all levels. Traveling this pathway will encourage students to find confidence and freedom in challenging asana practices so they feel ready and equipped for these poses when they arise in traditional vinyasa classes.
Mondays November 5 - 26
7:00pm - 8:30pm
November 5th - Destination 1 - Peak Arm Balances
Arm balances are liberating postures that help us reach our highest destination. They reveal to us our own courage, agility, and intrinsic power. During this stop, we will explore peak arm balances and how we can safely and effectively fly on our hands.
November 12th - Destination 2 - Peak Inversions
At our second destination, we will stumble upon the fountain of youth. Rediscover your inner-child as we flip upside down and explore the physical and mental benefits of peak inversions.
November 19th - Destination 3 - Peak Backbends
A backbend a day not only keeps the doctor away, but also shows us that our limits are self-imposed. Travel the path to a well-rounded back bending practice and discover your own limitless potential.
November 26th - Final Destination - Peak Partner Poses
A path well-traveled is a path traveled with a partner. At our final stop, discover your own self-awareness and trust as we share our practice and journey to the peak together.
New Year, New Inversion
Sat, Jan 26, 2019 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Each New Year brings opportunity for fresh experiences and points of view. In the midst of intention-setting and change, there is a sense of vigor and vitality in the air that invites us all to take on something new or to sharpen old skills.
Whether these growth opportunities are physical, mental or emotional, practicing inversions provides the tools needed to break beyond personal barriers and effect New Year intentions.
Going upside down brings patience, clarity, energy, and focus. Through the practice of inversions, the seemingly impossible becomes more attainable. This sense of accomplishment will take you to new heights and bring fresh confidence and motivation into your everyday activity.
This two-hour workshop will provide detailed instruction and drills to properly execute handstands and forearm stands. We will safely explore alignment and progress into balancing upside down. Whether you’re new to inversions or your inversion game is strong, there will be options for all.
Join Logan for New Year, New Inversion, where you will flip perspective, discover personal strength and bring a renewed energy of achievement into the New Year.
