In this workshop the series will be introduced as well as their coordinating vinyasas, in a workshop style. This will give practitioners and teachers an opportunity to ask questions and look at key actions that develop the strength and alignment for postures, gaining a deeper awareness and understanding to the vinyasa system, and how it relates to posture within the series and other postures from other Yoga traditions.

In this workshop, we will look at the arm balances of the Intermediate series and the key actions that makes the mastery of strength, stability and alignment accessible to everyone to discover the secret to balancing on their arms.
