Inversions & Arm Balances


YOGA VIDA

 

Inversions are empowering and they not only teach us about our inner strength, but about our innate joyfulness and courage. In this weekend training, we will dissect all inversions and their proper alignment to set ourselves up for success! This weekend will provide foundational in-depth instruction and guidance to a wide array of inversions (headstand, forearm stand, handstand, shoulder stand and variations of them) in a way that will dissolve fear and create a hopeful and playful space for students of ALL LEVELS! Learn how to access these empowering poses and incorporate them into your regular yoga practice with ease. This training is open to yoga teachers and students alike. We will be dissecting the anatomy, alignment, energetics, therapeutic benefits, modifications and applications of all the inversions in a yoga practice, as well as proper assists to keep students safe. It’s time to fly!

*This course is also open to students with a steady practice who wish to learn more about Inversions & Arm Balances.

JUAN GAMBOA

Over the years, he has studied with Schuyler Grant, Shiva Rea, Raghunath and Dharma Mittra among many others.   He holds a 200 hour yoga alliance certificate from Sonic Yoga Center of Learning, a 75 hour Kula Yoga certificate and a 75 hour Restorative teacher training from Pure Yoga.

His classes are vinyasa-based - vigorous, thoughtful but accessible to all students. Students are encouraged to explore movement as a meditation, and for the breath to connect with the body. 

He is humbled to have taught and led classes, workshops and retreats in Monaco, Milan, Thailand, Costa Rica, Greece, Nicaragua and The Philippines.  He is, however, most inspired when teaching here at home in New York City.  More of his travels and offerings are available on:  www.juanyogi.com
