Arm Balances: Learn to Fly
Join Taylor for a workshop where we will be exploring arm balances from the Second and Third series. We will begin with a breakdown of the structural components, including shoulder position and stability, necessary to safely approach the transitions of the Primary Series. Then, start to take flight with the Second and Third series arm balances. By understanding the mechanics, students can learn how to safely approach these challenging postures with integrity. Open to all levels but be prepared to work!
Drills for Hip Opening
Hip opening is a key element in Ashtanga Yoga, as it facilitates greater flexibility, stability, and energy flow in the body. To effectively open the hips, specific drills are employed to target the deep hip muscles and surrounding connective tissues. These drills include variations of seated and standing poses, such as Pigeon Pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana), Bound Angle Pose (Baddha Konasana), and Warrior II Pose (Virabhadrasana II). Consistent practice of these drills gradually releases tension, increases mobility, and enables practitioners to access deeper hip openings, enhancing overall comfort and freedom in the body.

About Antigua

Antigua is a small city surrounded by volcanoes in southern Guatemala. The city’s cobbled 9×9 block streets are slow paced, easy-to-navigate with cafes, farm-to-table restaurants, artisan markets, and historical sites located throughout. It’s renowned for its colorful Spanish colonial buildings, this beautiful and magical city has almost five hundred years of history, with a privileged all-year-long climate. If you visit Guatemala during February and March for our training, you can expect warm, dry days, with little to no rainfall. Temperatures average in the high 70s during this time.  

About Shakti-Shala

Our studio is rooted in the Ashtanga lineage, which is reflected in our Mysore program, Ashtanga, Rocket & vinyasa classes, but we also offer gentle classes such as mellow and candlelit vinyasa.  Join our community, come discover this beautiful town, and practice with us.
