Edward Clark: Tripsichore Weekend Workshops

June 23, 2012 - June 24, 2012

Module 1: Hand Balances and Other Inversions
Module 2: Back Bends and Kick Overs

There are two aspects to inversions and back bends – the thrill of the spectacularly acrobatic and the peace of nearly effortless balancing. Both require skill and physical intelligence. They also require a degree of courage and a willingness to experiment. There are many methods used to attain inverted postures as well as back bends and a fantastic number of variations are possible. We will look at a number of these in this workshop. We will, however, be confining our explorations to what we see as having a distinctly yogic approach. The postures will be attempted using the yogic methods concerning breathing and focus. This means that they are – comparatively – safe to attempt. A deeper practice isn’t just about achieving harder postures. Rather, it is also about the grace with which you perform them.
