Pincha workshop


A closer look at Pincha Mayurasana ~ Sat workshop with Kasia

This Saturday 17th Feb 2-4pm in Catford, Kasia will breakdown this beautiful, but not easy forearm balance.  

A two hour workshop covering how to prepare and strengthen the body for PINCHA MAYURASANA aka Feathered Peacock or Forearm Balance Pose, how to safely enter, exit and transition in and out of the asana. We will cover biomechanics of the pose – which parts of your body need flexibility and which ones require strength.

The forearm stand is a great intermediate step between a headstand and a freestanding handstand. Pincha Mayurasana is great for strengthening your arms and shoulders while also stretching your neck, chest, abdomen and back. It’s a fun, but challenging pose and this worksop will give you some useful tips and exercises to work on.

Workshops are a great way to take your practice further and play with some more challenging poses, also suitable for those attending for the first time. Trust in your body, you’re capable of more than you think.

The workshop will include:

How to warm and prep the body? Covering drills and the use of props

✨ How to come up? Covering different entries

✨ How to hold the position, what to look out for

✨ How to overcome the fear of falling

Progressions after the standard Pincha

Who is this Workshop for?

For all students who want to explore and take their practice that little bit further.
