Acrobatrix Flexibility Workshop
August 15th & September 24th from 7:30-9:30pm
$55 per workshop
This workshop is for people who are passionate about improving their knowledge and body from within a flexibility practice. Leah will be teaching active and passive exercises with a focus on shoulders, hips, bridges, and splits. Through humor, practicality, and efficiency, Leah will take students through a variety of clever stretches, using techniques ranging from Russian, Mongolian, Chinese and Canadian styles of Contortion. Want to understand how to open your shoulders in a bridge? Centimeters away from a full split but you just can't figure out why? Breakthroughs will happen in Leah’s workshops. They always do.
LEVEL: All levels- The cool thing about this workshop is that a high level contortionist and a beginner level yogi will equally enjoy it. I have taught this workshop with those students in attendance (and everyone along that spectrum) and they have all had a great time.
Comfort moving and stretching with ease. Experience in a movement art (Dance, Aerials, Circus, Acro,Yoga) is recommended. We will be working on splits and backbends in the workshop, but it is not necessary to master either of those concepts to attend. If you are injured/pregnant but would like to observe to take notes, email the studio and we can figure something out.
