What happens when women get together? Something immeasurably powerful and transformative can come from the support of other women. We set down our barriers and dwell in our commonalities, compassion, and understanding. Even though this is only a half of day, the goal is to leave you feeling like you have just been on a weeklong women’s retreat. In her 20 years of teaching women’s retreats, Saidman Yee has come to understand that a lot of times we are struggling with similar issues and thinking that we are alone. Emotional needs of a woman are different from those of a man. We will target common areas where tension, trauma, and secrets can be buried with the intension of unleashing joy. We will use asana, pranayama, meditation, journaling and dialogue to dig into areas that keep us stuck. Why and where are we stuck? What are we afraid of? Are we living our potential? Are we using our voices to speak our truth? Do we understand our importance and validity? We will experiment with practices that address issues such as forgiveness and confidence. We will explore different tools that unlock bindings in the body, breath, and brain that keep you from realizing that you are enough.

Challenge Poses: Find Your Wings and Fly into Arm Balances and Inversions!
Limited Capacity seats available

Yes, you can soar into inversions and arm balances with grace, confidence, and ease! In this uplifting half-day workshop, we’ll explore “challenge poses” like Handstand, Headstand, Forearm Balance, Hollowback, and a variety of other arm balances in a playful, safe, and supportive environment. 
 
Perfect for teachers and students alike, we’ll dive into breath, bandhas, anatomy, alignment, partner-spotting drills, and the unique architecture of arm balances and inversions. You’ll learn how to connect to the core and summon strength with targeted drills to facilitate a smooth and safe liftoff. We’ll also break down the biomechanics of floating so you can gracefully transition in and out of these challenging poses.
 
Plus, explore the common mental and physical roadblocks that prevent people from progressing on their inversion journey. By the end of the day, you’ll have the physical and emotional support you need to find your wings and fly.
