Handstand & Bakasana Challenge

16/06/2017 at 19:00-21:30

Date: Friday June 16 
Time: 19.00-21.30h
With: Dick Langenberg & Sanne Kerkhof
all levels

Ready for take off… Let’s fly! Grab this challenge with both hands to master the handstand and bakasanas.

Bakasanas are part of the so called ‘arm balances’. Within yoga we practice sitting asanas, standing poses, bending poses and arm balances. Arm balances are challenging but very rewarding: it gives you a stronger basis, brings pleasure and mental power.

What will we do?

  • We start with kriyas, vayu’s, ‘just sitting’ and pranayama.
  • When our body and mind are more “at ease”, we start with the asanas practice.
  • We build up gradually: you get a feel of the basic techniques needed for handstand and bakasanas.
  • We work on synchronizing the breath and excercies in a dynamic series of asanas.

What will the handstand & bakasanas challenge bring you?

  1. You fly!
    With the bakasanas you make your body small and compact like a bird, only then you will be able to fly in a arm balance. You learn to find your balance using your breath and by letting body and mind work together you feel total freedom!
  2. You become stronger
    To do the bakasanas you need strength. And you might be stronger then you think…
  3. You become more flexible
    Birds don’t have angular bones. You too can fold your skeleton to become compact like a bird. You’ll feel flexible and pliable.
  4. You take a brake from daily life
    Normally you sit, stand or lie down. When do you see the world upside down? Leave your comfort zone, emerge in these playful poses, and get refreshed mentally.
