Meet the Balance Bar A workshop for yoga teachers and students
It’s not your average broomstick! The Balance Bar is a durable, flexible, lightweight staff with traction tips for safety and foam padding for comfort.
This revolutionary new prop helps you and your students gain confidence in class by:
- Assisting with balance in standing poses (without going to the wall or dragging a clunky chair around)
- Finding alignment in complicated poses like Triangle, Half Moon and Warrior 3 (especially when the block is too small and too far to reach)
- Preventing injuries by warming up your joints with circular, spiral movements borrowed from Qi Gong and Tai Chi
- Releasing stress with self-massage and fascia release in the places where foam rollers and balls can’t get to (without so much pain!)
In this workshop, you will get a chance to try out numerous poses with the Balance Bar and apply its miraculous support to your own style and yoga system, making your class and practice more accessible.
Teachers are encouraged to come as well as students of any level, especially those who struggle with traditional classes and want to find true stability and ease in their yoga and in their bodies. $35 / $31.50 for YNW members
