Balance is a graceful combination of strength, flexibility, and engagement. This two-part series builds each of these elements to advance your physical practice with balance-focused poses and sequences, internal engagement techniques, and creative drills that cultivate a strong mind-body connection.
Each plan is completely independent of the other, but use isolation, engagement, repetitions, and stability-focused poses and sequences to build balance from the ground up.
Standing Postures is designed to build your balance by establishing a solid foundation in the basics. You will find your drishti (gaze or focus point), learn balance progressions, and explore pose-to-pose transitions.
In Ground Work, Ashley returns to her BodyStrong roots with yoga-inspired and workout-influenced classes designed to challenge you from the inside out. Classes are the perfect blend of physical skill and internal control. You will learn about root locks and bhandas, seated postures and core-strengthening sequences, and full-body repetitions that isolate and strengthen smaller muscle groups.
The 50-minute flow classes in both series introduce balance in a flow-like format, allowing you to express your newfound balance in related poses, sequences, and tricky transitions.
Balance is not something we find; it is something we cultivate.
Building balance requires strength, stability, flexibility, and engagement. This series helps to develop these elements so you can express them physically in postures and movement while practicing patience and awareness to instill balance mentally in your daily life.
Each of the six classes in this series are designed to help you build balance in a different way. The two 15-20 minute classes build a solid foundation of balance by establishing your drishti (gaze or focus point), breaking down balance postures and their progressions, and playing with pose-to-pose transitions. The two 30-minute classes dive deep into the strength and flexibility components of balance. The Strength class focuses on isolation, engagement, and repetitions, while Flexibility explores deep stretches and long holds. The two 45-minute classes introduce balance postures in a flow-like format, allowing you to cultivate balance between poses and transitions.
This series has no inversions or arm balances, making it ideal for yogis looking to explore balance without having to go upside down.
