Friday 7:00—8:00 PM Stretching: Legs & Hips
This is not a casual warm-up — this is how you pursue a flat split. In this class we’ll work on stretching the entire leg to maximize the lines in our flexibility and discuss how to use active engagements to support and balance our flexibility with strength. Dress warmly and be ready to sweat!

Saturday 9:00-10:00 Stretching: The Basics of Upper Back & Shoulders
Be prepared to lift and breathe! For many of us, the back and shoulder area is stuck in a constant state of tension. In this class we’ll work on relieving that tension by creating space in the joints so that we can open the chest and unlock our shoulder and back flexibility. Dress warmly and be ready to sweat!

Saturday 1:00–2:00 Back-Bending
Learn to find the breath and the lift in back-bending. This class focuses on discovering and unlocking the four points from which we draw our back-bending potential.

Saturday 5:00-6:00 Introduction to Contortion: Back-Bending
In this class we’ll explore the world of back-bending and learn exercises designed to help you deepen your flexibility, as well as develop the strength needed to support a healthy and sustainable practice of the art. Student should be comfortable with pushing into bridges (or a yoga full-wheel) multiple times during an hour-long class. Dress with warm layers and be ready to sweat and play!
