Workshop Series: The Art of Balance with Mark Das


As we leap fearlessly into the new year, the tribe here at Vikasa is thrilled to be hosting a special series of workshops with guest Instructor Mark Das. This challenging and fun series of four 3-hour workshops is specifically designed to deepen your understanding of arm balances and handstands. Often, these postures are mistaken as being accessible to advanced practitioners only, but we all have to start somewhere!

Open to all levels, this series invites everyone from the beginner yogi to the seasoned practitioner to explore movement within the yoga practice from a new perspective. Besides balancing on your hands, you will learn about human anatomy and biomechanics and delve deeper into the why behind certain techniques and methods of practice.
