June | The Challenge

About this topic

Growth starts when you leave your comfort zone. And as a true partner and coach, we want to support you on your journey to personal growth and fulfillment! This is why the live classes in this month will challenge you in different aspects. Join us for sessions that focus on very demanding or complex asana that you may neglect in your everday practice or where you simply don't know how to start. Be ready to evolve and grow! And remember: If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you.

❤️ Emotional Perspective

"What if I fall? – Oh but darling, what if you fly?" Keep this quote by Erin Hanson in mind when you practice with us this month. We want to take you out of your comfort zone to make you stronger – also and especially on a mental level. Because there's nothing more empowering than mastering something that you didn't think you where capable of.

💪 Body Perspective

Get ready to sweat and swear – a lot! This month's live sessions will certainly lead you to the edges of your capabilities and beyond. But make no mistake: These are the moments where your practice evolves, where you become more skilfull, stronger, more flexible, and more you.

🎓 Teaching Perspective

Especially as a yoga teacher, we often stay in our comfort zone and only teach and practice what seems easy for us. But this also means that we forget to challenge us and our students. We deny us and them opportuinities to evolve and grow. This month's live classes will give you input how to challenge yourself and, as a follow-up, also your students.

July | Arm Balances

About this topic

Who doesn't love a good arm balance? 😉 Did you know that Young Ho Kim regularly moves into handstand because that's his way of centering himself? If he is off-balance, he knows something isn't quite right. Whether you'd like to master an arm balance to symbolize your progress or as a way to find your center – as your true partner and coach, we support you by offering you a manifold variety of sweat-breaking classes. In July, you have the chance to take advantage of live sessions with Young Ho Kim and our Senior Teachers Alexey Gaevskij, Hie Kim and Ami Norton. You'll learn how to perfect your Pincha, your Koundinyasana, and your Dragonfly Pose. And if you're an Inside Flow Lover, you'll be excited about the class with Hie Kim who will practice the popular transition of Jumping Forward with you. Each class will help you gain more strength in your arms and core, improve your balance, and eventually reach the next level. In addition to our live classes, on several occasions throughout the month of July, you can choose from several classes about arm balances with teachers like Matt Giordano, Desiree Rumbaugh and Mathieu Boldron. You'll receive powerful tools that will further enhance your practice. Be ready to increase your body intelligence by gaining the knowledge about certain asanas. Be ready to feel your arms burn like fire. And, finally, be ready to feel proud about your accomplishments! Mark your calendar for a month full of challenging arm balances!

❤️ Emotional Perspective

Arm balances are perfect to check in on yourself. How are you feeling? Where is your focus? Are you distracted by external factors or can you truly tune into your body and let it fly? Here is an idea: Connect the next arm balance you want to master with an emotional topic that is currently a challenge for you. The physical struggle can be a metaphor for the emotional struggle. By learning how to balance in that specific asana, you will, on the one hand, tend to forget your hindering emotions by focussing on your body. On the other hand, you will possibly see everything clearer emotionally, once you mastered the arm balance after all.

💪 Body Perspective

Arm balances are challenging – that's a fact. And everyone once started with them. So whether you see yourself rather as a beginner regarding arm balances or a definite pro – each practice will further shape your body and strengthen the muscles that you need to hold your whole body weight up – only on your arms. Remember that arm balances do not only concern the arms but are usually a result of all your muscles cooperating with each other.

🎓 Teaching Perspective

For teaching arm balances, it is always necessary to estimate which levels your students are. Do you have only beginners in your class? Then guide them towards an easier arm balance like Crow Pose slowly. Make it a peak pose in your class. Prepare it efficiently, so that in the end your students can safely play around with or even access the final asana. Are your students of mixed levels? Then offer options. Be aware of students in your class who might be slighly afraid of an arm balance. Show them that you're present and make them feel safe by offering small adjustments and your guidance. Do you only have advanced students? Remind them of the necessary steps towards mastering the arm balance and then let them take up the challenge on their own. Of course, always keep an eye on them and offer your help if necessary.
