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.
