Upside Down Flying Machine - Inversion Workshop with Amy Ippoliti

We often over rely on force in Inversions and arm balances rather than using architectural smarts and proper specific warm up to get into them smoothly. Learn to approach these poses with ease, grace, and power. You will learn tricks to kick up to the wall, balance without the wall, open your shoulders, boost your confidence to get air borne, and connect to your playful spirit. By exploring the science and psychology of arm-balances and inversions you will get past the mind blocks that stop you and instead equip you for any challenge life brings in the future.
