Floating Through Air: Learning to Jump with Ease and Grace (Elite Fitness, Saigon, Vietnam)

Jump your feet between your hands. Jump back to chaturanga. Jump through your arms to land in a seated position. Jump into handstand. Are these easy for you? Do you feel like you are flying or falling?

Students are often instructed to jump during a yoga asana practice, but these moves are seldom taught with clear, step-by-step instructions. In this workshop, you will learn preparatory exercises and helpful techniques to make your jumpings smoother and more controlled. Jumpings also offer the opportunity to explore the emotional layers that are revealed when we confront a physical challenge: fear, frustration, fulfillment . . . and perhaps fun! This workshop will put springs in your feet, inspire your heart to leap, and your spirit to jump with joy.
