All Levels Arm Balance with Regan Pasko in West Seattle
Mar 7, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 1:45 pm| $40
This workshop will explore the foundation of arm balancing, the physics of transferring your weight to your hands and the playful mindset needed to maintain the balance and lose the fear. We will learn how to enter multiple poses safely with an emphasis on experimentation rather than perfectionism.
We’ll warm and prepare the body using deep stretching and sun salutations. For our wrist health a variety of stretches will be employed for you to use at your disposal throughout your life on your mat.
You can expect the following to be covered:
*Side Crow (Parsva Bakasana)
*Scissors (Eka pada koundinyasana II)
*Twisted Scissors (Eka pada koundinyasana I)
*Galavasana (from 1 legged chair)
For more advanced students we may cover Tittibhasana (firefly), Elephant trunk & Astavakrasana (from a seat). Come with any questions and leave with a refreshed spirit and richer understanding of these amazing postures.
This workshop is for students new to arm balances or with a solid understanding of crow who are looking to grow. This workshop is included in the 300 hour module “Teaching Arm Balances”. No need to purchase this workshop if you are purchasing the Teacher Training Module.

About the instructor: Regan Pasko
Regan began his yoga practice in 2002 at the urging of his physicians to increase his flexibility while training for ultramarathons. Through the years his passions turned from running to yoga, where he discovered a life-changing, joyful, dedicated and rewarding practice that he simply needed to share with others.
Regan’s teaching style simply cannot be labeled. He takes what he learns from all his teachers and brings it to his students in a simplistic, almost mechanical way. He builds his students up through each individual class, as well as through their entire lifelong practice, to reach beyond their expectations, allowing them to find themselves somewhere new and amazing.
Through his training and engineering background, Regan’s teaching results in a very hands-on approach breaking down the asana, flow and physical adjustments to their most basic foundation. Regan is strongly influenced by Jonathan Bowra (of Forrest Yoga) both through being a student of his and through his ongoing specialized training. He completed a teacher training with Baron Baptiste and teaching assistance programs with local master teacher Lisa Black. He continues his training and practice by attending intensive sessions with master teachers such as Anna Forrest, Simon Park, Jason Crandell and Ed Clark.
Through the growth in his practice, Regan found that accomplishments on the mat do lead to exciting and new things in life, giving oneself new found confidence and personal respect. Therefore he teaches with a belief that anyone can achieve, urging everyone to try something new, just one small step at a time.
