BALANCEHANDS & FEET
ONLINE YOGA CLASSES FOCUSED ON CULTIVATING BALANCE
BALANCE: HANDS & FEET
LIVESTREAM YOGA CLASSES: IMPROVE YOUR BALANCE ON YOUR FEET AND HANDS
Balance is a combination of proprioception, reactivity in the nervous system, and strength of the muscular system. Proprioception is the nervous system’s ability to know where our body is in space. This can be increased dramatically with intentional exercises. As we increase proprioception, we will also develop reactive muscular patterns by training the stabilizers of our limbs to automatically engage to prevent involuntary weight shifting. In contrast, we will also train our body to deliberately shift weight forward, back or side to side, both on hands and feet. Lastly, we will work on increasing strength of the muscles involved in balance, including the muscles that surround the ankles, hips (knees as well), wrists and shoulders.

ONLINE CLASSES FOCUSED ON INCREASING YOUR BALANCE ON HANDS AND FEET
The Balance Immersion focuses on providing you with the necessary techniques and exercises to increase your overall balance and proprioception (ability to feel where your body is in space and in relationship to itself).
- Tree Pose, Standing Hand-to-Foot Variations, Half Moon, Side Plank
- Handstand, Headstand, Warrior III
- Exercises and techniques to strengthen the stabilizer muscles of the ankles, hips, hands and shoulders.
Through this yoga immersion, focused on increasing balance, you will find a new relationship with your body and ultimately feel better on a daily basis. To increase balance, we will do postures that help us develop proprioception, which is your nervous system’s way of knowing where your body is in space and in relationship to itself. It has been shown that inversions like handstand in particular can increase proprioception dramatically — but it must be done with the intent to feel and sense where our body is. Handstand will be a large part of this immersion, but not for the purpose of attaining the posture (though that may be the result), but rather to increase our proprioceptive ability. Balance is a combination of proprioception, reactivity in the nervous system, and strength of the muscular system. Developing these three is the goal and path of this immersion.

WHAT STUDENTS SAY ABOUT ONLINE YOGA CLASSES WITH MATT
Matt‘s classes are phenomenal- if you ever have the ability to practice with him, make use of it!! He has a very unique talent of combining anatomy, yoga philosophy and his own perspective into a super intense package of knowledge which is fun AND easy to understand. I enjoyed the April immersion a lot as it was a great way of deepening my own practice and broadening my horizon, especially as the lifetime access allows you to take classes
as often as you want- trust me, you will want to take them again! I cant wait for next month’s classes and highly recommend everyone to take the May pass and joining in on the journey.
Covid_19 bought Matt into my home and my yoga practice. This last month I have learn’t so much it has deepened my practice and my understanding of the anatomy & biomechanics and how we use both in every asana we practice. He has also helped in my teaching, ie asking my students to think about the foot as a tripod “big toe, pinkie toe, heel ” I never imagined I would learn so much from the immersion.

I never payed much attention to how i engaged my feet and hands before within my yoga practice before this immersion. This immersion goes into details on how to use the muscles in your hands and feet along with shoulders and glutes in order to deal with the shifting of your weight and using your muscles so we can stop ourselves moving in order to create balance. Expect to awaken all your feet and hand muscles in this immersion and learn how to engage the whole of the body in a way only Matt can explain in order to balance. It has made me so much more aware of how I balance on my feet now in everyday life and habits.

I love this immersion. I was struggling with balance before. My ankles were wobbling and i felt not stable. In this immersion Matt trained my muscles and my brain to connect and find balance and of course strength in the right places. It is joyfull and creative. And i always learn new things about my body and anatomy. It’s not just about balance. It’s like a journey with a brilliant map.

By far, one of the best immersions. The classes focus on balance on hands and feet. The attention to the placement of toes and feet were a game changer for me. We even balanced and moved through poses with our eyes closed. Highly recommend.
