Arm Balance Masterclass this Thursday!

Elementals Earth

Arm Balance Masterclass

Thursday 26 April, 7:10pm – 9:10pm

Sunday 22 April marks this year’s Earth Day celebrations. We decided this means it’s the perfect time to build confidence going upside down. Our very own Marianna will lead a 2 hour Elementals Earth masterclass to perfect your technique in those pesky arm balances that you always wanted to know how to do correctly.

Peak Postures covered:

  • crow (Fire)
  • side crow (Fire)
  • eight angle pose (Earth)
  • tripod headstand (Earth)
  • flying pigeon (Water)
  • dolphin (Earth/Fire)

Class Structure:

We begin with a strong grounding flow practice to get the body ready for arm balances. We then will work by breaking down each arm balance. You can ask questions and get hands on corrections with your technique.

You may just find that one simple adjustment makes it suddenly possible! Months of struggle fixed in one correction.

Marianna will then ground you with a closing meditation to make it the perfect end to the evening.

Costs:

Unlimited Members – Free

Class Packs – Single Credit

SOMA Coaches Share Healthy Recipes

Feeling like you need a little inspiration in the kitchen this spring? We asked three of our hot yoga divas to share their favourite vegetarian and vegan recipes and this is what they said. From savoury to passionately sweet, we’ve got three new ones for you to try.

Marianna’s favourite vegan chocolate hazelnut spread

Marianna admits that chocolate is one of her guilty pleasures so shares this rich, vegan alternative to your typical sinful dessert. This raw vegan chocolate hazelnut spread tastes like Nutella without all of the dairy and refined sugar.

Siru’s avocado mint cream bars – just, yum!

Gluten free, vegan and healthy – well, let’s go. These creamy treats have the healthy fats of avocados and the minty freshness to fit the spring weather. For those who love mint chocolate chip, these are to die for.

Vanessa’s savoury brunch treat – Ottolenghi’s Torta Pasqualina

The famous vegetarian bistro is just around the corner from our studio and a great place to head after a workout or hot yoga class. We’ve spotted other SOMA members there on the weekend along with our other weekend warriors!

This savoury pie keeps well, so it’s a great dish to have in the fridge over the Easter weekend. If you can’t get chard, use spinach or another green. Serves six to eight.
