Yatzin Kosom Contortion Flexibility Teacher Workshop Cologne

Back Flexibility

* 2 hour workshop *

 

Yatzín will provide you with the correct technique to work on your back flexibility in a safe and effective way. The class will cover backbends, bridges, basic equilibrist techniques (e.g. elbow stand, handstand) and more.

 

In this workshop you will learn stretching exercises to keep your body healthy and in a good balance. It will give you the basis for a continuous flexibility training that can prevent injuries and enhance your artistic and acrobatic skills, either for contortion as an art form by itself or as a complement to dance, pole and aerial arts.

 

The spine and shoulders are delicate and very important in the any form of acrobatics as well as everyday life. That is why the way we work on the flexibility in those areas is also especially delicate and important.

 

Yatzín's technique is targeted towards the needs of the adult body and combines different proven flexibility methods from the circus world and gymnastics with elements from Yoga to help the body to relax into the new positions instead of forcing it.

 

 

 

With time, practice and patience, you will increase your flexibility to get into all those beautiful moves that require special upper body flexibility, such as "Cocoon", the "Eagle" and the extraordinary "Rainbow Marchenko".  

 

No matter if you can not even make a bridge or you are already a human pretzel, this class helps you reach your next level.

 

--> There are no special requirements for this workshop, all levels are welcome here. Beginners and advanced students will take the same class and work on the moves with a different intensity.
