with Jason Crandell


Are you an instructor looking to teach arm balances and inversions safely or a student who wants to master advanced postures? Take your practice to the next level with Jason Crandell's Ultimate Guide to Practicing & Teaching Arm Balances + Inversions. This comprehensive course is for teachers and students alike!

In this course, Jason breaks down the components of each pose and group poses together making high risk inversions and arm balances safe and accessible. He includes step-by-step approaches to every pose and outlines how one pose seamlessly flows into the next.

For teachers looking to take a deep dive into arm balances, this course addresses essential anatomy, sequencing concepts, preparatory postures, verbal cues, and manual adjustments for over 35 arm balances in a logical, easy-to-apply method. Jason's philosophy is that not all teachers are able to perform difficult postures but that shouldn't keep them from teaching inversions and arm balances safely.

By demystifying the complexity of these postures, you will take actionable steps to deepen your personal practice and your ability to teach. This course includes postures and inspiration for all levels, regardless of how advanced your practice may be.


This course is suited for dedicated yoga practitioners who want to improve their arm balance and inversion practice, as well as for teachers who want to teach these postures to their students.
