Get to know your handstand- CrossFit Solace, this Sunday 3/15, 2-4pm

Get To Know Your Handstand with Isaac Peña

Click Here to Register for the Get to Know Your Handstand with Isaac Peña

In this workshop, Isaac Peña will cover the tools needed to get you on the road to understanding your handstand. From wrist warm-ups and shoulder stretches to core exercises and full-body drills, he will pinpoint areas that may be weak points in your body and gain an overall deeper sense of body connectedness. It’s time to find your line. Caution, this may make you a handstand addict.


Going Up(Side Down)

Happy New Year!!!!! Anne here. Isaac’s got a bunch of workshops coming up this month and next that we’ll be posting, but for now, here’s one for next Saturday, January 10th, at Pure Yoga East. The topic? Inversions and more inversions! Sign up in advance to save your spot 🙂 One of my own new year resolution yoga poses is handstand, away from the wall and into the unknown. Practice and patience are key, and I always feel like I learn the most in these longer sessions with my friends by my side! Hope to see you on the mat. <3Anne

Fluidity is Freedom

At Pure Yoga WEST!
Register at and find me under the workshops tab.

In this workshop, we will focus on smooth and flowing transitions going with the natural rhythms of the body, as opposed to going against it. By doing this, we will seek to smooth out the rough edges and be left with a body that feels more free and open.

Tools to Deeper Flexibility with Isaac Pena

Sat, May 17, 2014 at 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

Instead of using our bodies to make shapes, we will be emphasizing using shapes to open our bodies. Starting from the most basic floor movements, we will layer stretches in a way that will lead you into deeper flexibility and contortion exercises, standing on our feet as well as our hands! This workshop will be open to all levels and covering the whole body.

$30 for members/$35 for non members
