The Poses That Scare You with Angela Clark and Steph Creaturo

The Poses That Scare YouTis the season. The leaves are changing. The temperature is dropping. There are apples to be picked, pumpkins to be carved, and Halloween costumes to be worn.  It’s the perfect time of year for…scary yoga poses?

Angela and Steph seem to think so.  Join them Saturday October 29th, as they tackle the scariest yoga poses in this fun, original, and terrifying (!) workshop.  After all, in the words of Martha Beck, “You can deep breathe until you are black and blue, but you will not get rid of muscle tension until you can get rid of fear.”

Will this be scary?

Angela Clark: Depends.

Steph Creaturo: Define “scary”.

Am I going to fall and break my head?

AC: You may fall. You won’t break your head.

SC: You could break your head anyway. Someone could drop a watermelon from their apartment window onto your head and break it. Now, the chances of that happening are slim to none, just as the chances of you breaking your head at this thing are.  So, get over it.

Do I have to wear a costume?

AC: No, costumes are optional!

SC: Costumes allowed as long as all the ladies & gents are locked & loaded when we go upside down.

What poses will we be doing?

AC: Handstands, headstands, full wheel, dropbacks, arm balances, and whatever else we can cook up in our black cauldron :).

SC: And, yes, we’ve figured out how to put all of them together.

If I cry, will you tell anyone?

AC: No, we would never do that. We’re not that quick on Twitter.  But we may hand you a gold medal for being courageous enough to attempt something that scares you.  And Steph is baking cookies. That will make you feel better.

SC: You won’t cry. You’ll be too amazed at the shit you just did. Because you’re going to ROCK IT OUT in your handstand to walkover into wheel dropback to headstand into enlightenment.

Can we have candy afterwards?

AC: Only if you don’t cry – NO, just kidding!!! (don’t print). [Ed. Note: We printed it.  It’s really funny.]  Well, as they say “trick or treat!”

SC: Since we’re the only yoga studio we know of with a stash of chocolate in the desk drawer, chances are that there will be some sort of sweet treat at the end of this thing. Perhaps home-baked, but don’t worry; it still won’t be good for you.
