A thorough and fun introduction to Inversions to help you work towards some key poses and deepen your yoga practice. We’ll explore the fundamentals & benefits of the major inverted poses (Headstand, Shoulderstand, Handstand, Forearm Stand) and learn how to invert safely with proper alignment. Inversions can be challenging & daunting and it can sometimes seem near impossible to get there and stay there! This workshop will give you the guidance & courage to challenge yourself and you’ll leave with an understanding of the poses to implement in your yoga practice. We’ll spend time preparing the body with strengthening the core, shoulders and legs in preparation for balancing upside down, lengthening the back body, including shoulders, hips and the hamstrings, in order to ease entry and exit in poses. We’ll pinpoint the common issues that make inversions challenging, and show you effective ways to address them. This session is a great way to advance your yoga practice – Physically by strengthening the upper body & increasing balance and Mentally & Emotionally as you relieve stress, change your perspective, overcome fear & gain confidence.
Come and learn how to get upside down and reap all the wonderful benefits from getting your heart above your head!
