There is no better way to study your mind than in the face of a challenging situation.
Inversions provide us with an opportunity to study ourselves— inside and out— and break old habits of being that may be keeping us stuck.
When we face our fears, we have the potential to grow, transform and redefine ourselves.
This intelligent and playful workshop on the art of turning your world upside down will help you develop a steady foundation of strength and stamina for inversions.
We will explore preparatory sequences as well as modifications on how to safely and mindfully approach inversions so that they are fun and freeing instead of fearful. Learn and refine traditional inversions (and some fun variations!) of Headstand (Sirsasana), Shoulderstand (Salamba Sarvangasana), Handstand (Adho Mukha Vrksasana), and Forearm Stand (Pinchamayurasana).
All levels may attend even if you have never done a handstand before!
