Upside Down - Inversions For All
Sunday 10/13 11-1pm
In this fun two-hour inversion workshop you'll get to work on your confidence and skills in a variety of postures. Any time we practice postures where the heart is placed higher than the head, we are in an inversion. These satisfying, but sometimes tricky postures add a new perspective, stimulate the lymphatic and digestive systems, are good for the heart, have a calming effect and strengthen the core, among many other benefits.
Advanced Yoga teacher TIm Groen (RYT 500) breaks down the exhilarating practice of inversions of all shapes; we'll practice more basic upside-downs, such as wide legged forward fold, as well as arm balances (crow), and from there we’ll move on to more complex poses; the set-up for handstand, and the tripod headstand with leg variations, and more.
Using the wall and some partner work, you'll build confidence and walk away with tools for strength building and safe alignment.
Yoga Level: ‘Upside Down' is for experienced beginners and up.
Yoga Alliance (YA): 2 contact hours.
