Inversions are an essential aspect of a balanced yoga practice. Regular practice of these postures nourishes the vital organs, strengthens the immune and nervous system, and clears the mind, creating radiant wellbeing and serenity from the inside out.
We will work on poses and actions to stabilize and strengthen the shoulder girdle and arms, increasing the mobility of the upper back while understanding how to align the head and neck in a safe, pain-free way. We’ll explore headstand, shoulderstand, forearm stand and full arm balance. This workshop is an opportunity for new students to break through their resistance to inversions and make friends with the world being upside down, and an opportunity for more seasoned students to explore more challenging variations.
