Since the age of one or maybe two you have spent most of your time upright or horizontal, rarely do we spend our days inverted, UPSIDE DOWN.  Yet there are many listed health benefits of bringing your head lower than your heart these include the cardiovascular, lymphatic, endocrine and nervous systems to name a few.  Not only are there health benefits but it can also be a lot of fun to disorientate your perspective of the world and seeing it from the ground up.

We will focus on all manor of inversions from the simple; the forward bend, downward facing dog to the more complex forearm balances, headstand and handstands.

We will build it up progressively working on upper body strength, core conditioning and wrist awareness. Be prepared to work in pairs or in small groups.

Its time challenge yourself and bring back that youthful fearlessness and what better way to do this than being inverted?
