Yet, there are many listed health benefits to inversions these include the: –

  • cardiovascular,

  • 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.

Students will learn: –

  • the alignment techniques and strength elements that provide tools for the understanding and embodiment of inversions; and
  • support their partner as spotter and coach.

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.

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

Some yoga or body practice would be an advantage.  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.
