What are the Solar Sessions?
This is a sequence that combines yoga poses and stretches with callisthenic conditioning. It’s combined with a healthy smattering of inversions to bring you a strong dynamic practice that addresses both strength and flexibility.
It is a strong sequence that has a fair amount of conditioning exercises in it. You can opt for variations that make the practice easier if you are building up strength and/or recovering from an injury. I would encourage everyone to work progressively and do what you can, and with repetition and time, it will get easier.
The Solar Sessions has its lineages in AcroYoga and has drawn influence from gymnastics training and callisthenics with the intention of building confidence and strength to do inversions, be it headstands, forearm-stand and or handstands, none of which are a requirement nor a prerequisite, more the potential.
During the sessions, I will be presenting fact-finding rabbit whole themes in class. Past subjects covered include:-
- Peacock Mantis Shrimp
- Methane Hydrates
- Portuguese man o’ war
In-studio what to bring
- Yoga mat
- Hand sanitiser
- Props that will support your practice blocks and straps
- Mask to enter in and out of the premises

Please be aware that I will be limited in my ability to give accurate, on-the-spot corrections; this is dependent on what I can see with the webcam set-up and video screening. I will, however, endeavour to give as many common corrections during the class.
There is no certainty as to how the Covid pandemic will evolve in the coming months.
