Come explore the incredible healing properties of having the effect of gravity reversed on your body. Inversions stimulate the mind, increase energy, lift spirits, and strengthen the body in a way nothing else can. In this workshop we will explore key actions and practice the techniques to progress into inversions. After preparing the body, we will spend time on four major yoga inversions, headstand, handstand, forearm stand, and shoulder stand. There will be detailed explanation, practice, time for questions, one on one adjustments, and and understanding of what a healthy and aligned inversion is.
