GOING UPSIDE DOWN
The inverted postures of yoga are some of the most beneficial yet intimidating of the asanas. Inversions should be a key component of your yoga practice. They stimulate the endocrinal system, boost the memory, sharpen, calm and focus the mind.
It is common scientific knowledge that blood transports oxygen and fuel to the brain - but research has shown that practicing inversions improves blood circulation, influences nerve function, and helps to regulate information passing through the brain.
You will be introduced to practice postures such as headstand, shoulderstand, forearm stand, handstand, and more. You will be guided through alignment, technique, proper modifications, and be given tools to strengthen the wrists and open the shoulders. You will also learn how to tap into the power of your core strength using the Bhanda’s (muscle contraction or energy locks).
We will close this workshop with a few yummy restorative and yin poses.
