Inversions are revitalizing for the body, and refreshing for the mind. By reversing the normal effects of gravity they rest the heart and nervous system, aid circulation, and relieve pressure from the lower back. Proper practice of inversions creates strength, confidence, calmness and clarity of mind.
This workshop is for beginner/intermediate level practitioners interested in learning inversions. We will workshop crow pose and variations, headstand, forearm balance, handstand, and shoulder stand.
We will also focus on maintaining proper awareness and deep breathing while in the postures to achieve maximum benefit, and end with meditation.
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Join Gizella as we dive into the hips and hamstrings with a series of poses designed to gently release the stiffness in the lower body.
This workshop will delve deeply into opening the hip area. Practice starts with a mindful flow to warm up the body, then moves into a series of hip openers where we will spend time breaking down and exploring the deeper postures.
