Going upside down challenges our perception of how we normally experience our surroundings, putting us in a place that is unfamiliar and may be uncomfortable. This type of work offers an opportunity to see our world differently, which can inspire and empower our practice.

This program will cover alignment and sequencing fundamentals to support a healthy and sustainable inversion practice. We will also learn how to guide others in more challenging and advanced asanas and gain proficiency in working with practitioners of all levels and body types.

**This course is open to students with a steady practice who wish to learn more about Inversions.

Program Includes:

  • Inversion Alignment
  • The anatomy of balance
  • Traditional Headstand (including 7 Ashtanga Yoga headstands)
  • How to Sequence towards inversions and arm balances
  • Exit Strategy – Learning how to fall intelligently
  • Props – How blocks, straps, blankets and the wall can support an inversion practice
  • Assist – Being supportive without intrusion
  • Group Teaching Lab – Students will teach each other as we observe and dissect how to better our approach (choice of words, technique and asanas)
  • Self-practice – students will be assigned several at-home practice exercises
