Inversion Immersion with Nicole Roy

20Nov

In this intermediate-level progressive workshop series, we will safely explore taking our asana practice upside-down.

Beginning with strength-building preparatory work, we will delve into 3 different inversions each week; headstand, handstand and forearm stand. Focus will be stressed on safety and stability along with an invitation to play.

Through consistent practice, we will establish acute muscle memory, a greater awareness of our bodies and a deeper understanding of the postures.

  • Develop more strength in your body
  • Improve alignment for a healthier and more stable asana practice
  • Gain confidence
  • Have fun!

Curriculum

Each class we will warm up the body with sun salutations and core exercises. We will discuss and practice stable alignment in foundational poses such as downward-facing dog and plank. We will then workshop headstand, handstand and forearm stand incorporating the same healthy alignment principles. Various entries into the inversions will be explored as well as various expressions of the postures. Each class will conclude with a proper cool-down and savasana.

Suitability

This progressive is suitable for individuals who have experiences flow yoga, ages 12+.
