Friday Evening

Headstand: Change Your Perspective

Learn to build solid foundation in your upper body and effortlessly turn your world upside down. Headstand, known in Sanskrit as Sirsasana, is considered one of the most powerful postures in the yoga tradition. Holding headstand for long periods of time balances the nervous system and in this class you will experience a full five minute balance on your head in the traditional position--when you come down your perspective on more than just headstand will be changed. You will explore how to safely enter and exit headstand from fun and challenging positions. Once the foundation is established you will experiment with the seven headstands of the Intermediate Series of Ashtanga Yoga and entering arm balances from headstand, all the while remembering to smile.

The inspired beginner will find easy, fun and approachable techniques to some of Ashtanga yoga’s most challenging postures, while the avid practitioner and seasoned veteran will find new techniques to inspire their practice to new levels of precision.
