Full Description

Up is not always up, down is not always down. When we reverse our visual field and our base of physical support by doing an inversion, we dance with energy without attaching to labels or preconceived notions.
In this workshop Stew will take you on a journey to the upside down world with a fresh perspective. When one can remain upside down with calm abiding, it is the beginning of the ability to stay centred when our world turns topsy-turvy. To prepare you for that Stew will take you to poses like headstand and shoulder stand.
Headstand and shoulder stand are considered the king and queen of all yoga asanas because they offer so many powerful physical benefits. Sirsasana, headstand, stimulates the pineal and pituitary glands in the brain, the master glands of the endocrine system that controls chemical balance throughout the entire body. Salamba Sarvangasana, shoulder stand, stimulates the thyroid and parathyroid glands, which regulate metabolism.
Also, both asanas stimulate your crown chakra, which is our connection to the universe. It controls how we think, and how we respond to the world around us. It is the source of our beliefs and it’s the source of our spirituality. When this chakra is developed, it brings us knowledge, wisdom, understanding, spiritual connection, and bliss.
Apart from inversions Stewart will incorporate plenty of other asanas in this 3 hour workshop with an ongoing dialogue! His teachings are filled with loads of laughter and years of insight into the practice!Not suitable for beginners.
