Full Description

HEADSTAND WORKSHOP: An Introduction to Inversions with Shimmy Levy-Riley

Shimmy’s fun & relaxed Introduction to Inversions workshop is designed for students new to inversions and for those looking to broaden their experience and discover the joys being upside down.

In this workshop you will explore the mechanics of a headstand & maybe a forearm balance or two. We will integrate, discuss, practice and apply alignment principles to deepen your understanding and ability to perform this beautiful and key yoga posture. Learn to stabilise your base, strengthen and engage the shoulder girdle, access your core to gain greater confidence, thus freeing yourself from the fear of being upside down and balancing on your head!

Inverted poses also have deep healing properties and strengthen our mind-body connection. Facing our fears on the mat can offer us the gift of empowerment and clarity. 
Those who are still mastering these challenging postures should not be afraid to give this workshop a try - we guarantee a fun filled, with abundant information on the mechanisms needed to achieve these poses safely.
