Inversions for Beginners!
Frank Wildermann 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm $35 / $30 Member Price View More
So you’re in class and the instructor says it’s time for an inversion. How do you respond?
A) Heart palpitations and sweaty palms.
B) Duck and cover and run to the bathroom.
C) Take child’s pose and keep your head down until it’s over.
D) All of the above
If inversions make you nervous this is the workshop for you! Together we will warm up the body and prepare ourselves in the right way to go upside down. We will examine, deconstruct, and explore the proper preparations and alignment for shoulderstands and handstands. We will use props, partners, and the wall to safely find ways to get more comfortable turning ourselves upside down. The hope is by the time you are finished with this workshop, inverting the heart above the head will fill you with joy instead of dread.
