Looking to shake things up and go upside down? “If you change the way you look at things, the thing you look at change” (Wayne Dyer). Whether you’ve never tried a handstand or want to perfect your already stellar inversion form, come join us for our Inversion Workshop. Teachers Caroline McCann and Emily Eley guarantee you’ll surprise yourself as you play around with handstand and other inversions. Inversions have many health benefits including improved circulation and lymphatic function (for detoxification), relief of back pain by reversing gravity’s pull on the spine, core strength and overall improved energy. Turning upside down can be a great way to shift your mood, energy and spirits. This two hour workshop will include drills, play time, partner work, and exercises using the wall as well as away from the wall. We’ll teach you how to safely transition out of inversions and work on alignment to strengthen your technique. Join us!
Restorative yoga for physical and emotional healing
When we are emotionally stressed or holding on to hurt or trauma, the pain often manifests in our bodies. This results in tension, muscle knots, and physical ailments. Restorative yoga poses use props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets to support the body and encourage us to “let go” and completely relax into a pose. When there is no muscle contraction and the body is fully supported, energy begins to flow freely. Once the body is settled into complete relaxation, the mind becomes accessible to do the same. During this workshop, students will be gently guided into deep restorative poses, followed by guided meditation and mindfulness exercises. The emphasis on the mind-body connection and complete and total relaxation promotes healing on all levels. The focus on expansion will benefit the physical body as well as nurture the spirit. Students will leave feeling lighter and freer, with open and nourished bodies and minds.
