Joyful Inversions Workshop: cultivating courage through play + getting upside down safely - September 2018

  • Light Space Private Studio Near Harlyn Primary School Pinner, England, HA5 United Kingdom (map)

Inversions help us to explore the things that scare us but to do so it's important to establish an environment and practice that we find supportive so that we feel safe to be playful and explore. 

This workshop will explore a joyful, playful, supportive and safe inversion practice and answer questions such as: 

  • What's all the fuss about - why do we do inverted postures such as downward dog, headstand and shoulderstand?
  • What are the benefits? What are the risks?
  • How can I explore the things that scare me safely?
  • How can I make room in my life for uncomfortable lessons?
  • What safe variations can I take to still benefit from the practice?

Then join us on 15 September, 11.30AM at Light Space Private Studio for this exploration of heart over head.

We will look at ways to get upside down without strain, offering a practice to protect and benefit our body, ensuring we carefully look at function over form so that inversions are joyful and not taxing for the body, mind and spirit.

Expect an afternoon of serious playfulness:

  • a strengthening yoga practice to prepare our body
  • some yoga theory to support our practice
  • exploration of props for safer inversions
  • a careful look at shoulder stand and headstand
