Handstand in yoga represents one of the biggest challenges for many yogis.
Not just because it's physically hard, but it requires strength of the mind, total focus and patience. Overcoming the fear of falling is one of the most freeing sensation one can experience, and as any other inversion pose, achieving handstand works as a metaphor for obstacles in life, teaches about failure as a necessary part of success.
Learning how to handstand is not a one time achievement, but rather a long journey, oftentimes taking many years – and then more years after, to perfect the straight line, build stamina in longer holds or achieving deep backbends in it.
In this workshop, we will tackle the basic principles, alignment, drills and techniques to start, but also continue your handstand journey. We will work in a safe environment, with proper explanation on how to enter, learn to balance and how to fall without injuries. You will leave this workshop with a better understanding of what is important in balancing on your hands and how to achieve it in a best way for your body and mind type.
Inversion Workshop Series
This series of workshops will introduce you to the basics of inverting your body into a headstand, forearmstand and handstand. Additionally, the handstand workshop will happen twice, at the beginning of May and beginning of August, to check on you progress, answer the questions and get new tools and techniques to keep you motivated to practice further. Because inversions are a journey!
It's all about practice: Similar to yoga practice itself, inversions can become almost addictive, once you have one, you want to collect them all. Or maybe you like to just give a it a go once, that’s ok as well! Inversions are inspiring, challenging (for some!), and sometimes it requires a shift and proper technique, in order to overcome the fear of them.
Who is this workshop for? If you are a passionate beginner, that likes to start building the proprioception and techniques for inverting already; or been practicing for some time now, but didn’t get into the inverted positions yet; these workshops are perfect for you. We will learn the basics of balancing, tools in how to get stronger, to find control and even how to fail or fall from a position in a safe way.
The workshop is suitable for yoga beginners. If you have any neck related injuries, or diagnosed osteoporosis, this workshop is not recommended by us.
