Saturday 2nd June

11.30-2.30pm

My inversion workshops create a safe and comfortable environment for you to begin, or deepen, your headstand practice. They are designed to be suitable for absolute beginners who have never even considered attempting a headstand before, to experienced practitioners who are looking for their next challenge. It takes the time to ensure everyone understands the correct alignment and body positioning within a headstand and how you can isolate different parts of your body to achieve this upside down. The workshop will equip you with everything you need to know to train your inversions – from building up strength and flexibility to ways of progressing into harder variations. The workshop will enable you to leave with a deeper understanding of inversions, particularly headstands, and be able to integrate all of the tips, tricks and steps into your own personal practice.

This motivating and educational 3-hour workshop will inspire you to push yourself in a positive way. The workshop will focus on building up to a variety of different headstands, regardless of your experience with them at present, and leave you feeling motivated, strong and confident after learning new things about these poses and about yourself along the way.
