The Yoga Sutras say a posture should be both sthira (stable) and sukha (comfortable). Headstand, known as the “King Asana”, requires physical strength, and calmness of mind to feel both stable and at ease while in it.
If you’ve heard teachers offer headstand in class but haven’t actually been taught how to approach the pose, or want to refine your alignment, and are ready to add funky variations and ways to transition, this workshop is for you!
Skills we will go over include: Building a foundation - poses to practice on your own that will help you to get in the direction of being able to bear weight on your head/neck.Proper alignment so you can practice and hold a safe headstand. Modifications - if you are brand new to this pose or working with an injury, we will teach you ways you can still practice so that you maintain the strength in your body to eventually get up, or similar poses that will give you the same benefits if you don’t want to bear weight on your head!
Advanced variations of the pose and fun transitions into other poses from headstand once you can safely hold the pose!
Workshop price: $45.
