WORKING TOWARDS HANDSTANDS  with Flame (Rachel Young)

15.00pm - 18.00 £ 30.00

Have you tried all the techniques but it’s just not happening? Or you can do the handstands, but it feels wrong, like it takes too much stress and strain? Or maybe you’re just thinking handstands aren’t for you, but still curious? .. You’re going to like this workshop!

 

Instead of just collecting new skills, you'll learn a holistic way of being in your body and mind, that makes handstands, and everything, a whole lot easier, using your breath, connecting to feeling, and leading with natural movements from your center, in a way that makes challenges that bit easier. 

We'll work together looking at.. 

  • Several ways to move into & fall out of handstands.

  • How to stay safe, preventing injury

  • Body mechanics and optimal position for making challenges easier - hollowing your body

  • How to develop the kind of strength, flexibility and mobility needed for handstands - tons of core and scapula strengthening 

  • Explore playfully and enjoy

 

The most important place you can be is right where you are! This workshop is open level!! Yes everyone of any ability is welcome.

Anna, born and raised in the Swiss mountains. First qualified as a Yoga instructor in Thailand (RYT-200) and furthered her education with another 100 hours in Yin here at the studio (YUJMU). With the long-term vision of making the gap between physiology and psychology smaller, she is eager to expand her knowledge in both fields and beyond. Rather than as a yoga teacher, she sees herself as a student of yoga and of teaching who helps guiding others in their own practices. What she loves most about leading classes is the endless creativity that it allows for and she likes to think that her seeable enthusiasm and passion lead yogis to find ease. 

Going into one of her classes, you should expect creative sequences accompanied by self-compiled playlists and a (hopefully) charming accent.
