Focus: Focus exclusively on inversions with this class. In addition to sirsasana (headstand) and sarvangasana (shoulderstand) the class also features pincha mayurasana (forearm balance) and adho mukha vrksasana (handstand). Some preparatory versions of each pose are also included. These preparatory variations are intended to consolidate strength and refine technique in students who are already regularly practicing inversions but will also be helpful if you are less familiar with this asana group. There are many benefits that flow from the regular practice of inversions. They can help to recalibrate your energy levels, assist with venous and lymphatic drainage, cultivate core strength and foster mindfulness. When practiced regularly, inversions can become a key part of your home yoga practice.
