Join To Start Course

Focus

This is the last in our series of classes combining inversions with the main groups of yoga poses. In this class inversions are built into a sequence that also contains some of the more commonly practiced restorative poses. Techniques from the preceding classes are developed to the point where all of the inversions are practiced in their final stage. The class guides you in how to practice sirsasana (headstand), adho mukha vrksasana (handstand) and sarvangasana (shoulderstand).

In addition to these inversions, the sequence also includes chest opening restorative poses. These calming poses can help to combat stress. Their rejuvenating qualities can be beneficial when your energy levels are depleted. They are also helpful for improving awareness of how you breathe.

Key Poses

Adho mukha vrksasana, sirsasana, sarvangasana, setu bandha sarvangasana, viparita karani

Equipment

Mat, chair, bolster, 3 blankets, 2 blocks, belt
