Why do headstand in a yoga class? Because of gravity, blood has an easier time flowing downwards towards our feet, and makes your heart work harder to pump blood upwards towards your brain. With a consistent practice of headstand, it will give your heart a rest. Headstand provides refreshed blood to our glands and helps regulate our glands. Through headstand our adrenal glands are flushed and detoxified, to help create more positive thoughts. Also, headstand simulates a “face lift” by letting your skin hang upside down. This inverted position flushes fresh nutrients and oxygen into the face.

These are some great reasons to insert headstand into your practice. This sounds great, but what if you have walked into a multi-level class with students moving into headstand or tripod without any assistance or you are in a class with too many students to try to use the wall.

This workshop has been created to break down headstand, through each alignment to help each student to better understand how to assemble into headstand and how to find their headstand. This will be done by showing; the anatomical focus of headstand, how not using the bandhas effects headstand, and how to make sure you are breathing affects your headstand.

This workshop will also help you find your headstand and possibly explore into the different variations of headstand.

Saturday, May 17 1:30 - 3:30 PM

FEE: $25.00 preregistered; $30.00 at the door
