Strength & Release - Handstands & Bodywork Workshop
Strength & Release: Handstands & Bodywork Workshop
Join us in sharing two of the most healing and transformative practices weve been using and honing for the past few years: handstands and bodywork.
The Handstand Part:
Handstand practice develops focus, determination and physical and mental strength to overcome what seems impossible. It is a journey of patience and trust in the process of learning. Taking us out of our heads and into our bodies, reversing the flow of blood and leaving us feeling lighter and more energised. Learning to handstand is learning to be playful and childlike again.
Beginning with breath work to centre ourselves and wrist and hand care to keep our balancing tools healthy and happy.
Then moving through a yoga sequence preparing the core, shoulders and hips for handstands.
From here its playtime! Working in groups, pairs and individually using drills to feel confident and strong in our handstand practice.
If you are completely new to handstands or have been playing around with handstands for some time, theyll be something here for everyone and everyone is welcome.
The Yoga Bodywork Part:
Yoga Bodywork is a fusion of massage, myofascial release, breathwork and yoga used to support the body to relax, release and heal itself from pain, injury and physical and emotional holdings.
Yoga Bodywork also identifies weak and overworking muscles, movement and breathing patterns.
In this session we will use yoga bodywork to increase breath and release tension to improve our handstand practice (and our overall well being!)
We are absolutely delighted to be fusing our two loves together in this collaborative workshop and cant wait to share them with you!
