Conquer Inversions: The Art of Going Upside Down

headstand

with Catherine Marquette

Saturday December 2, 2-4 PM

We all need a new perspective on life when things turn upside down. The inverted asanas help us cultivate just that. Come spend two hours breaking down the component parts of Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand), Pincha Mayurasana (forearm stand) Sirsasana (headstand) and Salamba Sarvangasana (shoulderstand). Turning your world upside down has never been more fun! You’ll walk away with having cultivated the strength, courage and joy that can come from doing just that. Playful mindset welcome.
