This workshop is suited to all skill and strength levels including beginners, novices and intermediate practitioners looking to advance their yoga practice. It is also a great option for anyone looking to add a different dimension to their strength training.

muscles within the pelvis and learn to relax and release your hips. Be

ready for a deep journey into the inner body complete with a detailed

muscular and skeletal technique and the subtle body of emotions and

tolerance in the deepest regions of the pelvis and watch your hips

Handstand LoversWorkshop

No matter how long you practice handstand is a benchmark of strength

and steadiness that transcends physical disciplines. From yoga to

martial arts to gymnastics a stable handstand is the key test of

alignment and mastery. The only thing you need to join this class is a

love of handstands. Whether you are a total beginner or have a stable

support your handstanding journey.
