Workshops

Going upside down - change your perspective for the New Year - with Jayne Miller

Spend a wonderful afternoon exploring your relationship with gravity and start the new year with the best possible outlook! After a flowing warm-up including strength building shoulder and core work (excellent post festive feeding) we will explore some arm balances and inversions before attempting or improving our forearm balances and handstands, whether you are working towards a handstand tuck, or just trying to get your feet a few inches from the ground. There will be techniques and options for all. We will finish with restorative inversions using props.

There are many reported benefits of inversions — from improving the circulation and immune system, toning the organs, to renewing creativity and even slowing the aging process. But the benefit that needs no supporting evidence, is that they make you feel happy and improve confidence.
Come along and put your feet up!

**You do not have to be able to do a headstand, handstand or any arm balances — there will be steps, modifications and options offered.
If you are already confident with inversions, that’s brilliant… you will get ideas for different variations and techniques. There will be plenty of encouragement, support and tips for taking your practice further wherever you are.

The class will conclude with a deep restorative relaxation to consolidate the benefits of the practice.
