Whether you’re a beginner or looking to dive deeper into your headstand , forearm or handstand journey, this Inversions workshop is for you

Incorporating headstands and handstands into your yoga practice, gym/crossfit training or calisthenics training can improve your physical fitness, body awareness, and mental wellbeing.

Regular practice can also help you develop better balance, control, and stability in your movements, which can improve your overall yoga practice and make challenging transitions or balancing poses more manageable.

Beyond the physical benefits, these inversions require courage and vulnerability, which can help you develop confidence and overcome fears. The sense of accomplishment from achieving a challenging pose can be incredibly empowering and boost your self-esteem. By incorporating headstands and handstands into your yoga practice, you can improve your physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing and take your practice to new heights.
