Safe, Smart Inversions for All Bodies

Join Chintamani (a.k.a. “C”) on Saturday, April 27, 1:15-3:15 pm for an energetic flow yoga class incorporating core strength, followed by detailed discussion, pose break-down, practice and assistance.  You will come away feeling strong, clear and empowered!

 

Don’t worry if Inversions seem scary.  There is always an inversion anyone can do!  You will benefit from watching others and working with the group in a supportive community setting.  Advanced practitioners will have time and space to work on core and endurance, and review safety tips.

"The inversion class was so empowering. I was able to give it a try of a handstand pose even though I've never done it before, because I knew you were there to keep me safe. Also I was inspired to keep practicing, to not stress out about my current capability but just feel empowered that I will keep trying. Thank you."

"I had never done a proper inversion before. Under C’s watchful (and playful) eye, I tried a headstand, handstand, forearm stand and shoulder stand in my first ever inversions class!  And I attribute the successes I had in each to the safe and comfortable atmosphere C creates which empowers you to push your limits. Thank you for reintroducing me to my body. "
