Inversions Yoga Course with Ashley Ahrens
£70 for 4 x sessions
This 4-week Inversions Yoga Course with Ashley Ahrens is new to Yogarise Peckham for February 2023! Think headstands, handstands, forearm stand and more…
Do you want to be a confident inverter or frequent flier? Or perhaps you have seen teachers or others in class going into these postures but never had the time or space to try it? This 4-part course of workshops is for you!
Ashley will help you to fully understand how to set up the foundations of your inversions for safe practice, how to build strength to get upside down, and what you need to work on to stay inverted with more ease. Over the course of 4 weeks we will break down inversions to give you all the tools you need to confidently bring these postures into your regular classes:
Feb 22nd – Week 1 – headstand & variations, including tripod – how to get into the postures and where you’ll encounter these most of the time in your class, how to modify and try some transitions and variations
March 1st – Week 2 – forearm stand – straight line pincha – anatomy and drills
March 8th – Week 3 – handstand – straight line, anatomy and drills
March 15th – Week 4 – modified variations of forearm and handstand – we’ll bring everything we’ve learned over the last 3 weeks into our final class and try all the tricky variations – funky, backbends and more!
Ashley has been practicing yoga for 13 years and teaching for over a decade. She teaches Ashtanga, Rocket, Vinyasa, Sattva, Hatha & Yin. Before yoga she was a science nerd (still is!) and worked/studied in genetics & cancer, and has an in-depth knowledge of human anatomy. She knows how hard inversions are to start with and has gone through the journey of really struggling with downward dog/chaturangas to (over time and loads of committed practice) developing a strong and controlled upside down practice.
This course is for anyone interested in learning how to invert but suggested to have a minimum of 6 months regular practice, not for absolute beginners.
This fab course needs a minimum of 8 participants to run. Booking essential 🙂
