Yoga inversions are among the most beneficial among the practice’s many varieties of asana, helping practitioners cultivate bodily balance and strength, mental flexibility and focus and emotional courage and equanimity. Literally turning ourselves upside down teaches us how to overcome our fears and trust our abilities.

Yet inversions are also understandably the most intimidating of all yogasanas. In our three-hour Inversion Fundamentals Workshop with Teacher Joana Medina, yoga practitioners will learn how to safely and systematically prepare both their bodies and their minds for performing inversions, starting from the simpler poses and building up to the more challenging ones. Specifically, the workshop will help students:

  • understand the general anatomical structure and alignment of inversions;
  • learn how to enter these poses with more ease and grace by focusing on correct weight transfer and muscular engagement;
  • build strength and stamina in the wrists, arms, shoulders and core over time with appropriate modifications and by using available props; and
  • overcome fear and cultivate confidence, courage and playfulness!

The workshop will cover essential inversions such as the Headstand (Salamba Sirsasana) and the Shoulder Stand (Salamba Sarvangasana) and their many variations. Practitioners who have never performed an inversion are highly welcome as long as they possess a sufficient level of body awareness and are willing to revisit practice fundamentals and retrain postural habits. Teacher Joana will equip participants with the tools and modifications they need to work at their current level at their chosen pace.
