The Art & Science of Advanced Inversions with Chris Jamison

Inversions such as handstand and pincha mayurasana involve strength, flexibility, technique and a dose of courage. In this workshop we will begin by addressing the strength requirements in the core, shoulders and hands. We will progress to chest and hip openers to develop the flexibility needed in the upper back, shoulders and hamstrings. Then we will use a variety of techniques to get upside down at the wall ranging from the use of momentum to graceful floating. Once upside-down we will add techniques and drills to work on staying balanced on our forearms or hands. You can plan on a bit of work with partners, headstand variations to challenge the balance and a lot of work on your hands. Expect to be seriously challenged and pushed beyond your comfort zone. $35/members $40/non-members **Prerequisites: Headstand 1, wheel pose with straight elbows and comfort kicking up to the wall in handstand.
