Upside Down! Inside Out!

Advanced Yoga Series focusing on Inversions

This workshop series is designed for the serious student and teacher in mind, but is open to anyone who wants to explore active challenging asana, including inverted and some back-bending poses.  Each session we will focus on specific areas and inversion/s and the intention is to bring delight and an exploratory perspective to these poses, while cultivating inner body awareness to support outer body movement.  The series is not about acrobatic prowess, but more about opening to the belly, central channel and an imaginative, balanced practice that informs every aspect of one’s life and being. 

Options will be given to those not inverting but you need to be able to participate in the preparations and take care of yourself...ie know your limits!

Sundays 1/21 1-5pm, 2/11 1-5pm, 3/11 1-5pm   at You and the Mat, Piedmont Ave, Oakland.   More information about specific sessions will be available late October.   Participants are encouraged to sign up for the entire series and will receive manual/handouts.  Drop-ins if space exists ( no supplemental material ).   Save the dates now and enquire further in late fall.
