Breaking Down Inversions

Anytime we get the hips or feet above the level of the heart, this is considered an inversion. We generally think of headstands and handstands, but even downward facing dog is an inversion.  Inversions have many mental and physical benefits but can be scary. In this class we will warm the body to prepare, then spend time understanding and practicing different versions of getting upside down, under the direction and safety of a knowledgeable teacher.
No prior experience is necessary, just a sense of humor and a willingness to play!

Our restorative/yin yoga classes are designed to increase the mind-body connection via long supportive stretches, breathwork, deep relaxation, and meditation.
