It was my pleasure to teach Handstands again at Red Hot Yoga Surrey! It’s always nice to re-visit a studio and see familiar faces.
This was a 2 hour workshop, slightly longer than my regular 90 minute class. Everybody who enrolled was very capable and made good progress through the session.
We started with drills in the same way a gymnastics class would begin. I ask people to try a range of different movements including cartwheels, jumping to crow, bunny hops, and reagular handstands.
I make sure everybody feels safe, people are instructed to work at their own pace and I always explain simpler and more challenging versions of each exercise.
The drills help people get out of their head and into their body, loosening up and getting in the flow is half the battle.
Once we’ve finished with the line drills we get into pairs and spot each other for straight Handstands. I always make time in the class to work on yoga style Inversions such as crow variations and forearm stands.
We also do many exercises against the wall, this is a great way of progressing shoulder strength and endurance and also finding balance. I ask everybody to practise both ways faceing towards and away from the wall.
A fun part of every workshop is making time for photographs. This might seem like just vanity, but the reality is – people love to get a photo of themselves doing a great handstand. Let’s face it, this is acrobatics and it’s all about showing off our skills.
I look forward to my next visit to Red Hot Yoga in Guildford.
If you would like me to visit your studio please find my information here.
Finally our first handstand workshop at the fantastic Trike Yoga Studios – Bristol – is scheduled!
15th April 2017 10:30am-12:00pm.
I first became aware of Charlene – the owner of Trike Yoga – when I started seeing her photos popping up on Instagram. Here posts really stood out, and the quality and professionalism of her yoga practise was clear.
It took me a while to finally visit Trika and meet Charlene for the first time, I attended a Vinyasa Flow class using MoveGB.
The studio is white and bright, and has a minimalistic and clean style. There is two studios, a smaller one, and a larger room which we will use for the handstand workshop.
My handstand classes / workshops are very popular within the yoga community. Although I’m not a yoga teacher, I do attended 4-5 yoga classes per week, as well as gymnastics, dance, capoerira, and my own hand balancing practise.
This will be a 90 minute workshop in which we focus entirely on Handstands, yoga Inversions, and strength drills to contribute to long term handstand stability.
