Want to learn to go upside down but not sure where to start? Or perhaps you’ve been practicing inversions for a while but want to build strength or work on your alignment? Either way, this workshop-style class is for you!

In this 30-minute tutorial, we’ll discuss and demonstrate various ways you can safely practice getting in and out of Handstand, Forearm Stand and Headstand, on your own or with a friend! Starting in Downdog, we’ll look at alignment of the upper back and shoulders and learn techniques for building strength through the upper back and finding more openness through the front of the body to help inform your inversion practice. We’ll move through various practices on your mat or at the wall, that practiced overtime, will help make going upside down more accessible!
