Yoga Workshop 7 headstands and handstands


The 3 hour workshop will explore some of the challenging aspects of the Rocket Yoga and intermediate Ashtanga Vinyasa sequences. The Rocket is a series of postures aimed to wake up the nervous system and build strength. Created by Larry Schultz, the Rocket makes advanced poses accessible to beginners and more experienced practitioners alike.

We will start building strength by isolating areas of the body and then introduce arm balancing sequences, handstand practice and 7 headstands Baddha Hasta Sirsasana A, B, C and D mukta hasta sirsasana A, B, C within the context of a Rocket routine. We use group work to support some of these postures all the time using tristana (breath, bandha, dristi) whilst stimulating both sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems.
