Headstand Workshop. Sunday 8th July. 90 minutes. £20
An immersive headstand session to help prepare the body and mind for practising headstands. Mastering headstands does not require great strength, the main factor that needs to be overcome is fear and believing that you can do it. Moving slowly and with the breath, learning how to build a solid base to help give you a good understanding of how to set up correctly.
Sirshasana or headstand is also referred to as the king of asana as the posture has so many benefits for your mind and body. By reversing the nature of gravity, the pose helps to rest the heart, aids circulation and relieves pressure on the lower back.
Headstand nourishes the crown chakra by drawing blood to the head which carries prana to the 7th spiritual centre.
The session will be followed with a delicious green organic juice.
