Master Class: Off Your Feet, Onto Your Hands (Inversions)

  • Essencia Yoga Wellness Center 1026 College Avenue Wheaton, IL, 60187 United States (map)

Give yourself the time to move into places you have never been. There will be asana, pranayama, a little philosophy, even some anatomy. It is an all-encompassing class that will allow you to feel the energy of others who are openly exploring their own limits with you.  It is a great opportunity to meet other teachers, Essencia Yoga Grads as well as our Advanced Training Trainees.  Followed by 20 minutes of Brilliant Restorative Poses and refreshments.

This workshop is for those who are ready to move from balancing on their feet to balancing on their hands. We will work with the intention of moving beyond our mental framework to new heights. This empowering experience will open our eyes to the fears we hold on to and enable us to move beyond obstacles that keep us from break-through’s in our life. We will see things upside down and all around while we examine the poses that build strength allow us to safely explore. Many options and modifications will be offered like side plank, crow, and side crow. We will do protective counter-poses for the wrists, shoulders, core and more.  Be prepared to do some core work as well as arm strengthening Vinyasa practice.

(A great chance to talk about Teacher Training program if if that is something you are interested in pursuing.)

Experiencing being present, in a master class, where all of the core features of a yoga class can be experienced, transformation is part of the equation. It is not an easy road when we choose to face any physical challenges or internal obstacles, even doubts and fears.

We will need to be open to see our own blockages and judgments and then the potential of having each challenge uncover the potential for growth through healing that comes from being empowered to see. And then from seeing, we breathe, and then from breathing we are able to behold the “Source” of breath … the Divine. While engaging in this union, we come away with clarity, love and deepened peace.
