Handstands and Arm Balances: Beyond the wall
Saturday 22nd 4-6pm
This workshop is intended to be fluid and flexible based on individual needs: a great follow on from the the initial Handstand Workshop, as well as a solid stand alone session. We will implement the skills, techniques and drills covered, as well as spend time exploring a range of handstand transitions, arm balances, and any topics of interest you hope to learn! It’s all fun here, and the perfect environment to get confident on your hands.
Sunday 23rd 2.30-4pm
This class will focus on Yin Yoga. It is the perfect session to unwind, relax and deeply work into the connective tissue, fascia, bones and ligaments. Whether you are new to Yin, or regularly practice it, you will learn a great deal about anatomy and why Yin should be a regular component of your Yoga practice.
Friday 21st 7-8.30pm
A fun and challenging Yoga flow with plenty of playtime and pose breakdowns. You will have freedom to modify based on your individual level. Come along, have fun, and enjoy working up a sweat on your mat!
Saturday 22nd 12-2pm
This workshop explores the secrets to unlocking handstands and arm balances - particularly, the elusive straight handstand.
You will build your knowledge and understanding around anatomy, as well as develop essential skills and tools to condition and train your handstand.
This session is perfect for absolute beginners looking to build the confidence to get off their feet, advanced practitioners looking to refine and hone their handstand ability, as well as teachers looking to expand their teaching experience and learn hands on approaches to working with students. Come along and have fun getting upside down!

Do you struggle to figure out the alignment and understanding of your shoulders? That’s because the shoulder girdle is a complex and highly mobile region of the body. The shoulder is like an orchestra, when it is in sync and being well conducted it performs beautifully. But there are a lot of moving parts that can break down and get out of sync. Coordinated muscle action is essential for movement and stability in the shoulders. In this practice we will dive into the anatomy to understand the entire shoulder girdle, arms and hands to create a sustainable practice full of possibility. Great for anyone with shoulders, Yogi or not!
Each week we open our studio doors for a donation based class where all proceeds go directly to Woman's Refuge. With our rotating roster of teachers you get to experience different styles and teachers each week and give back to an amazing charity while you move to feel good yourself.
