Heels Over Head: A Handstand Workshop with Kevin Boyle
Saturday, 31 August 2019, 1pm – 3pm
€35 (Workshop now full – email email@example.com to be put on waiting list for cancellations)
Conquering fear is the first hurdle we face in our handstand practice. In can be a lonely, frustrating and unfulfilling road. But fear not! In this fun and creative workshop, we’ll work together to build your confidence and give you the tools to safely get upside down.
We’ll delve into anatomy, specific strength movements, handstand variations, various entry and exit transitions and partner work.
This workshop is suitable for all levels, including complete beginners.
My wish is for you to leave this experience with a deeper understanding of alignment and technique that will encourage you to start introducing handstands into your yoga practice more often.
