Chapter 2: Monkey hands!
In this workshop, I will provide you with the structure and bases to build your handstand practice upon strength, alignment and proper shape, safely and with a lot of fun.
Partners drills, trust, laughs, monkey movements, self practice, yoga flows, yummy stretches and dynamic warm ups…just some of the tools we will be using to prepare the body and the mind for this journey.
“It is time to play. to move. Shake. Get upside down. To create shapes. To move from the soul to the bones.“
If you already find yourself in the path towards handstand and can hold it for a few seconds, I can offer some new ways to challenge and refine your practice, so come and join us!!!
“Master the fundamentals, so you can forget them and improvise.”
ASHTANGA YOGA, THE BASICS.
This workshop offers an introduction to the practice and theory of traditional Ashtanga Yoga.

Ashtanga yoga is characterised by its focus on vinyasa (synchronised breathing and movement), that creates a constant flow between the more static, traditional yoga postures.
Focusing on the 3 key elements of practice the Ujai breath, the asanas and the drishtis – we will gradually build the foundations for a daily yoga practice. The postures are specifically designed to balance strength and flexibility, while simultaneously focusing and calming the mind.
