Build Inversions Safely

Desiree Rumbaugh

Unless you have had gymnastics training, you will probably notice that Inversions are very challenging and sometimes seemingly impossible poses. Beginning to practice inversions as an adult is an extraordinary achievement and one we believe is worth your time. It is, however, very important to have the proper conditioning to make your journey safe and productive. Here is a simple routine designed to prepare you physically and mentally for this feat. If you have tight shoulders, take more time during the week to do the shoulder stretching that is demonstrated in this video. Also, practice the preparations for inversions without going fully upside down often so you become more accustomed to the blood pressure changes that occur when you are upside down.

Keith Allen

Flow, move, breathe, and learn in this playful and well-rounded practice. This is a slower moving, yet challenging class, that focuses on building strength and holds poses for a little longer than the typical flow class. The class opens the entire body including the shoulders, hips, legs, and core. You’ll also learn new tricks to help gradually go upside down in handstand and a chance to enjoy shoulder stand. Inversions are powerful tools for mental, physical, and emotional health and valuable yoga postures to practice. This class will leave you feeling empowered and strong.

Shifting Paradigms

Dana Smith

It is said that change is the only constant. For some, cultivating the confidence to embrace the unknown is a scary thought. If we want to change the things that we experience we must change the way we see them. Inversions are the perfect way to shift paradigms and see the world from a new perspective. In support of riding the wave of change, we will explore Sirsasana, headstand. In this energetic class, you'll learn the key actions to work towards your full expression of the pose.

Calm People Breathe

Kristen Boyle

One thing that differentiates a calm response from a reactive response is breath. Calm people breathe. In that one breath, reactivity slows, we regain access to our higher mind, and we respond better.

Yoga is an amazing practice, allowing us to meet ourselves on the mat each time, noticing when reactions arise, frustration, elation, edges of intensity, and we train ourselves that through it all, we can breathe, and remain steady and calm.

This class includes refined cues for engagement and exploration, making each pose a bit more intense. With longer holds and a steady flow, you will feel it. Exploring your own alignment, you will build to the peak pose, pincha myurasana, or forearm stand, at the wall.

Turn Your Day Around

Keith Allen

Sometimes to turn your day around, you must turn your body upside down. Some days effortlessly feel better than others, but luckily, yoga has the power to take any day into a more positive direction. Whether you're having an excellent day or struggling, this short practice will get stuck energy flowing, your breath deep, and leave you feeling refreshed. This practice gradually touches everything from hips, heart, shoulders, twists, and culminates with an inversion, which are the most effective shapes for boosting one's mood.

Everyday Yamas: Asteya

Kristin Gibowicz

Practicing Asteya, or non-stealing, is knowing the division between need and greed. Maybe we don't shoplift, but do we steal other's thunder by interjecting or not-fully listening? Do we steal from others by being late or wasting time on social media at work? The practice of posture and breath can help integrate mind, body & spirit to bring revelation to areas of our life where we need to upgrade our ethical walk. This practice focuses on shoulders, legs, upper back and hips building to forearm stand. Even if full expression is not for you, learn the building blocks to make you successful in your expression today.

Everyday Yamas: Brahmacharya

Kristin Gibowicz

From an everyday yama perspective, we'll focus on where we put our energy. Traditionally, Brahmacharya was meant for male renunciants to practice sexual restraint and focus on the yogic path. Another interpretation of this virtue is moderation. Living in our modern world, do we focus on external things and temporary satisfaction or are we recognizing excess in our lives and practicing moderation to grow spiritually? This is a short, wonderful, full-body flow that uses different muscles groups and moves continuously, to makes you feel like you flowed for an entire hour.

Everyday Yamas: Aparigraha

Kristin Gibowicz

A yogi finds two drunken men in a boat on the Ganges River and asks them, "Where are you going?" They replied, "To the other side of the river." The next day the yogi finds the men in the same place rowing and tells them with compassion in his eyes, "Perhaps you want to untie yourself from the river bank."

What are you holding onto? Aparigraha is one of then 5 yamas or ethical codes that means "non-hoarding." Enjoy Kristin's fun class full of flow and opportunities to un-tether from what's holding you back from the fullness life has for you.

Guidelines for a Balanced Life: Building blocks

Les Leventhal

Inversions: Handstand, forearm balance and tri-pod headstand. We get so familiar in looking at things through one lens. Give yourself permission to grow the muscles of courage and trust - key ingredients to navigating fear in our lives. Go upside down. I wish I could tell you that these 3 poses would eliminate fear in your life. I cannot. What I can do is make you a promise: Practice this video with or without any of the variations I offer, at least once a week, and you will learn to navigate fear in your life off the mat. The power that you will feed your body from these poses will create strength and vitality in your soul that will carry you through all of life's experiences. I would not say that if it was not my experience. These poses are like the 9th step promises from recovery for me. They deliver every time. Trust and Courage, will always materialize if we work for them. Have a blast. This video is meant to be super fun.

Fearless Flyers: Safety First with Inversions

Desiree Rumbaugh & Michelle Marchildon

Fearless After Fifty: Bonus Video

Who doesn’t want to fly, feel strong and build trust in the Universe? That’s what we’re having, but to be honest, older warriors have more risk when it comes to balancing out the rewards. We must have proper shoulder alignment or else we can create real and lasting problems in our upper bodies. We must be safe-ish, as a fall at sixty could likely break a hip. Therefore, we show you how to build your inner badass, at a wall. We can’t absolutely guarantee that bad things won’t happen, after all, this is life and we’re all in it together. However, if you follow these tips, you will learn how to approach an inversion practice with fearlessness, and safety first. This class is mostly a detailed demonstration of postures to practice.

Apex Fusion Inversions: Up, Under, Down & Across

Shannon Paige

Upside down is, or can be, disorienting. Inversions can take embodied skills and strength and make them more challenging to access because the brain is physically below the bodily points of engagement. A key to growing your practice in this 'upside down' way is engaging a layered conversation of skill and strength in the body to challenges of the same skill sets in slightly shifted physical orientations. This causes the practice to be as much for the mind as it is for the body. The effect not only grows the practitioner's embodiment and execution of more complex inversions over time, but also gives powerful access to a sense of increased confidence and focus.

In this session, we will muse techniques of pressing (rather than kicking) into creative, asymmetrical inversions with notable, deep backbend fusions and gorgeous variations / complications that draw methodically from embodied memory into some of your most beautiful expressions of body poetry.

This is a no nonsense, "let's get to it" backbend technique workshop that assumes you already have a strong practice and want to get down to it in an hour. We go straight at the backbends with a strong warm up, good flow and then a pause as we take time to open the shoulders at the wall in handstands and Pinchya Myurasana ( forearm balance) We work our quads open and then into a deep twist before diving into Ustrasana (Camel Pose) to full bow pose (Urdhva Dhanurasana), and then learning to come up and drop back at the wall. A strong, focused class which will stimulate the nervous system and bring more joy and freedom to your hip flexors, and a nice cool down and Savasana to leave you calm and peaceful. Enjoy!
