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.
