… like coconut water without coconuts.
The aim of this 2,5 hour workshop is to learn and refine Salamba Sirsasana (headstand), Salamba Sarvangasana (Shoulderstand), Pincha Mayurasana (forearm stand), Adho Mukha Vrksasana (handstand) and Viparita Karani (legs up the wall).
These inversions are embedded in a vinyasa class, from where we will zoom into the inversions mentioned above, and finishing class with gentle restorative poses.
In a playful way we will address a wide range of possible modifications on how safely and mindfully to approach the inversions. Together we will analyse and playfully move through all the progressive steps you need to build on/up a safe and fear free foundation.
This workshop is ideal for students ...
... who feel stuck to the wall
... who are afraid of coming up in the centre of the room
... who are curious about dissecting the different stages that lead to the inversion.
... who love to refine their inversion practice
Come and play.
All levels are welcome.

Since her very first class, Lydia has been mesmerized by the transformative power and impact of Yoga; that by means of breath and movement on the mat, we can explore the interconnectedness of all off the mat. She sees yoga as a holistic, radical approach to inner peace, simply by means of looking inside. In teaching, Lydia is inspired to share the obvious, so that the unobvious can continue to unfold. Yoga is for her a daily invitation to an endless deepening of inner peace and joy.
In her daily life in Amsterdam, Lydia balances work as an organ transplant coordinator with being a yoga teacher and student. She enjoys every minute of this gracious life with friends, family and in nature.
