THE STUDIOUS ONE: THE PATH TOWARDS INVERSIONS
FRANCESCA BOVE, VIALE YOGA
“Invert: because if your body can, your mind will follow.”
Learn how to go upside down by understanding the basic principles of anatomy, alignment and fluidity.
It’s time to go upside down! During this workshop, you will learn how to use simple muscle activation techniques to awaken the muscles that can help invert your practice. You will learn the mechanics of the body so that you understand the logic behind how when you organize yourself properly, the body will go upside down with less effort and more stability.
Expect to learn a few short sequences that you can practice at home and some upside down experiences. We will use the wall, blocks, and straps. All must have a willingness to jump! This workshop is open to all levels.

Stand Up: The Path Towards Shoulder Stand
with Nick Potenzieri
Known as the mother of all poses, shoulder stand (Salamba Sarvangasana) is the benchmark of a yoga practice. Calming and clarifying, a regular practice of shoulder stand can set you up for strength and ease in the body. It can help you develop the outer and inner power needed to master other inversions such as handstand, forearm stand, and headstand. It is a confidence-building pose that sets the foundation to develop your patience, emotional intelligence, and will power. And let’s face it, it’s super cool!

Nick’s positive energy as well as creative and skilled teaching has helped him work with people of all capabilities, capacities, and walks of life.
