So you’ve discovered your hands 🖐
You’ve been playing around for awhile and have really started to find your balance.
You notice that you are staying up there longer and longer.
You realize there is something magical about flipping your world upside down and checking things out from a different perspective.
You even enjoy the full brain squeeze required to put together the puzzle of how to achieve such feats .
And now... you’re ready for more!
Welcome to our 30hr Inversion 2.0 immersion, designed to take you to your next level of flight.
This in-person immersion will count toward 30hr of the YogaKoh 300hr YTT, as well as Continuing Education hours, both recognized through Yoga Alliance.
How often do you step outside of your comfort zone?
Are you willing to try something new?
To be humble enough to take on something challenging?
With the hope, but without the certainty, that one day you will fly?
Our physical yoga practice constantly challenges us to face and confront the self-limiting beliefs we maybe even unknowingly have bestowed upon ourselves.
So called markers of our capabilities.
But in actuality hinderances to our potentialities.
You are capable of ANYTHING, you set your mind too.
And then; yoga asks us to practice with the utmost effort and discipline without any expectation of our results.
We keep coming back to the mat.
The constant practice, the letting go, the working hard, the showing up, the being brave, the sweaty brow, the sore body, the challenged mind. All in the name of growth.
It's no secret that the ever mysterious handstand intrigues even the most seasoned yogi. There is always something else to learn, to master, to pursue, and yup... we are hooked.
This 6 night 7 day in person immersion held in beautiful Hawaii will explore the inner workings of not only your body, but also your mind. Taking your inversion practice to the next level by way of strength training, mobility work, conditioning, subtle body investigation, the breath, meditation, workshop creation and the most important PLAY.
Repeat. Positively affirming.
Knowing this truth to the deepest parts of you.
HOW IT WORKS
