News and Announcements
Inversion Workshop with Brent Coleman and Gillian St. Clair
In this workshop, we will organize and stabilize ourselves on multiple planes before fully inverting with a sense of calm and clarity. Handstand will get the majority of our attention, but there will be time for variations on forward balances and headstand as well. I will present steps for strength and awareness for beginners and fun transitions for the more advanced. The focus will be on careful attention to detail and everyone having a place to work in each exhilarating posture.
Brent and Gillian are on their way to lead workshops at Wanderlust in Vermont and are stopping in Buffalo to offer an Inversion workshop.
