We’re so thrilled to be joining forces with the wonderful Wen-Chuan Dai to take over the West Reservoir once more! Pop the 18th October in your diary; we’ll be kicking the evening off at 7pm.
It’s cold and gross outside so we’ll be warming up from the inside out. Wen - who is just the most joyful and generous teacher - will lead an athletic vinyasa with a strong focus on learning inversions for those who aren’t quite ready to go upside down in an open class.
In yoga, an inversion is any movement or pose that involves the head being below the heart. Why do we invert? For the fun of it; to flip our perspective; to conquer our fears; to build core strength, balance, and increase circulation; or to do that thing you saw on Instagram!
Whatever your aim, this event will take you through safe ways of entering and exiting inversions and building strength and control to go upside down in your yoga practice. With more time and more 1:1 attention we’ll work more comprehensively than in a typical group yoga class. It’s an ideal introduction for beginners, but more challenging modifications will be offered to those who are keen. We will move through gentle inversions like standing forward folds and dolphin pose, and work our way up to poses that require supporting our body weight on our arms.
No matter your level of practice, this is a perfect opportunity to learn a few new tricks. And the perfect place to do it in; the West Reservoir is an amazing venue totally hidden from the London bustle! Come and join us for a Friday night of playful practice and start your weekend invigorated, enthused, and inspired.
