Inversion 101

IMG_7203.jpg

No experience necessary! 

Think you can't fly? This workshop will show you that you can! Practice your inversions while receiving specialized hands on assistance and tips for perfecting headstand, forearm stand and handstand. Ahmed says, get ready to share space, learn and have fun! 

As an established and well-known yoga instructor in the Washington, DC area Ahmed 'The Yogi Man' has become a loved fixture in the DC yoga community. You might know him by his friendly demeanor that wants yoga to be accessible to all people, of all fitness levels, no matter where they live. You might recognize him as the instructor who can be found talking with his students before and after class about their favorite poses, and the best place to practice with a view. (We know his favorite is handstands... just about anywhere!) Or you may simply have seen his familiar face biking all over town.

*This is a workshop, no refunds. If canceled within 24 hours studio credit may be available*

Rocket Yoga Takeover

Five points.jpg

Rocket Yoga is based on a modification of the Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga Primary and Intermediate series, originally developed by Pattabhi Jois. Why Rocket?? Because it wakes up your nervous system, floods your being with fresh, vibrant energy, and instills within you a renewed sense of freedom, lightness, and clarity.

It's said that "Rocket gets you there faster", so strap on your seatbelts, and get ready for the ride of your life!

Floating in Session

Build on your already strong foundation. Learn how to float through Tristana. Tristana is a beautiful combination of Bandha, Pranayama and Drishti. As you focus on Tristana the practice starts to change. Learn specific preparatory techniques (check-ups) for yoga postures such as Crow, One-Legged Crow, Peacock, Side-Crow, One-Legged Sage, Flying Splits, Eight Angled Pose and Fire-fly. Be ready to laugh a lot!! 

Rocket 2

The Rocket 2 class is based on the Secondary Series of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. Focused on core, stability, mobility, Backbends and strength, this sequence opens the body from the ground up. Advanced classes are ideal for the regular practitioner or for those ready to commit to their practice. The pace is demanding and the instruction is less extensive than an All Levels class. You will practice inversions in this class, including handstands and forearm stands. Each class begins with sun salutations, progresses through a standing sequence building energy for the seated sequence, and closes with the Ashtanga finishing sequence. Familiarity with sun salutations and finishing postures is ideal, but not essential.
