NEW DATE! Intro to Inversions: Change Your Perspective, Change Your Mind
Saturday, September 30 2:30pm — 5:00pm
with Sondra Sun
Join Sondra for a small-group workshop where she'll guide you through the preparations necessary for a successful inversion.
Hesitant to try inversions like headstand and handstand? Strength and balance are needed but the mindset also matters. Let's work through the preparations necessary for a successful inversion. We'll go deep, learning what parts of the body need to activate and how to use props to assist the body when we need them.
Inversions are a literal flipping of one's perspective, and traditionally are thought to help with stagnation, lethargy and depression. In my yoga teacher training, my teachers would have us all do inversions in our afternoon sessions when we were falling into post-lunch sleepiness. They are invigorating, energizing and fun!
This workshop is limited to a small number of participants so that everyone will have the opportunity for one-on-one attention and feedback on their inversion practice. If you've never gotten into an inversion, then this workshop is for you, too! Learn the poses that help build the strength and confidence needed to get to the next step.
There will be assists, some partner work, and time for questions.
$45 (members save 10%). Tickets are non-refundable.
About Sondra Sun
Sondra first discovered yoga practice as a stressed out office worker suffering a variety of health issues. Through high-pressure careers in public health and the NYC fashion industry, yoga helped her feel more at ease in body and mind. Yoga has helped her navigate life with greater mindfulness and compassion.
Sondra became a teacher in 2012 to share the life changing power of yoga with others. Her classes are informed by her 20+ years of personal practice, Vipassana meditation, a nerd's love of anatomy, and a musician's intuition for steady pacing and harmony. When taking her classes, expect to find a focus on alignment and breath.
As a teacher, Sondra welcomes all bodies and all experience levels. She is passionate about meeting students where they are, and about introducing yoga to absolute beginners. In 2018, she co-created and continues to co-lead the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification for Highland Park Yoga.
Sondra's other passions include rock climbing, Buddhist psychology, creating music and poetry, connecting people, fostering community, leading yoga retreats and workshops.
Sondra is grateful to have studied with Leigh Evans, Summer Deaver, Annie Carpenter, Leslie Kaminoff, Jason Ray Brown (anatomy), Alison West, and Jason Crandell among many others.
