Event description

Description

A playful introduction to the world of inversions. The action of shifting our natural view of the world offers simple access to a different perspective and the experience of being truly present. These postures though difficult provide an opportunity to both embrace the inner child and challenge potential fears. Beginning with a Yoga flow and targeted exercises to mobilise the shoulders and activate the core. Building upon this practice, we will develop a strong foundation through which you will feel confident to approach headstands and handstands alike. Whether you are new to inversions or have some experience of being upside down, you will find this workshop both challenging and accessible.

About Samuel:
Samuel is a qualified personal trainer with an energetic passion for exercise and nutrition. He worked as a chef for many years. Growing up in Malaysia and Nigeria, he spent a lot of time in the jungle and ocean, fostering his enjoyment of physical activity. For as long as he can remember, he has participated and competed in a range of sports and recreational activities, including swimming, climbing, surfing and cycling. Samuel began practicing Yoga eight years ago and enjoyed the benefits so much, that he wanted to share it with everyone. It is now an immovable part of his daily routine and continues to grow. Functional mobility plays a significant role in both teaching and training. This style of practice reinforces a deep love for acrobalance and circus training. He believes circus skills are a fantastic way to develop the mind and body in unison, alongside spiritual discovery through regular meditation. Samuel strives to incorporate his multi-disciplinary talents into his training and is constantly searching for new and exciting ways to develop his practice both mentally and physically.

Directions: If you are coming by car you need to take the Salts Mill Road either via Otley Road or Saltaire Road& Victoria St Shipley. From Salts Mill Road take a left on to Ashley lane. The Merchant Quay Building is a red brick building just set back off Ashley Lane after Rustons building. There's parking close to it. As usual we're using the back entrance - they'll be an A board on Ashley Lane directing you to this door. If coming by foot you can access Ashley Lane from Victoria St shipley or Victoria Road Saltaire. If from Saltaire you take the road that runs behind Salts Mill to Ashley Lane. This road however closes around 6:30pm so for this session that route will not be available. Hope this makes sense! if you have any issues finding please call me 07901866259. Regarding Yoga

Mats Equipment: If you have your own mat please feel free to bring that or you are very welcome to borrow one of the used one's along with the bricks/ belts. I am selling brand new hardwearing burgundy or purple yoga mats for £16 at class - they're really lovely and a great investment if you would like to purchase one for yourself. I would strongly recommend you have your own mat if you are wishing to build up a regular practice. Please let me know if you would like to order one so l can have them ready for you at the session.

Its recommended to practice yoga on an empty stomach and leave 2 hours between eating a heavy meal and the start of class. If you are hungry before class a light snack should be fine. Please bring some water with you and wear comfy clothes that you can stretch in - leggings/ loose pants/ shorts/ jogging bottoms & tshirt/ vest top are recommended.
